Taekwondo philosophy encompasses a set of principles and values that guide practitioners in their training and daily life. Some key aspects of Taekwondo philosophy include:

1. Courtesy (Ye Ui): Taekwondo emphasizes respect and manners towards oneself and others. Practitioners are taught to be polite and considerate, showing respect to their instructors, fellow students, and opponents.

2. Integrity (Yom Chi): Taekwondo promotes honesty, moral character, and strong ethical values. Practitioners are encouraged to live with integrity, being truthful, honorable, and upright in their actions.

3. Perseverance (In Nae): Persistence and determination are central to Taekwondo philosophy. Practitioners face challenges and obstacles with a resilient mindset, never giving up and continuously striving to improve their skills and themselves.

4. Self-control (Guk Gi): Taekwondo teaches self-discipline and self-control. Practitioners learn to manage their emotions and impulses, maintaining composure even in challenging situations.

5. Indomitable spirit (Baekjul Boolgool): Taekwondo cultivates a strong and unconquerable mindset. Practitioners develop a never-give-up attitude, facing adversity with courage, determination, and a positive attitude.

6. Harmony (Hyung Saeng): Taekwondo philosophy emphasizes the balance and harmony between body, mind, and spirit. It encourages practitioners to strive for inner peace, self-awareness, and a harmonious existence with others.

These philosophical principles are infused into the training and practice of Taekwondo, aiming to develop well-rounded individuals who not only possess physical strength and skill but also exhibit positive character traits both on and off the training mat.

 The Taekwondo Black Belt is the highest level of achievement in Taekwondo. It signifies the mastery of the techniques, skills, knowledge, and principles of the martial art. To earn a black belt, students undergo years of training, improvement, and dedication. The black belt represents a level of proficiency and expertise, as well as a commitment to personal growth, discipline, and leadership within the Taekwondo community.

Over the weekend, Joshua Aguirre, a resident of Lebanon, accomplished a remarkable feat by becoming the world's youngest 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo. Under the guidance of Master Agustin Cuascut and Master Suji Kang, Aguirre shattered the previous record held by Tarushi Gaur from India. Gaur had achieved the title at the tender age of 8 in November 2018, according to the renowned High Range book of World Records.

Not only did Aguirre attain this impressive milestone, but he has also been consistently excelling in various Taekwondo competitions. Recently, he clinched a gold and a silver medal at the prestigious Toronto Open Taekwondo Championships. This is just a glimpse of the numerous accolades that Aguirre has secured on the national and international circuit throughout the past year.
