You’ve Seen One. You’ve Seen Them All! By KwanJangNim Gregory Glover
That seems to be the consensus of what Martial Artists and sport Taekwondo practitioners are saying these days, and I don’t blame them.
I go back to a time when all styles used to compete together and did round robin training at each other’s schools.
Sure, we had friendly “My school is better than your school” exchanges, but we learned from each other, and we always respected the art.
Times have changed. Techniques and methods of teaching have changed, but customs and respect for the art should never change. We recognize that Taekwondo is taught under several schools known as Kwans. All legitimate Kwans of Taekwondo are headquartered in the Republic of Korea (ROK). In the ROK, our organization is a branch member of the highly prestigious Korean Martial Arts Instructors Association. We have formed a strong alliance with the (KMAIA) to establish a link to Taekwondo’s authentic Korean lineage and to ensure the continued practice of Taekwondo as a traditional Korean military art.
I personally invite you to become a part of our family. For those of you that believe in our cause, we offer:
1. Training with Korea’s highest ranking Grand Masters at clinics and seminars.
2. Discounts on special events and training merchandise.
3. Monthly Social Media Posts Images for your school
4. Opportunity for advancement and much more.
By now you must be asking, Who are we? Well, it’s no secret. We are the U.S. National Taekwondo Association, and we are looking for serious, dedicated traditional instructors and practitioners to take part in building the best Taekwondo organization in the U.S. For additional information please call or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “USNTA” in the subject line.
