We are a family owned and operated martial arts school with locations in Allentown, Bethlehem, and Quakertown. Kim's has been a leader in martial arts training in the Lehigh Valley since 1970. Kim's specializes in teaching the Korean martial art of tae kwon do. Our curriculum focuses on both traditional and modern (Olympic style) tae kwon do. Tae kwon do promotes discipline, fitness, weight management, self confidence and leadership building. To learn more or schedule a visit to one of our locations, please contact us today!
Why Kim's Tae Kwon Do?
Kim's Black Belt Academy is truly a unique school. Grand Master Jon Chung Kim provides traditional Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido and Judo training. Classes are taught by Grand Master Kim and his qualified black belt instructors. Students learn to kick, punch, self-defense movements, forms, strategies, discipline, and they are given the opportunity to put these skills to the test through competition and tournaments. We offer traditional Tae Kwon Do and Olympic Style sparring.
Children are taught to use their minds as well as their bodies. Grand Master Kim insists that his students should read, and he has instituted a summer reading campaign to ensure the children continue to read during summer vacation.
Students are also encouraged to bring in their school report cards and share their academic achievements with their instructors and peers. Belts are not simply given out after a student trains for a period. After being selected for promotion, each student must pass a test to achieve to the next level. This not only maintains a high standard within the school, but it also provides the martial arts' practitioner with a sense of accomplishment and pride.
