Who Are We?
We are a traditional martial arts dojang (school) founded by Great Grandmaster Yong Moon. Through teaching the physical and philosophical practices of the martial arts, we believe that we can make this world a better and happier place for all. We can achieve this through teaching both children and adults and grounding them in key character building attributes such as discipline, respect, and integrity.
Great Grandmaster Yong Moon first opened a school in South Korea in 1968. After many years of success, he decided to come to America. His first school was located in Louisiana, where he was a local celebrity by the name of “Master Moon”.
Eventually, he headed west, moved to LA, and started another dojang. It was here that he ran a successful school for 9 years before eventually moving into a larger location where we currently train. We have been in our current location for 17 years.
CULTURE & PHILOSOPHY
We are a family oriented and friendly school, welcoming everyone who wishes to better themselves through martial arts training. We welcome everyone with open arms as long as they are willing to be a positive contributor to our growing martial arts family. We retain a lot of the traditional aspects of martial arts such as bowing, and referring Instructors, Teachers, and Masters with “sir”, or “ma’am”, while also creating a fun and exciting environment for students to thrive.
