As a way of life, Tae Kwon-Do is based on the ethical and moral standards by which we can live together in harmony. We seek to eliminate violence by deterring the strong from oppressing the weak through developing a power that must be based on humanity, justice, morality, wisdom and faith, thus helping to build a better and more peaceful world.

Grandmaster Joseph Philip, 9th Dan
