The 22nd LHP Team Champs is Coming

Mark your calendars for the 22nd Lee H. Park Team Champs!

A martial arts team competing in tournament in Denver, CO.

Our annual LEE H. PARK TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS will take place January 22 - 23, from the Campus location of each of our students.

That's right!  Because of the recent pandemic, we will hold our very first ever LHP Team Champs where the competitors go to their CTI Campus and compete from that location!  Our competitors will have the unique opportunity to perform from their "home turf" - this will bring some interesting twists into this year's championships.

This is our 12th CTI Hanmadang  (where students and instructors take part in team competitions in poomse, one-step sparring, creative basics, target kicking and more!) and will show one way how Moo Sul Kwan martial artists keep the traditions of their art alive, while adapting and progressing with modern times.

Why Choose the CTI

 By Caleb Feagans, CTI Instructor

Like my own personal experience, parents and families often begin their search for martial arts schools for their kids or themselves by searching the web for ‘karate schools’. When my family and I first started to search for karate schools near us, none really stood out and impressed us; however, we did find the Colorado Taekwondo Institute (CTI), which has continued to impress us for 14 years and counting.  But why should you consider Taekwondo? And why should you consider the Colorado Taekwondo Institute over other Taekwondo schools? CTI not only teaches students the art of Taekwondo but the rich history of Korea. Not only will you be learning valuable self-defense techniques and sparring, but you see through demonstration how integrity, respect, courtesy for others, and self-control skills reinforce a well-rounded martial arts student and overall better person.

Students doing a side kick at martial arts classes at Colorado Taekwondo Institute
When my family and I started, we had no idea what Taekwondo was or what the difference was between Karate and Kung-Fu or why I should ever try it over the other two martial arts, but I soon learned why Taekwondo, especially at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute is so special. Although Karate and Kung Fu are similar to Taekwondo, the Korean martial art focuses more on kicking and leg techniques than the other two martial arts which emphasize the use of hand techniques.  After all, the definition of Taekwondo is the Korean art of smashing with the bare feet and hands. Taekwondo still utilizes several hand techniques but the hands are less emphasized in the Taekwondo basics and sparring. 

The classes offered at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute are taught by instructors with years of experience and training.  There are classes from ages 2 and up at a variety of locations around the state of Colorado and the CTI caters to all ages when teaching and there is something that all ages groups can learn by participating in CTI classes. Tiger classes (ages 2-4) focus on basic listening and motor skills and is a great release of energy. The junior classes (ages 5-11) are a great way for kids to start exercising regularly and help boost their confidence as they remain healthy! Teen (ages 12-15) and adults (ages 16 and up) begin a goal-oriented program that helps them learn the basics of self-defense and fitness. The CTI’s classes are structured the same regardless of what campus students attend classes and most other schools do not have a “backbone” basics routine quite like the Colorado Taekwondo Institute. 

The CTI was founded in 1983, and they continue to teach and accept new students every day for the past 37 years and there is no sign of stopping anytime soon.  So the next time you consider searching for any Karate schools near your location, consider stopping in at the CTI and see how Taekwondo can help you not only get in shape and learn self-defense, but be a better student at school, a better employee, and a better person.

Moo Sul Kwan Martial Arts: Experiences of the New Guy

By Brian O'Reilly

I am new to Moo Sul Kwan martial arts. I’m 50 years old; but I’m not old! Thanks in large part to Moo Sul Kwan Martial Arts!

Young lady doing a side kick outside in a martial arts class
I have been an athlete for nearly all of my life and involved in a wide range of organized sports, exercise and recreational activities. Participating in sports as a youth is very different than participating as an adult. When you are young, there is so much to learn about your body, your competitive spirit, how to train, and how to interact with opponents, teammates, referees and coaches. I grew up around athletics as my dad was a high school coach for 40 years. I asked my dad at an early age why sports are important for a student athlete who will never be good enough to “go pro” and make a career as a professional athlete. His answer pointed out the obvious physical and mental benefits of exercise for people of all ages. He also stressed the equally important personal and social lessons of learning a skill, consistent hard work, commitment, loyalty, positive interaction with teammates/authority figures, sportsmanship and how to navigate through successes and failures. He pointed out that all of these lessons are available through athletics, especially in a solid program lead by a great coach. He stressed that these are life-lessons and should transfer into adulthood to create the leaders of tomorrow. Adults who never learn these life-lessons struggle personally, professionally and can have a negative impact on society as a whole. Fortunately I have been surrounded by great teachers, coaches, bosses and mentors.  As an adult the life-lessons of athletics continue to ring true and help me grow, physically, mentally and spiritually as a well-rounded person. Moo Sul Kwan martial arts is now my sport of choice as a 50 year old man.

Moderation was never really my thing. My body has paid the price over the years for extreme living. Broken bones are par for the course in any contact sport; but years of heavy weight-lifting and CrossFit programs resulted in various surgeries which eventually slowed me down as an adult. I was unhappy during the recovery/healing times, craved physical activity, and competition. Yet, I was also worried that I would be back under the knife again if I kept up the same extreme and active pace. I had always been fascinated with martial arts classes from afar, so I thought I would give it a try.  There were so many options available it was difficult to choose; but after some in-depth research I joined The Colorado Taekwondo Institute and the study of Moo Sul Kwan martial arts. I was very fortunate to have landed where I did!

Moo Sul Kwan martial arts at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute (CTI) was exactly what I needed.  The Colorado Taekwondo Institute was founded by Grandmaster James M. Sautel, 8th Dan Black Belt, in 1983 and there are now several locations throughout the Colorado. CTI works in association with the Moo Sul Kwan martial arts Institute and the American Martial Arts Sports and Education Association.  Moo Sul Kwan martial arts was brought to the United States by Great Grandmaster Lee H. Park in 1969 and serves as the model for training at all Colorado Taekwondo Institute locations.  The CTI mission statement is “To encourage and develop world-class leaders through educational excellence and Moo Sul Kwan martial arts traditions”.  

For the past year and a half, my personal experience with CTI and Moo Sul Kwan martial arts classes training has been in line with the CTI Mission Statement and the life-lessons I have been taught growing up.  The aims of Moo Sul Kwan martial arts, the tenets of Taekwondo and the philosophy, goals and operation of the Colorado Taekwondo Institute complement my lifestyle, goals, ethics, exercise and competitive needs. I enjoy the ability to challenge my body in new ways, and for many years to come, which will lead to healthier longevity without the high-risk of injury.  I also enjoy the mental and emotional challenges related to learning a new discipline and starting out a program as a rookie.  I’m the new old guy!  Starting Moo Sul Kwan martial arts classes as an adult is new experience that teaches humility, patience and perseverance.  I believe that a little suffering in any forum is the requirement for success.  As a 50 year old, that suffering can be more apparent than when you’re an 18 years old athlete!  But that challenge to stay involved, active and fight through the aches and pains has its rewards.  

The rewarding and positive experience of Moo Sul Kwan martial arts at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute is more than physical.  The bonding and team support with fellow students, support by upper-belt students and Black Belt instructors is a mental and emotional reward by itself.  Most prominent though is the inspirational guidance, instruction and care provided by Grandmaster Sautel.  I am fortunate to have found Moo Sul Kwan martial arts, which provides comprehensive Psychomotor Domain, Affective Domain and Cognitive Domain training, knowledge and self-defense skills. I am fortunate to have found The Colorado Taekwondo Institute, which honors the traditions of Moo Sul Kwan martial arts while providing a positive and exciting modern-day forum for training, learning and competition.  I am very fortunate to be surrounded by supportive CTI Students and Instructors…and I cannot say enough about how lucky I am to study under CTI founder Grandmaster Sautel.  I’ve added him to my very short, selective and influential list of heroes. In talking to fellow students I know that I’m not alone as he inspires so many others at CTI.  I am always happy to have the opportunity to share my positive experience with others, especially those with similar backgrounds and needs.  CTI and Moo Sul Kwan martial arts have provided everything I was looking for and I’m excited to continue my training for many years to come.

Taekwondo for Toddlers!

Taekwondo for toddlers as a little girl gets ready to perform at a martial arts tournament

Martial arts is the perfect sport for kids, providing a valuable, positive outlet for their energetic selves.  When looking for taekwondo or karate classes for toddlers, it's important to find a quality program that will give the most to your children. That's why we highly recommend Taekwondo for toddlers at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute. 

Kids love working out with Taekwondo black belt instructors and fellow students in great martial arts classrooms with padded floors and master instructors.  All ages of kids can join us at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute!  No matter when a child starts Taekwondo, they can experience the benefits of Taekwondo. In fact, some black belts of today started when they were as young as three years old. It's great to think at one point there was a parent like you looking for karate classes for 3 year olds, and years later they are the proud parent of a Moo Sul Kwan black belt. No matter what age a kid is, they can enjoy Taekwondo at CTI, where classes are offered throughout the week for all ages.

Taekwondo is a great source of exercise for kids. Classes last 30 minutes for “tigers” (the youngest students) and an hour for older kids.  In both, kids get to exercise and have fun, both in a great Taekwondo environment.  Not only do kids have a chance to exercise in CTI Taekwondo classes, but they also improve their mind-body coordination and even learn about the science behind how the body works and how that affects Taekwondo moves.  There are workouts in Taekwondo classes at CTI for all parts of the body.

The benefits of CTI Taekwondo for kids are enormous. Besides being a good outlet for energy, Taekwondo classes also provide mental exercise.  As kids learn blocks, kicks, punches, and other techniques in Taekwondo classes, they improve memory, coordination, and patience, along with other mental skills.  Taekwondo is one of the best sports that include both physical exercise and mental excellence in its training.  While kids in Taekwondo classes are physically exercising, they are also learning discipline and attention skills.  The Taekwondo teachings at CTI is meant to include both the body and mind.

Whenever kids start karate classes for toddlers, they can enjoy the fun classes, physical exercise, and learning that comes with it.  All the black belt instructors at the Colorado Taekwondo Institute have had years of Taekwondo experience and are great with kids.  No matter the age, kids who join Taekwondo fall in love with the classes, learning, exercise, and experience.  They can even become black belt instructors themselves with time and practice.  All kids (and adults) who do Taekwondo enjoy it and learn every time they step into the classroom.

Campus Spotlight: Conifer Campus

The front of the conifer taekwondo school martial arts school
If you’re looking for a Conifer martial arts school with a family friendly, disciplined, and exciting environment, look no further than the Conifer location of the Colorado Taekwondo Institute (CTI). Located conveniently on US Highway 285, this Conifer martial arts school hosts classes that teach valuable self-defense skills to students of all ages, from toddlers to teens to adults. Like karate and kung fu, taekwondo is a martial art that trains the body and mind to improve ourselves and achieve goals. 

Martial arts, unlike many other sports, is an individual sport. Practicing karate and taekwondo is self-directed and self-motivated training. Traditional taekwondo, which is taught at the CTI, is a martial art similar to karate and kung fu. As a student, we better ourselves with the self-defense and education provided by this Conifer taekwondo school. This allows us to set our own goals to accomplish with this martial arts training. For instance, a teen might be interested in the focus martial arts training provides and applying that to school. An adult may be interested in losing weight and setting a goal for getting in shape using martial arts. Even a toddler will see the benefit of setting a goal like getting their next belt and the satisfaction achieving that goal brings. 

There are choices out there for martial arts, but the CTI Conifer martial arts school is a step above the rest. At the CTI students are encouraged to do more than just exercise in their regular classes, such as monthly homework and written tests for each belt. This keeps the martial arts frame of mind present in all part of our lives, so we can achieve any goals we have. The self-confidence and self-defense taught by our outstanding group of black belt instructors will allow anyone, to become a better version of themselves. 

Conifer's main classroom has a custom-built, carpeted suspension floor, so as to reduce stress on the body when working out. The workout area is incredibly spacious, to provide each student ample room to workout. There are also spacious and comfortable viewing areas for friends and family to watch class. 

Nestled in the midst of beautiful Conifer, the Conifer taekwondo campus serves the Conifer, Aspen Park, Evergreen and Bailey communities. Nearby amenities include 3 Margaritas, Liks Ice Cream and Staples. 

Come join us today at the Conifer campus of the Colorado Taekwondo Institute. We’re here to help you be a better you and reach your goals.
