Our Learning Objectives Are Student-Centered

Beginner Level

All LeeHan programs begin with a goal.  This goal is broken down into specific goals and learning objectives, which are concise statements about what students will be able to do when they complete instruction on each level. 

Training in Korean Martial Arts Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do can also help prevent bullying, abduction, and obesity in children.  Some additional benefits that Students and Parents can expect from LeeHan training program are as follows:

Character Education - Practitioners are expected to show respect for their country, their school, their instructors, their fellow students, their parents, and even their opponents.  Practitioners show respect by bowing and in their manner of speech and address.  Practitioners should never argue.  They should not argue with their instructor during class.  They should not argue with fellow students or with their teacher nor parents.  Honor, discipline, self-respect, and respect for others are Hallmarks of these teachings.

Fitness - The principles of the techniques are based on the design of the human body.  For power the body develops the larger powerful muscles of the torso.  The speed of the techniques comes from the fast agile muscles of the arms and legs.  As students’ progress in Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do they learn to coordinate speed, power and develop a concentration to focus all of their body’s strength into a small hard striking surface like the edge of the hand or the heel of a foot.  Physical training and exercise is intense and develops these muscle groups.

Self-defense - When the speed and power developed through Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do is used in a self-defense situation against the vulnerable parts of an attacker’s body, the results can be incredible.  They teach a woman to emphasize many of her natural physical strengths such as power in the legs, while teaching her a method of self-defense efficient against a much larger opponent.  Knowing they can defend themselves the students’ confidence will grow and confidence alone is usually enough to deter potential attackers.

Self-confidence - This does not come naturally for many people but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time.  Through Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do as students accomplish new goals, their confidence levels increase.  Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do instill a sense of discipline, focus, and self-confidence that can carry into all aspects of life.

Intermediate Level

Intermediate Level Students will train and study in the environment of all ancient cultures such as tolerance, non-violence, respect for my peers dedication to duty and honor to my superiors. 

Korean Martial Arts puts premium on “Yea”, which means courtesy, Chinese Martial Arts puts premium on “Mu”, which means the beauty of the movements, and Japanese Martial Arts puts premium on “Do”, which means the way.   Korean Martial Arts is the action philosophy to reach the higher level of the mental discipline through the body (physical strength) and the mind (mental strength) training.  Martial Arts 
believe that the body and the mind are one, martial artists must learn how to control the body to complete martial arts.

“Evidence of the effectiveness of martial arts in producing affective, cognitive and behavioral benefits has come from a number of studies.  Improvements in self-esteem (Fuller, 1988), a more positive response to physical challenge (Richard and Rehberg, 1986; Trulson, 1986), greater autonomy (Duthie, 1978), emotional stability and assertiveness (Konzak and Boudreau, 1984) and reductions in anxiety and depression (Cai, 2000) have all been associated with martial arts training”(Contemporary Psychotherapy, 2008, para. 3)".

Advanced Level

From now on Advanced Level Students will prepare their first degree of martial arts Taekwondo or Hapkido black belt test and it will provide the Major Internationally Recognized Certificate. 

For instance, The Kukkiwon is the educational branch of WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) and tests and certifies its members at various levels of achievement.  The WTF is the only organization in the world that is recognized internationally as setting the standard for Taekwondo and regulating the sport of Taekwondo.  The WTF is the only organization to meet the higher standards of achievement promulgated by the International Olympic Committee (“IOC”).  No other association meets this standard.  After intensive study, passing rigorous written exams (mental discipline, culture, and action philosophy) and physical exams.  The students are able to participate in the Belt Advancement Test to achieve certain proficiencies before advancing up the ranks of the other belt colors—white, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, high brown, red, high red, deputy, and finally black.  The black belt for Martial Arts experts includes Dan (degree) grading of 1 through 9.  This grading has specific requirements in terms of practice time, age, and complete curriculums as well as the successful completion of the belt advancement tests for each level.  In addition, the art of Martial Arts is structured such that a Martial Artist who advances through the belt colors is rigorously trained both in the art itself and also in the art of teaching.  In fact, a black belt holder must be qualified as an instructor and highly skilled in imparting this knowledge to students through a structured curriculum and testing methods. 

LeeHan Students are qualified to obtain their first and/or higher degree of the Black Belt and the certificate recognized by the World Governing Bodies have the value at full International Olympic level and world class level.
