“I chose this studio as a way to engage my son within his community. I was looking for structure, discipline, and
guidance to instill within my son’s values and daily routine. When I first enrolled compared to how I feel now -
I found what I was looking for. My son continues to amazes me.”
"WE COULDN'T HAVE A BETTER CHOICE!"
“Our family chose Kim's Hapkido because it offered such a comprehensive program, not only covering Martial
Arts but also ensuring the academic, mental, and physical strengths of its students. Master Kim is a visionary
blessed with laser focus on each student's strengths & opportunities. We love how he gets to know each and
every one of them. We expected the standard classes often seen in many Martial Arts programs. We are
blown away with what Skyler is learning and achieving! Kim's Hapkido is not simply a studio; it is a Life
Academy for all ages & families involved. We couldn't have a better choice!”
MORE FOCUSED, MINDFUL AND CONFIDENT
“When we first heard about Kim’s Hapkido we thought it would just be a great extracurricular for our daughter.
What we learned on day one is that it is so much more! Our daughter is more focused, mindful, and confident.
She is also becoming such a strong leader from all her hard work with Master Kim. He truly loves working with
children and cultivating them into strong leaders for the future. Highly recommend this to parents of children
of all ages.”
"I HAVE TOTALLY BECOME STRESS-FREE..."
“By training in the martial arts, I have totally become stress-free. I love it. My life is so much more enjoyable!”
"I HAVE LOST 12 POUNDS, GAINED GREAT CONFIDENCE!"
“I love Martial Arts training! With the training I’ve got, I have lost 12 pounds, gained great confidence!”
LOST OVER 65 POUNDS...
“Since I’ve started Martial Arts, I’ve lost over 65 pounds! On top of that, I’ve gained confidence.”
"LOST 25 POUNDS..."
“I know that practicing the martial arts has helped me! I’ve lost 25 pounds, learned to control my emotions and be happier.”
"I ABSOLUTELY lOVE THIS STUDIO."
“I'm 51 years old and in my third year of Hapkido study at Kim's Hapkido. I absolutely love this studio! Master
Kim is a kind and patient teacher with high standards and expectations; he is also a mentor and friend to his
adult students. While the Hapkido kicking, punching, and sparring drills provide a fantastic physical workout,
the self-defense joint-lock techniques engage and challenge the problem-solving areas of the brain. Master
Kim also has a vast knowledge of the histories and philosophies of Hapkido and other martial arts styles, and
this knowledge informs the classroom atmosphere. After each class, I leave the studio with a sense of mental
and physical well-being which stays with me for the remainder of the day. If you are at all interested in learning
a martial art, this is the place for you.”

“I met Master Kim when I was 12. I was a kid that moved around alot. I had been in martial arts since I was 5,
disciplined in Kempo and tae kwon do. I had tried several studios in the area and was wondering if this one
would be the one. After one class I knew it was. Not only was master Kim a great practitioner but he was a
great teacher. Not just in martial arts but in every aspect of life. Out all the masters I've had he is by far the
most influential one. I would not be the man I am today without his training. He taught me to be respectful, to
help others, and the will power to go beyond my physical limits. Now I'm 28, a loyal husband, a loving father of
4, a SGT in the army, a police officer. I know I wouldn't have been able to do all this without the guidance of
Master Kim. He is truly a father figure. Thank you so much Master Kim! And he would always tell me to cut my
"BUILDING STEP TO SUCCESS IN THE FUTURE"
“When we first came to Kim’s Hapkido, we were looking for a program to help build confidence and self
protection For our son. After the first class with Master Kim, our son and us loved the way Master Kim
interacted with the kids and how his energy brought out the energy in the kids. From day 1 our son loved
going to class every week and we loved watching him grow from someone who was quiet in the back of class
and move into leading classes and teaching new students all of the things he learned as he came up. Now he is
in the Blackbelt program and continuing to learn and grow each week. We would recommend Master Kim to
any parent because this program is definitely a building step to success in the future.”
Although many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
