Jae Hun Kim Taekwondo Institute was founded in 1974 by Grandmaster Jae Hun Kim in Boston, USA. Grandmaster Kim carries the tradition set by some of the most recognized Taekwondo masters in the world. He was especially fortunate to receive personal teachings from General Choi Hong Hi - the acknowledged founder of modern-day Taekwondo - and from Grandmaster Park Jung Tae, founder of the Global Tae Kwon Do Federation.
Over the course of 40 years, our institute has become renowned worldwide for its systematic and intuitive method of instruction, coupled with the highest level of professionalism. The Singapore network was established in 2003 to bring Grandmaster’s Kim’s unique brand of Taekwondo to Singapore. The International Network has since expanded to more than nineteen schools in six different countries (USA, Singapore, Korea, Ireland, China, Malaysia).
Our institute is mentioned frequently as a premier Taekwon-do school in the world by various martial arts organizations. The school has been featured in numerous publications as a leader in the field. Our school was selected in 2009 as the top Taekwon-do school in the world by Mookas Media, the world's largest martial arts media corporation, and we received the "2009 World School of the Year Award" from the same organization.
Our instructors in Singapore come from many parts of the world, including USA, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. Many of them are national champions and medalists, with a number of them having represented their countries at the elite level. The team also includes diploma, degree and master degree holders in Taekwondo, sports-related disciplines and other professional disciplines.
