CHUNG DO KWAN TAE KWON DO ANTHEM

                         Lyrics and Music by Marilynn Stark                      

                 

We pledge our hearts to the honor and friendship

That make possible unity

And are guarded by honesty;

We of the noble heart salute the defense of Self and country;

May we serve well the family,

Ever faithful to Tae Kwon Do. (1)

 

Tae Kwon Do: May we raise well our children.

May we fight for our freedom.

May we bring peace to nations.

May we learn to know the way, 

And go by the way of the strict code.

May we preserve America,

Ever faithful to Tae Kwon Do. (2)

 

We train our bodies and minds

And our spirits to integrate;

May our practice be sanctified day after day

With discipline, reality and awareness of the way.

The way of reality knows no fear ultimately;

May we practice in self-defense honorably.

To conquer fear, we must be strong,

And we practice everyday. (3)

 

We give our lives 

To the cause of friends and justice;

To the defense of liberty;

To the life of democracy;

May we know our perfection selves,

And be strong in the face of any battle,

Ever guarded by hand and foot;

Ever focused in Chung Do Kwan

Tae Kwon Do. (4)
