Student Success Story: From Self-Defence to Scholarships
Meet Julien He, 3rd Degree Black Belt, training in Taekwon-Do for over 12 years at Black Belt Excellence. He progressed from Little Ninja to Junior Achiever to Black Belt to Leadership Team member and now…President’s Scholarship Award Winner from the University of Ottawa (full scholarship of $30,000).
To win this prestigious scholarship:
> Applicants must be bilingual (English and French)
> have an admission average of 92% or higher (he has a 97% average) and
> demonstrate leadership qualities and a commitment to academic and extracurricular activities.

He is also a recipient of the Proud to Be Me Chris Phillips Leadership Award.

We believe that the focus, discipline, confidence, leadership, hard work ethic, and dedication he developed by training and teaching in martial arts (as well as killer letter of reference I wrote for him) contributed to his success.

“Taekwon-Do has been a very large part of my life and has contributed a lot to who I am today. Thanks to Master Phil, I have been given many opportunities to develop as a more respectful individual, a better student, and a more confident leader. I would also like to thank all my other instructors who guided me, the new friends that I made, and the students that I taught for making Black Belt Excellence such an amazing place! I cherish all the memories I have made, and I look forward to training once more when I return! – Mr. Julien He

Adult Program – Live Life to the Fullest!


“My wife and I are very happy to be part of your Dojang. It is one of the best things we’ve done for ourselves. We look forward to class and we feel the difference it makes to mind, body and spirit.

6 Benefits of Taekwon-Do for Women – By Lisa Yang

1. Physical Fitness: Taekwon-Do improves physical fitness, balance, and strengthens the core through kicking drills, which tune the hip, abdominal, and pelvic muscles.

2. Artistic Expression: Similar to dance and figure skating, the art of Taekwon-Do, specifically patterns, allow women to express themselves through body movement and development of good posture.

3. Self-Defence: This part of our Taekwon-Do training teaches women to avoid dangerous situations as well as get out of them while developing the confidence and tools to defend themselves if necessary.

4. Confidence and Self-Esteem: Through board breaking, we develop a positive attitude and mental state of “I can and I will”, which is instrumental in building confidence and self-esteem in women when facing challenges in life.

5. Focus: The key success of Taekwon-Do training is focus. With our busy lifestyle, women often juggle between work, home, family and friends, and can easily lose focus. But Taekwon-Do teaches us how to focus on priorities despite many demands that are placed upon us.

6. Stress Relief: We accumulate stress from many sources, especially when we put the needs of others before us. Stress is toxic to our body and mind. Taekwon-Do training, especially kicking, punching and sparring, is one of the best and most cost- effective ways to relieve stress compared to other techniques.

In conclusion, Taekwon-Do gives women a BEAUTIFUL AND STRONG BODY AND MIND!
