A Chat with Hong’s USA Taekwondo, Habgido, Gumdo, Inc.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Korean Grandmaster Soon Pil Hong 9th Deg Black Belt is the only one in the Michiana area to hold the Grandmaster rank in all three different Korean Martial Arts: Taekwondo, Habgido, & Gumdo. He is also an International Referee & Coach in all three of the martial arts listed above.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
We encourage our students to do their best when they practice martial arts in class. However, we do not compare one student to another. We only want our students to show their “Heart” and follow the Five Tenets of Taekwondo: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, & Indomitable Spirit
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Grandmaster Hong is still teaching the traditional, authentic Korean Martial Arts of Taekwondo, Habgido, and Gumdo after all of these years for two reasons: his love of the Korean Martial Arts and his wish to pass them on to future generations of martial artists.
What do you love most about your job?
“I just want you to enjoy what you learn during Taekwondo, Habgido, or Gumdo classes. If you want to become a champion and compete nationally and internationally, I can help you reach that goal. My main concern is that you improve your life and every aspect of it.” Grand Master Hong 9th Dan/Deg.
