Students at Ki Martial Arts Academy will benefit from the physical aspect of training as it promotes greater all round health, flexibility and strength. We also promote the mental training aspect of martial arts. We look to develop confident, happy and skilful martial artists and assist students in developing many life skills including confidence, respect, focus, goal setting and achieving, allowing the student to take on the world and succeed.
We at Ki Martial Arts Academy pride ourselves on the support and wealth of knowledge that we teach and provide to our students.
To get the best out of our students we encourage our students to have an open mind.
“Don’t get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water.
Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup;
you put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle;
you put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot.
Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend”.
We at Ki Martial Arts Academy believe that this explains perfectly what the mindset for a martial artist should be and this could also be applied to daily life.
Importantly, we promote an enjoyable and laid back approach, Martial arts are beautiful, with many traditional teachings and values…it becomes a way of life rather than just an activity…
As such, our student oath and the tenents of Taekwon-do are as follows:
I shall observe the Tenants of Taekwondo
I shall Respect the Instructor and seniors
I shall never misuse Taekwondo
I shall be a champion of freedom and Justice
I shall build a more peaceful world.
