Taekwondo is different for each person, for some people it’s a means of self-defense, while others it is nothing more than an exercise to stay in shape and lose weight. Taekwondo can be an exciting sport or even a way of life. At Dublin Elite Taekwondo, we believe it can be all that and more. We not only teach Taekwondo as a very efficient means of protecting yourself and loved ones but as a way to put discipline and focus into your life.
Our students learn how to be patient, disciplined, respectful and confident members of society. We expect each of our students to be examples in their communities. We teach our young students to value and respect their parents, elders, teachers and those in authority. They are expected to take their education seriously and get good grades. Our students of all ages are expected to be good, honest people treating everyone with respect and courtesy. With the skills and power learned in Taekwondo comes the responsibility to live by this creed.
