About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but online registration is not available for this activity. Please contact your Welcome Center during regular business hours for registration information.

Taekwondo is a modern martial arts style with roots in a tradition that has grown from over 2000 years of development. Taekwondo, founded in Korea, has been traced to 37 BC by drawings discovered on walls of ancient royal tombs. Taekwondo means "the way of hand and foot" or "the art of kicking and punching." It is an Olympic sport, and the fastest growing martial art worldwide, with more than 50 million practitioners in 120 countries.
Our master instructors have trained directly under Grand Master Nam Souk Kim. One of few 9th-degree black belts in the world, Grand Master Kim sat on the Kukkiwon, the council for the World Taekwondo Federation, headquartered in Seoul, Korea. He is among the founding members of the Chung Do Kwan, one of five disciplines of modern Taekwondo formed in the mid 1940's. Although he resided in California after 2006, Grand Master Kim visited regularly to provide instruction and conduct black belt promotion testing until his passing in 2022 at the age of 91.
Taekwondo classes are taught to help students to achieve the ultimate balance between body and spirit through superior physical conditioning combined with a philosophy steeped in the tenets of inner discipline and indomitable spirit. We train in a safe environment where courtesy, integrity, perseverance, and self-control are emphasized. Whether you are looking to get in shape or serious about competition, Grand Master Kim's Taekwondo at the YMCA is an activity that you, and the entire family, from ages 8 to 80, can grow in together and enjoy.
Monthly fee covers all monthly scheduled Taekwondo classes. There is also a one-time, $30 uniform fee. All colored belt promotion tests and earned belts are included. Black Belt tests incur an additional testing and Kukkiwon certificate application fee.Please contact the Bonner Springs location or the Grand Master Kim’s Taekwondo website (https://gmktkd.com) for registration information.
