Passing on the Legacy and Tradition of General Choi Hong Hi and Sr. Grand Master Chuck E. Sereff
Taekwon-Do is an art that implies a way of thinking and life.
Jeontong TKD was established in August of 2018. I have been teaching for 4 years. I began my Taekwon-Do journey when I was eight years old in Clinton, Utah. Mr. David Carter was my instructor with the USTF. I trained with him for 4 years and earned my Black Black in November of 1993. After Mr. Carter stopped instructing I trained on and off through High school with Mr. Dan Gordon, and Master Ron Britt.
After a 17 year break from active training I reached out to Sr. Master Dubbeld in 2016 to find out if there was an instructor in my area. Mrs. Holyoak Hurdman taught in Layton. My son, Bryan and I trained with her until the summer of 2018 when I started my own school. Jeontong means Legacy/Tradition in Korean. I wanted to pass on what I had learned from my instructors. I am grateful to be a part of the USTF and the UCHTA. I appreciate all their support. I am looking forward to instructing many students and continuing to pass on the Legacy and Tradition of Taekwon-Do.

TAEKWON-DO. . . . . . . . . . A way of life. What exactly is the meaning of Taekwon-Do?
To put it simply Taekwon-Do is a version of unarmed combat designed for the purpose of self defense. It is more that just that, however.
It is the scientific use of the body in the method of self defense; a body that has gained the ultimate use of its facilities through intensive physical and mental training.
It is a martial art that has no equal in either power or technique. Though it is a martial art, its discipline, technique and mental training are the mortar for building a strong sense of justice, fortitude, humility and resolve. It is this mental conditioning that separates the true practitioner from the sensationalist, content with mastering only the fighting aspects of the art.
This is one of the reasons that Taekwon-Do is called the art of self defense. It also implies a way of thinking and life, particularly in instilling a concept and spirit of strict self-imposed discipline and an ideal of nobel moral rearmament.
Taekwon-Do definitely enables the weak to possess a fine weapon together with a confidence to defend him or herself and defeat the opponent as well.
Of course, wrongly applied, Taekwon-Do can be a lethal weapon. Therefore, mental training must always be stressed to prevent student from misusing it.

Monday and Tuesday night for classes we will be working on our new hand techniques. Practicing these new hand techniques will help students with their new patterns and help them get ready for the next rank advancement test.
Looks like our next tournament will be on Saturday November 12, 2022 at Utah Dance Academy (up here in Ogden). Parents and students please save the date! For Green Belts and above tournament participation is a requirement for testing. Students do not have to participate in all 3 events (Patterns, Sparring, and Breaking) but it is highly encourage to compete in a 3 events. I hope you will encourage your students(s) to come out and support this event. Please come out and compete in at least on event! Once the official flyer and registration form are available I will post them on the website to download.
For the High Red Belts:
We have started the Community Service Project for Hearts Tied Together. We are tying fleece blankets. We will meet again Friday September 30, 2022 at my house around 4:30pm and work until about 8pm. Dinner will be provided. Please come and work on getting your blankets done. If you are not able to make it you can come Saturday October 8, 2022. This will be the last time we will get together as a group to complete our Community Service Hours. If students are not able to come work on it as a group they can work on their blankets at home. We would like to get this project completed at the beginning of November at the latest.
I have also given them the knowledge tests from White Belt to Red Belt. They need to complete all of these test before I will give them their Black Belt (I Dan) Knowledge Test. All of these need to be completed before they Test on Saturday December 10. Please also be working on filling out the testing paperwork (see the more tab on the website under TKD Documents). The Request for Black Belt Forms has the belt size that your students will need. We will need to know what size belt to order as it takes about 6 to 8 weeks to get the belts.
