Kim’s Martial Arts has been one of the best decisions we have made for our daughters! Master Kim runs a first class facility! He brings first hand experience with a warm personality greeting each and every student! He has hired quality instructors that are very knowledgeable! They take a sincere interest in our daughters and brings out their personality’s within! Kim’s Martial Arts has impacted our daughters physically, emotionally, and a sound discipline within Grace and Anna! They look forward to going to Taekwondo class each and every time! Master Kim and his instructors have shaped the lives of Grace and Anna in such a positive way! The biggest impact we have seen in our daughters is the fact that their confidence and discipline has impacted other aspects of their lives~school, home, and other sports! We are very happy that we made the decision to enroll our daughters at Kim’s Martial Arts!
Grandmaster Joseph E. Kim is one of the best instructors in this country if not in the world. He is a leading Master in the Martial Arts industry. He is thoughtful, articulate and expert in Taekwondo in knowledge and teaching principles. I have known Grandmaster Kim for over 25 years and he is a person of moral character and most importantly he is respected by his peers.
Carter started training with Master Kim in September 1999 and within a few months I had to start as well. There is no way you can just sit and watch without “catching the bug” yourself. I have seen tremendous growth and maturity in my Son during his time at Kim’s Martial Arts. I have also seen both physical and mental improvement in myself since I started training. I know we are both better people for having trained under Master Kim.
The fact that Carter “waited” for me and we were able to earn our 1st degree black belts at the same time was icing on the cake. We have since also earned our 2nd degree black belts together. Our time spent on our training has strengthened the normal father-son bond and given us an extra connection for the rest of our lives. Kim’s Martial Arts School is truly a family place for us in every sense of the word.
Nick (top right) started us off in 2001, followed by Dad ((David) on the ground), Laura (top center), then Chris (top left). Erica joined at age six. Five years later Nick and David are black belts and everyone continues to progress well.
Laura and Chris passed their Black Belt tests in May of 2009, and Erica continues between soccer and basketball. Master Kim and his staff do an excellent job in training young adults as well as adults!
Our Son’s have been with Master Kim for over 6 years. We have been very happy with the results for many reasons. Master Kim makes it fun but disciplined, not pressurized but very focused.
Master Kim makes it very personalized and knows every student by name, His staff is just an extension of his philosophy which makes the approach very consistent.
We speak very highly of Master Kim’s School when ever we are asked and would recommend it to anyone! It has and continues to help shape our young boys lives in a time that’s more important than ever.
