A little information about Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute

Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute, one of the best known Taekwon-do schools in the world, is located right here in the Boston area. They were established in 1974 by Grand Master Jae H. Kim, who still teaches daily at the institute. Mr. Kim’s teaching style combines an analytical approach acquired through his studies at Western universities, with special expertise developed in the East by Taekwon-do masters. His unique teaching style has garnered much success for the institute, which now operates 47 schools in the US, Singapore, South Korea, Ireland, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Today, most people practice Taekwondo for health, fitness and self-defense. Their curriculum includes a lot of content to keep adults interested, motivated and inspired. They also take an analytical approach to martial art development that separates them from other schools. Even their children’s program is based on their adult curriculum design.

The institute welcomes both beginners and people with experience in martial arts. To encourage new students, new members are given 3 private lessons to get them comfortable with Taekwon-do and prepare them for group classes. This is especially helpful to the martial arts beginner. Training in Taekwon-do can begin any time throughout the year because they have a rolling admissions system.

The school encourages prospective students to visit and observe a class, so please call or visit the school if you would like to find out more about Taekwondo and the Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute. For more information, here is the link to their web page
