A Synthesis of Personal Teaching Philosophy Guides for Improved Taekwondo Pedagogical Practices
John A. Johnson (Kyung Hee University)
This article introduces the practice of composing personal teaching philosophies (PTP) to Taekwondo (TKD) instruction in order to help raise TKD education standards to the level of professional educators. To date, little research on pedagogical methods and practices in TKD has been conducted, so this article contributes to the growing field of TKD pedagogy. We present a guide for writing a TKD personal teaching philosophy (TPTP) for all TKD instructors regardless of their knowledge of pedagogical practices or purpose for teaching. This research is supported by current TKD instruction material and general pedagogical training theories. By elucidating a teaching philosophy, instructors should make more appropriate decisions to help students toward their educational goals. The results of this study indicate TPTP may not only strengthen instructors’ abilities to teach but possibly improve every level of TKD from student to organization. TPTP may be applicable to new and experienced instructors. TPTP should therefore improve TKD instruction, but only if organizations require them for instructor licensure.
