Earning the prestigious black belt in taekwondo requires physical strength and coordination. But rooted deeply in the practice of this martial arts style is the development of the kinds of intangible skills and character traits that equal success off the mat, as well. At Ultimate Champions Taekwondo, Copiague, Master Han and his staff are giving their students tools to better meet life’s challenges.
On the physical side, the martial arts school, located at 903 Montauk Highway, is training students as young as 3 years old in balance and motor skills while teaching focus, self-control, self-respect, respect for others and discipline. Master Han, a fifth-degree black belt who has been practicing martial arts for years, has a talent for reading personalities and understanding the individual needs of his students and how to help them reach their potential.
In addition to in-school training, students compete and participate in local demonstrations. In late-October, at the 2017 Champions Open state taekwondo tournament (one of the largest taekwondo events in NYS), they took home a collection of trophies and medals in such events as sparring, wood breaking and form that would make their community proud, and in early-October, they showed off their skills for the crowd during an appearance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn before the start of the Nets vs. Knicks basketball game.
The respect, dedication and hard work of these students, ages 3 to adult, are regularly on display at the school as they strive to achieve and be awarded their next belt. The progress from the start of the lesson to its end is nothing short of impressive.
Our students all did great and has shown excellent results. Nice Job
Let’s go team Copiague Champions TaeKwonDo!”
