HWA RANG KWAN

Hwa Rang Kwan

YELLOW BELT: 8th GUP

The underlying concept of Tae is external gentleness belying internal strength, often characterized by the maxim of the iron fist in the velvet glove. As our confidence and power increase, we paradoxically become more calm, gentle and reasonable.

Strength of mind lies behind the core Taekwondo tenet of indomitable spirit.
