ABSTRACT

Recently, the importance of English education has increased, and due to this phenomenon most of the English classes in schools are run by foreign teachers in Korea. In this research, the foreign teachers are referred to as NESTs (Native English Speaking Teacher). Many NESTs lived in Korea go through a hard time not only in their everyday life, but also at their workplace because of cultural and social differences. Those who are employed as an educator are not fully prepared to provide good results and their lack of understanding of the Korean educational system causes various problems. To overcome these problems, NESTs oftentimes participate in various sports activities. The sports activities help to decrease their isolation and fear towards Korean culture thus increasing their understanding of other cultures. The aim of this research was to examine the motivations of NESTs' participation in Hapkido, which is one of Koean main martial arts. To examine this, the researchers investigated NESTs’ participation motivation in joining a Hapkido Club and training martial arts. The participants were 7 Nests and their data were collected through individual and group interviews, observation, and journal. The collected data were then analyzed through the inductive Category Analysis Method, and were reviewed by peers and experts for credibility. In result, the motivation of participating in a Hapkido Club were categorized into two motivations such as intrinsic motivation and extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivations are for accomplishing favorable martial arts and for new experiences. Extrinsic motivations are for getting out of stressful working environment and for building positive relationships with Koreans.
