World Champion
Taekwondo Southbury

Our Mission

Through Taekwondo training, we strive to develop the full potential in our students, enabling them to embrace the challenges of life more successfully, while setting the highest standard of excellence. World Champion Taekwondo will provide unparalleled Taekwondo martial arts training throughout Connecticut and all 50 States of the United States of America with top world champion Korean Masters Instructors with a minimum of 4th Degree Black Belt.

All the Master Instructors will be chosen and trained by Grand Master Park before establishing their own schools. This will be done while maintaining the main Taekwondo training focus: respect, discipline, confidence, and self-confidence. WCT students will learn more than basic techniques of self-defense, they will learn the five benefits of Taekwondo which are the cornerstones of the philosophy that embody the art: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and determination. WCT Masters will develop in every student a strong sense of self-confidence while maintaining the Taekwondo training focus: respect and discipline.

Guiding Principles

World Champion Taekwondo Southbury’s teaching methods are guided by a common set of values which are very similar to the Boy-Girl Scouts of America. We believe that training in Taekwondo is an opportunity to teach important values which will not only help our students achieve higher ranks in Taekwondo, but also will stay with them and help them their entire life. God gave us one body, one mind, and one spirit; it is our job to take care of and develop all three.

CRISP Determination

  • Courtesy

    Courtesy is also a way of life. Displaying courteous polite behavior tells people a lot about us.
  • Respect

    Respect yourself and everyone. We should always show respect to persons in authority and people who are older than us.
  • Integrity

    Integrity is a steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code. It is defined as a "strict adherence to a standard of value or conduct."
  • Self-Control

    Self-Control is a dominant influence or authority over oneself.
  • Perseverance

    Perseverance is to persist in an idea, purpose, or task despite obstacles.
  • Determination

    Indomitable Spirit is incapable of being subdued or defeated, specifically spiritually. Indomitable Spirit is the combination of all the other tenants
