Tae Kwon Do has a rich and varied history. It began 2000 years ago as a form of military training, developed into an Olympic sport, and has become popular throughout the world as a unique form of fitness & self-improvement. Millions of students of all ages have benefited from practicing this facinating Korean Martial Art.
The system of Tae Kwon Do taught at our school is the result of many years of study and experience. At Kim’s Taekwondo Center we are dedicated to educating and training ourselves as well as our students in striving and reaching for our highest individual goals of mental and physical excellence!
Awesome family owned and run Taekwondo studio. Master Kim is great with all ages and personalities. 2 of my kids tend to be on the shy/anxious side and Master Kim has done wonders with helping them open up and build confidence. We love that he teaches traditional Korean Taekwondo not only as a sport but also a philosophy. They teach and model discipline, self control, respect, perseverance, integrity. The wife and teenage son are also amazing, keeping the place running and helping teach classes. They treat everyone like family and are great with kids. 100% recommend!
Our three kids attend Kim's Taekwondo Center. We've had a very positive experience.
Facility: Clean gym with instructional area separated from seating area by a short wall.
Value: The monthly rate covers 2-3 sessions per week per child, and we often have back-to-back classes since our kids span different age ranges. We feel we get our money's worth.
Quality of Instruction: Fantastic. My sense is that we're extremely lucky to have an instructor of Master Kim's skill level teaching our children. Our kids' personalities range from stubborn, to reserved, to 'all over the place.' Master Kim gets them all to focus and follow instruction, all while having a positive attitude. His level of patience with our 3-year-old amazes me.
Quality of Personnel: Again, fantastic. We started TKD because we adopted our younger daughter from Korea and wanted our family to connect with Korean culture. We found that and more. The Kims are so supportive and caring toward all our children. They strive to connect with each of their students on a personal level, which has been very hard to find in past extracurricular activites we've tried.
Overall, we're extremely satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend Kim's Taekwondo Center.
My daughter has been taking Taekwondo from Master Kim for several years. I cannot express how much time he puts into developing his students. He teaches confidence, discipline, respect, and essential skills that help them develop not only in tkd but in life. I highly recommend Kim’s Taekwondo center!
I cannot say enough good things about Master Kim. He is such an incredible teacher -- firm yet loving, fun yet knowing his craft so well. Every single kid responds to him, from shy kids, to overly energetic kids to kids on the spectrum. He is something super impressive, like an 8th degree black belt, a legit Korean master, this is definitely not one of the chain studios. You walk through the doors and are treated like family, you can tell that it is a family-run studio. All of the assistant teachers are great, from the visiting masters from Korea (many from the national team!) to Master Kim's teenage son and wife who keeps the place humming. Unlike many kids activities which get old pretty quickly, all of us look forward to coming here several times a week. A pleasure in every respect, we feel so lucky that we found Kim's Taekwondo Center and the Kim family. We look forward to spending many more years with them as our son works his way up to his black belt.
KTC is the most outstanding center with the one and only Master Kim. He is one of the most incredible human beings I have ever been fortunate to meet. My son and daughter trained with Master Kim for many many years and we are forever grateful for all of the lessons taught. He coached my son to become a Nevada State Champion. He and his family are the best. Master Kim's skills and knowledge are at the highest level with awesome integrity all while staying humble and being a role model to everyone. 5 star x 100.
Master Kim has amazing skills and has a good heart. He is strict in his teachings and the kids learn. Once my daughter met Master Kim, we signed up the same day. He transforms his students to feel positive about themselves, helps with behavior issues and his students build confidence. Martha, Master Kim's wife is helpful and is always busy helping parents like me, who have a hundred questions. I would recommend everyone to bring their kids, themselves and give it a try. The trip will be worth it.
Master Kim has an incredible resume and history in taekwondo, but more importantly, he is an amazing teacher. He is patient and kind, strict but fair. He expects hard work but isn’t afraid to laugh and have fun. He is supportive and nurturing and has a true passion for the sport.
Best Master for kids in Apex and the triangle area. Highly recommend.
