About Pak’s Academy Prime Taekwondo – Master Hwang
At Pak’s Academy Prime Taekwondo & Martial Arts, we incorporate scientific evidence and knowledge obtained at Rockhurst University and Yong-In University to teach our students the original philosophy of Korean Taekwondo as well as modernized Taekwondo techniques. Master Hwang’s current medical experience in the field of physical therapist and past experience as a competitor in Korean National, International, and Korean Army Taekwondo Championships (in both sparring and forms) as well as being a Captain of the Korean Tigers International Taekwondo Demonstration Team help immensely in teaching our students to be elite Martial artists.
The mission of our Pak’s Academy Prime Taekwondo is to improve not only students’ physical strength, but also their minds through a fun, but disciplined curriculum. Our curriculum is specifically designed to enhance students’ fitness, self-defense skills, respect for both self and others, courtesy, self-confidence and control, social behaviours, social skills, and to teach the leadership skills that will be fundamentally important in life.
