Grand Master David Thiele opened Jong Park Institute in 1972. After years of training boxing and earning a black belt in Karate, his interest in the Martial Arts became his life. Witnessing TaeKwon-Do's prowess from Korean Special Forces during the Vietnam war, TaeKwon-Do became his main focus upon returning home. 45 years later, Grand Master Thiele is still leading his school, inspiring minds and keeping TaeKwon-Do Black Belt quality at its very highest.
"At the core of our school is TaeKwon-Do, The foundation of which is the self defense value. TaeKwon-Do is not a sport, an activity or for fighting. Being dynamic in theory and movement. Progressive and flexible as a system. Jong Park offers a unique and complete system intended to improve all parts of life. Self Defense, Situational Awareness, fitness, self control and the ability to focus and center yourself. TaeKwon-Do teaches us how to handle many situations. Whether your child needs a physical activity that is unmatched as a character building tool, or you need a way to unwind and center yourself after a long day. TaeKwon-Do gives us the tools to handle everything and at our very best and we provide an awesome environment to grow in. The emphasis of our program is on establishing self discipline, and self motivation in our students. It is this structure of self development that is built directly into our system of instruction. We encourage, motivate and lead our students to strive for peak performance."
