At Silent Thunder Taekwondo, you will find a splendid array
of creative, intriguing, and effective training methodologies.
But true freedom comes from discipline, so while our classes
are profoundly interesting and exciting, the underlying theme
of spiritual evolution through mind and body discipline using
martial arts is continuously present. Our curriculum consists of
 much more than acrobatic kicks and tournaments. For instance,
elements of Aikido, Jiu-jitsu, Karate, as well as weapons, are
taught in the same class. Our rank tests include not just
performance of forms, sparring, self-defense techniques,
and board-breaking, but various other challenges involving
blindfolds, tricks, and surprises to intrigue even those most
experienced in labyrinths. Adults seeking the rank of black belt
must be able to run five miles in less than 40 minutes,
do 100 push-ups, be familiar with Oriental philosophy,
be non-smokers, and be of profound moral character,
just to qualify to take the test.

THE THREE NOBLE QUALITIES
 
DIGNITY
When we obey the command of an inward
King whose throne sits in the highest
dimensions of our soul.
 
DISCIPLINE
When we consistently perform the techniques
with the highest skill level presently possible.
 
DRAGON SPIRIT
When we combine dignity and discipline
to perform the techniques with an energy
intensity level that borders on the mystical.
