Welcome to Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute

World Renowned Grand Master • 35+ Classes Weekly for Men, Women, and Children

Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute, one of the best known Taekwon-do schools in the world, is located right here in the Boston area. The institute was established in 1974 by Grand Master Jae H. Kim who teaches daily at the Boston location. Mr. Kim’s teaching philosophy combines an analytical approach acquired through his studies at Western universities (MIT and Harvard), with special expertise developed in the East by Taekwon-do masters. This unique teaching style has garnered much success for the institute which now operates 16 schools in the US, Singapore, Korea, Ireland, and China, including our Cambridge location.

Most people practice Taekwon-do nowadays for fitness and self defense. Continuous enrollment allows you to start in Taekwon-do at any time of the year, on any day of the month. We welcome beginners, as well as people with experience in Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, Kung Fu, and other martial arts. New students are given introductory lessons on an individual basis so that the student can practice at his/her own pace, and gain confidence before joining the group. The school encourages prospective students to visit and observe a class, so please call, email, or visit the school if you would like to find out more about Taekwon-do and Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute.
