WHY PARK’S TAEKWONDO FEDERATION EXIST
Our mission statement is to better our community through the art and science of Taekwondo. We strive to instill the black belt creed: courtesy, modesty, integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit. We work to give our students a sense of accomplishment of a black belt and to exceed their own potential. We are creating leaders to better our future.
We are continuing the rich legacy the late Grand Master Jung Soo Park began over 50 years ago.
Courtesy is about being polite and showing respect to yourself and to others. We teach courtesy through many actions through the dojang, such as bowing to instructors, bowing to those you are sparring with, and listening quietly through instruction. We encourage this courtesy outside the dojang too, taking it out into daily life to show the same politeness and respect to others, such as teachers, parents, and friends.
Modesty, to us, is about humility. One must have confidence in their abilities, and know what they are good at, but it is important not to be arrogant about it. We want our students to have humility and modesty in their lives. They should know that they are good, but not feel like they are above others. They should respect everyone, and part of showing that respect is to be modest in front of others
Our long, rich history begins in South Korea, where Grand Master Jung Soo Park grew up and studied. He studied under multiple types of “Kwans,” which are different types of traditions, not training in just one style. He had the honor of studying under the late General Choi, a man who became the President of the International Taekwondo Federation. After serving in the navy, he made the trip by himself to the United States in hopes of opening his own Taekwondo school.
The Park family struggled when they first arrived, being in a new land with a new language. They lived in the taekwondo school to make ends meet and lived without many comforts. The school and Grand Master Park grew their reputation and eventually moved to south Florida. This is where they established Park’s Taekwondo Federation, and eventually developed the World Martial Arts Research Federation. They developed a specific and detailed curriculum for their schools and to bring traditional and modern Taekwondo together.
Our friends referred us to this program and my kids love it! We had signed up for other martial arts programs in the area but this is the best by far. My 6 year old is doing a lot better with his focus and very attentive. My 9 year old absolutely loves it. It brings out the competitive spirit in him. We also love the Day camp and aftercare program! They pick them right after school at 2pm. So convenient for busy working moms and dads.
Like many people who start with TKD at a young age, I took a "break" after getting my black belt. A 20 year break. This year, I rekindled my love for this sport when I enrolled at Parks. This time around, I am practicing with my son. Grand Master Parks is right - it is kind of like riding a bike. What is even better than getting back into shape is that I get to share an activity with my son that I have loved since I was his age. Gabe is so excited for TKD and the disciplinary benefits are starting to sink in. Thank you for giving me the chance to share this with my son the way I used to share it with my own father.
Always take my brother here and he’s learning so much, plus it’s a great way for him to stay active. The instructors are super friendly and you can tell they really love/ are passionate about what they do. Def recommend!
My son has been attending Parks Tae Kwondo for over 2 years and he truly loves it! He is learning a lot about building strength, confidence and security. The Masters and instructors are amazing.
Highly recommend this place.
We moved from Wisconsin to Boca about a year and half ago. My son Mikaeel was already doing Taekwondo in Wisconsin. He was able to continue at Park's from same belt rank. After a few months at Park's, he also decided to join the Elite team. Today it was my honor and privilege to see my 7 year old son getting his Sr Red Belt. This weekend was a great experience for us, and a very well organized event for Black Belt testing hosted by Grandmaster Park and his instructors. Best part was the belt ceremony, where Grandmaster honored Moms and had them give the certificates and belts to the kids.
Mikaeel's hard work, dedication, perseverance is a true testament of his instructors and masters. Looking forward to many more testings to come as he continues on his journey of becoming a Black Belt.
My mom signed my son up for classes mid September. It started as an investment to help build my son's confidence and disicpline. Besides the ethics side he loved it! He even more enjoyed having an uniform becoming a member. It has been a challenging experience but Parks is a phenominal individual and has made the experience much smoother for him and myself. It was very new for me as well. It's going on 8 months and he is now in red uniform and wears a yellow belt. He has equipment and weapons they utilize and learn in class. This step I can tell is a huge challenge for him. Remembering moves and steps, I am very excited to see him transition. We are from California so this experience is super awesome knowing back home we are limited to these type of sports and activities. I'm proud to be apart of the Park' s Taekwondo Family ��
Parks Taekwondo has only been a positive experience for my son. He has always been a good kid, but they have taught him not only self defense.... but self-confidence, respect and he's more outgoing. The instructors and masters are excellent! I love this place and highly recommend it.
Parks Taekwondo 🥋 is like home, my son has been with them for 7 years and I just signed him up to the life program and added my younger son as well we couldn’t be happier. I totally recommend the program it impacts the lives of many people in many different ways.
My daughter Anika van Rooyen started with Parks in her kindergarten year as a very very shy girl that barely said anything. She enjoyed it so much and came out of her shell so much that she decided to work toward her black belt, and received her 1st degree black belt this past December 2016. She is also a Life member because her next goal is to be an instructor too. The instructors and Masters are amazing and motivate the kids constantly. I definately recommend Parks Taekwando.
The absolute best! Super clean! Fun place for both kids and parents ! The instructors there are super patient, friendly, and eager to show their passion and knowledge with the kids and parents in reference to taekwondo. Absolutely love this place! Can't wait till my youngest is old enough to join his brother !!!
We started with Parks 23 years ago with our son. It's was great then & even greater now. The Parks family are warm, caring & we know that are 8 year old daughter will thrive. Since she has been there, her self-confidence has risen. After she being bullied in school, & Parks knowledge of this, we know she will stand strong with confidence thank to Grandmaster Park & his instructors
Grand Master Park and his staff are top notch. The school provides some of the best staff around who build confidence in their/our kids, teach the students the meaning of respect through structured training. Our daughter trained at Parks Tae Kwon Do for years and that great experience will support her endeavors. Thanks Grand Master Park and staff!
Integrity is sticking to your values and doing the right thing. Integrity is shown through honesty, sincerity, and loyalty, not only to others but to yourself as well. It is important to live with integrity not just in practicing martial arts, but in life, and we work hard to instill this tenet into our students. They learn that through integrity, they can feel good about themselves and their actions.
Perseverance is the persistence and dedication to keep working and practicing even when things seem difficult. Nothing worthwhile comes easily and you have to work hard in order to reach your goals. We help students build goals slowly and teach them that through perseverance, they can achieve anything they set their mind to.
