We practice Chung Do Kwan style (which
translates into "blue wave") of Tae Kwon Do which is rooted in older
Korean martial arts. Tae Kwon Do basically means "The way of the
hand and foot". The style emphasizes strong, quick techniques such
as blocks, punches, and kicks to disable an opponent. No weapons are
used. Being partially influenced by the tiger, it is a strong, fast,
and powerful martial art.
The North Carolina Chapter is part of
the USA Tae Kwon Do Masters
Association, led by Master Jack Emmel in SC, Master Ron Geoffrion in NM,
Master Jim Cahill in NY and Master Ralph Rubino in TX.
We are part of the Southeast Division (North Carolina, South
Carolina, and Georgia), overseen by Master Emmel, 7th degree black
belt, who instructs in Isle of Palms near Charleston, SC.
David Robinette, 5th degree black belt, located in Charlotte, NC,
teaches in Concord which is near the Charlotte area. Phil West, 2nd
degree black belt, is the senior instructor for the Raleigh area.
