CHOSUN TAEKWONDO ACADEMY HOSTS WARWICK JUNIOR POLICE ACADEMY FOR SELF-DEFENSE COURSE
July 15, 2023 (WARWICK, NY)- The Chosun Taekwondo Academy, a local martial arts school with headquarters located at 60 Galloway Road in Warwick, hosted a special self-defense course for members of the Warwick Junior Police Academy on Friday, July 14th, from 1:00 to 3:00pm. Fifteen eager teens were taught skills in avoidance as well as martial arts techniques aimed at diffusing an unprovoked attack.
Reached for comment, head instructor Grandmaster Doug Cook, stated,
“It was truly an honor to work with the Warwick Police Department for the benefit of these disciplined youngsters. This event represents a logical extension of our school’s philosophy emphasizing the self-defense aspects of taekwondo, the Korean martial art, rather than those limited to sport competition. We routinely address this component of taekwondo in our traditional curriculum and routinely offer our services, often free of charge, to local civic organizations.”
A comprehensive guide describing the various techniques taught during the seminar, were distributed to all attendees.
Grandmaster Doug Cook has been a regular contributor to Taekwondo Life Magazine over the past several years. He is an author, martial arts master, and martial arts historian.
