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 for tomorrow to better humanity.
We are continuing the rich legacy the late Grand Master Jung Soo Park began over 50 years ago.
Taekwondo is a martial arts program that everyone can benefit from, as we teach good physical fitness and to help garner a positive mental attitude. We offer these programs for all ages, so whether you are looking for adult martial arts training or martial arts classes for children, we can help you out. We work to create a balance of physical and mental conditioning to build up self esteem and respect.
We teach self defense through the arts of taekwondo and karate, giving kids and adults alike the the skills they need to build their confidence up and give them the skills they need to protect themselves and their family if it would come to that. We have three locations for learning taekwondo and karate: Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Parkland and Coconut Creek.
Character Kidz is our after school program for children in grades K-5, focusing on academics, social skills, sports, and more. We offer free pick up for several elementary schools in the Coral Springs and Coconut Creek areas. Let us take care of your kids while you finish up at work!
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.Learn More About Park's Taekwondo Federation
Park's Taekwondo Federation focuses on family martial arts. We strive to make things family oriented, including classes for families to take all together, no matter what ages. Very few other martial arts Coral Springs and martial arts Boca Raton locations can bring you this close family aspect like we can.
We specialize in our arts and have for 50 years, creating leaders and bettering our community. We are one of the few martial arts schools that gives you these incredibly diverse after school options.
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.
We started our son Vincenzo in Taekwondo as a way to burn off his extra energy. And anyone who knows him understands how much energy this little guy has. We chose Taekwondo knowing that it is much more than just a sport, with the underlying tenants of respect and perseverance; it’s a way of life.
One day Lucas Rolon, my five years old son came home after he took a couple of demo classes of Taekwondo at his aftercare school, begging us to sign him to Park's Taekwondo School. My husband and I agreed not only because he was very excited about the classes but because we were always interested about the oriental culture that promotes strong family and social values.
Zara has been a student at Park's for the last 7 years. Throughout her course of training, Zara has been motivated to become a dedicated student of Taekwondo at the direction of her instructors. The Park's team has always been there to challenge Zara and push her to do more than she ever expected she could.
Self control, easily one of the most vital tenets of Taekwondo, means to have a mastery of your body and behavior. Martial arts teaches both together, starting with the self control of the body through training and conditioning. By learning how to control movements and how much power you put into them, you will also learn how to control your reactions when emotional. Self control can lead to an easier time in school, better grades, more respect, and being able to take responsibility for our actions.
You must always strive to do your best, and stand up for what you believe in. Having an indomitable spirit means to stand by your convictions and be unbreakable against the people and things that may try to steer you away from your goals. We teach our students to put their full effort into their goals and their training and to have that spirit in the important things outside of the dojang.
