In simple terms, we believe that a Martial Artist is more measured by the quality of their actions and behaviour than their ability to kick and punch. At Hills District Martial Art, we emphasise creating a great culture through Martial Arts, and we use the physical aspect of Martial Arts as a way to develop the inner self.
A Martial Artist must not only strive to develop a greater sense of self-appreciation and confidence through hard training, but should also encourage the same development in those around them. We are a family at Hills District Martial Arts and endeavour to bring out the best in each other.
Taekwondo is currently an Olympic Sport, with competitions at all levels. Despite this, first and foremost Taekwondo will always be a Martial Art. Competitors must never develop skill without the social and ethical philosophies of the Martial Art.
A Martial Art is a great alternative to more traditional sport activities such as football, soccer, netball etc. It is of course a physical activity and a great way to develop many physical attributes. We always encourage our members to consider Martial Arts as more than a sport. It is a way of life.
Learn. Sweat. Smile.
Each class should consist of some new knowledge, a good workout and most importantly enjoyment. Martial Arts is definitely a serious undertaking, however an enjoyable training session is always the most effective.
