REGIONAL MEETS


A small selection of the 200+ medals and trophies Jung Kwon students have brought home in the past couple of years, along with some action shots!  Most of these meets have been within an easy day trip distance for families to enjoy, but some of our students have traveled as far as Macon, Ga., for small and mid-level competitions. Our staff always provides backup! Every time a student competes (even if there's only one) at least one Black Belt staff member travels with them, to ensure they have fun, and get the most out of their experience. This support is provided to all our members, at no charge!

PLEASE NOTE:


As you can see from the galleries on this page, our students do very well at competition events!


But, we are not a "Competition School"!  


Lots of our students never compete; and most of the teams we send to events only number 3 - 5 people! In some cases, only 1 or 2 persons in our entire school have exhibited any desire to go to any particular event, and we never force anyone to compete. If you like competing, we'll give you all the help you need. If you don't - we won't make you!


That being said; in the past 4 years, our students have taken 35 International, National and State titles! And over the past 5 years they've won over 200 regional and local trophies and medals. We say "over 200", because we've actually lost count! At many events, it is not unusual for our school to sweep entire brackets, taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. So, if we're not all that big into competition events, you would probably ask 'why', or 'how', right?   


It's because of our traditional attention to the finer details of our art.


It turns out that the very things that make you a truly good martial artist.. are also the things that help you win competitions! So while very commercialized 'tournament schools' train almost exclusively for events, and drop all their technical training and self defense training... we don't. Our goal is to see that you get more, learn more, and feel more capable - while having a lot of fun, making new friends and saving a ton of money!


So, rest assured, if you really want to compete and challenge yourself, this is the place to be! And... if you're more into getting physically fit, and learning some readily usable self defense techniques, this is STILL the place to be!
