Our Instructors First and foremost our instructors. Our instructors range from 3rd to 8th degree black belts with an average 10 years experience in Tae Kwon Do. They have all been taught by Grand Master Kim who has passed on the lessons he has learned over the past 50 years. You or your child will never be taught by someone who just "made black belt". While our black belt students may help in class the class is always lead by a certified Kim's Academy instructor.
