TAEKWONDO TRAINING IN KOREA "Land of the Morning Calm"

Why visit Korea to train in taekwondo when there are so many great masters here in America? Why visit France to sample great wine? Why visit the Holy Land to explore Christianity and Judaism? Why travel to Tibet to climb majestic mountains? Simply put, visiting these destinations allows the traveler to experience the object of their interest at its root. Taekwondo is a creation of Korea. Absorbing the techniques of the traditional Korean martial art, in conjunction with its cultural surroundings, adds color and meaning to the art. Visiting Korea promotes an organic geographical and chronological connection with Taekwondo's past. Training with the originators of taekwondo in their native land can change the way the practitioner views the martial arts forever. If you have ever dreamt of visiting the homeland of taekwondo, now is the time to do so. Join Master Doug Cook, Grandmaster Richard Chun and a select group of students on an unforgettable journey to the "land of the morning calm". Train at world-famous dojangs and temples located high in the mountains. Sample the unique culture, delicacies and native artwork of Korea. For more information, follow the "Korea Training & Cultural Tour" link on the home page of this web site for details. This will be our fifth exciting group adventure to Korea and each tour offers benefits all its own. Join us and make a dream a reality!

  1. Hi!

    I was wondering if you had trained in Korea and if so, how much were classes? I took Tae Kwon Do classes years ago and would like to get back into it as I am moving there for fifteen months. Thank you!
