Tae Kwon Do

Here at Pil-Sung we train in a combination of the ITF (International Tae Kwon Do Federation) and WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) systems. The curriculum consists of a balance between traditional training aspects and philosophies with modern day evolutions in the style and physical fitness. Tae Kwon Do at Pil-Sung is as much about self discipline, self discovery, and spirituality as it is about physical fitness and self defense. Pil-Sung teaches Tae Kwon Do not as a hobby or an activity but with the goals of encouraging its practitioners to become true martial artists through life style changes and lifelong commitment.

Tae Kwon Do Practice Disciplines


A Poomse (Form) is a systematic, prearranged sequence of martial techniques that is performed either with or without the use of a weapon. In traditional dojang (training hall) Poomse are used primarily as a form of interval training that is useful in developing proper kinetics and mental and physical fortitude. There are several different sets of Tae Kwon Do and Korean forms in use today. At Pil-Sung you will learn both the World Taekwondo Federation’s and International Taekwondo Federation’s forms.


Sparring at Pil-Sung involves two different types, or Taekwondo federations. Sparring with the World Taekwondo Federation rules the practitioners will execute more kicking techniques, whereas the International Taekwondo Federation encourages the use of both hands and feet.

Self Defense

Safe and proven effective responses to any type of attack possible are taught and the student must become proficient at responding to a variety of attacks, and applying the most simple, direct, and effective combination of techniques at the right moment. That is the combat skill of harmony between mind, body and spirit to which any Martial Artist must aspire.
