In addition to the training, students will also be taught by instructors or coaches the “tenets” of taekwondo, namely, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit which they can apply not only in gyms but also in their daily lives.

The PTA is affiliated with the World Taekwondo Federation and the Philippine Olympic Committee and recognized by the Philippine Sports Commission.
