Although we strive to ensure consistent training methods from all of our

The Han Moo Kwan Tae Kwon Do Club - Sunnyvale is not affiliated with, or endorsed by,
any organization or commercial enterprise. Although the art form originated
in the Han Moo Gymnasium in Seoul, Korea, any connection with that
organization was lost when their style was merged with other Taekwondo
schools as part of the unification of the kwans (schools) into the World
TaeKwonDo Federation (WTF). The Han Moo Kwan Tae Kwon Do Club -
Sunnyvale is affiliated with the Han Moo Kwan Tae Kwon Do Association.

All martial arts techniques are best learned from an instructor. There are
web sites (ours included), many books with photographs of techniques, and
many technique videos that may be purchased, but they should only be used as
a reference after learning the proper way to perform a technique from a
certified instructor. No matter how detailed the information within any
reference material, it is still just information. To practice a martial art
means to adjust your body to the art form, and adjust the art form to your
body. It means learning not only the mechanics, but the energy, focus, and
intention behind the moves. A book may give you the knowledge of a martial
art; an instructor will provide you with the experience of it.
