There is a common misconception that practicing martial arts encourages one to become more violent. This however is not true, and someone who practices martial arts is more likely to become more peaceful.  

At Achieve Martial Arts, we believe in the Korean education motto of “Hong Ik In Gahn”. This translates to “To broadly benefit humankind”. Beyond physical training, Taekwondo is a lifestyle and state of mind where the objective is not only self-defense but to help create a peaceful world. Here we shift the paradigm that says martial art is “the art of war” and we get to understand it as “the art of peace”.
