“Are you looking for a South Korean TKD instructor who challenges and develops stronger character in students?
Master Kim (Owner of HK Taekwondo) balances discipline and firmness with warmth and encouragement. The classes integrate drills and exercises to develop student’s agility, strength, flexibility, endurance and core muscles. The students who work hard, sleep and eat right, look healthier and in greater shape. They also have a tendency to improve their confidence, discipline, competitiveness, and focus.
When the student is more committed about TKD, expect a lot more than a regular TKD class. For example: seminars, tournaments, long training hours, poomsae classes, core workouts, boot camp style classes, etc. Master Kim is always looking for ways to get the best out of the students.
Master Kim is: Respectful, humble, kind, and personable. He’s strict, but approachable and at times even fun (especially with the younger students). Master Kim is clearly passionate and genuine about what he does and this is reflected in the many quality hours he’s investing in his students (Mon to Sat). Yes, HK TKD is ultimately a business, BUT you can easily see that his focus is to provide kids a unique experience and the best training possible. Master Kim understands the simple premise that by trying to build one of the best TKD teams in Austin, the business side will take care of itself.
Lastly, if you want your kid to work harder at getting a black belt (advancement may take a bit longer), if you are okay seeing your kid get pushed to be the best while receiving a few kicks here and there, then look no more. When kids and parents are committed there are higher chances to see a more focused, motivated, fit, resilient, though and disciplined student.”
