About Master Son Yong Kim

Master Son Yong Kim began his martial arts training in 1981 under Grand Master Jon Chung Kim, who is a Korean National Champion and a former instructor of the United States of America government forces. After Master Son Yong Kim received his black belt in 1987, he began his teaching career in martial arts.

As he progressed as a black belt, he began sparring competitively and was ranked third in the nation after the Junior National Olympics in 1991. As a young black belt, he always had the desire to teach others.

Since 1994, he has trained many national champions who were ranked top 10 in the Nation and top 3 in the state of Pennsylvania. In 2003, he became the head instructor at the Bethlehem school and in 2014, he opened a school in Quakertown.

He invites visiting Masters to his school such as Master Hyun Suk Lee, a world champion of Tae Kwon Do, so that the students learn different styles and techniques. He also invited the Korean Embassy to teach the children and adults about Korea and its culture.

Master Kim believes that his Tae Kwon Do journey has just begun, and he continues to train and teach for life.

Currently Master Kim holds a 6th degree black belt.
