BHTC teaches: The Spirit CONTROLS the Mind which CONTROLS the Body!
Tae Kwon Do consists of the three major aspects; the Spirit, the Mind, and the Body. Think about it… Can one’s mind have life without a Spirit? Can one properly control the functions of the body without a mind? Can one demonstrate an outward manifestation of the teachings of Tae Kwon Do without a body?
Spirit: the force within a person that is believed to give the body life, energy, and power.
The first Aspect of Tae Kwon Do is the Spirit. The evolution of the spiritual aspect of Tae Kwon Do is achieved before the physical and mental aspects can unfold and take root. Enlightenment comes when a person is at peace with self. An individual must become one with the tenets and teachings of Tae Kwon Do. Tae Kwon Do must be lived every day of life. The tenets of Tae Kwon Do must be applied to ones work, family and friends, and yes, even to ones enemies: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-control, and an Indomitable Spirit.
Mind: the part of a person that thinks, reasons, feels, and remembers.
The second aspect of Tae Kwon Do is the mind. To learn one must be taught. One must then apply teachings. While learning the physical techniques of Tae Kwon Do, the individual is engaged in an intense edification process. One learns anatomy, how his body functions, what enables it to generate more power, and the weak points of the body so he can both protect his vital areas, and use the opponent's weak points to defend himself. The student is learning to focus his concentration and to set and reach goals which he may have felt were far beyond his capabilities.
Body: a person's whole physical self.
The body is the third aspect of Tae Kwon Do. When one begins training, one must first learn to stretch muscles and get one’s body into physical condition to perform the movements of Tae Kwon Do. One must work on kicks, stances, blocks, hand strikes, breathing, rhythm, balance, and much more in order to properly execute the techniques. The practice of these exercises and techniques are sharpening the individual's physical condition and thus developing a strong body.
In order for an individual to develop into a complete and well-rounded person, one must cultivate each aspect of Tae Kwon Do. If only one or two of the aspects are developed, then a person, no matter how hard one trains, may never become a true Master of Art of Tae Kwon Do
