Acronym(s): UNI TKD
Organization Type(s): Ethnic & Cultural Sports & Recreation

Description: Founded in 1969, the UNI Tae Kwon-Do Club is UNI's oldest active Sport Club and is the oldest collegiate Traditional Tae Kwon-Do program in the United States. The 2,500 year old Korean art, Chung do Kwan Tae Kwon-Do, is based on the values of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit. Not only is Tae Kwon-Do a valid means of self-defense, but it also increases coordination, sharpens alertness, strengthens the body, and develops respect for the self and others. The feeling of accomplishment gained by the student helps develop self-confidence which is carried over into everyday life. Tae Kwon-Do can help the shy become more confident and outgoing and can help curb hostility through its emphasis on respect and discipline. We are honored to have as our Instructor, Jr. Grand Master Joseph Philip. In 2010, he became the first American promoted to 8th Dan (8th Degree Black Belt).
