My son has been attending this school for over ten years. His instruction and the nurturing he has received from his various masters and instructors has helped him grow into a strong, confident, self-controlled young man. The masters at the school have consistently fostered his leadership skills and ability to lead groups and work with others.
I signed up both my little ones immediately after a free tryout day because they loved the class so much. Very quickly, they warmed up to the instructor and was able to follow a structured routine. I really enjoy the fact that they reinforce manners, respect, and self-discipline inside and outside the class. Taekwondo for our family is not just about physical strength and training, but also about demonstrating respect toward others.
Great place and the Masters are incredible. My son's behavior has completely changed since he enrolled. His grades have improved and his confidence also. I usually take him 3 times a week. He loves attending and is waiting / hoping one day to be a black belt.
We were a bit hesitant because our son has special needs and we were not sure he would be accommodated. However, the staff has been absolutely wonderful with him. Their inclusive and accepting attitude along with HIGH EXPECTATIONS and tons of encouragement has led to my son to achieving a red belt! His self esteem has grown and he loves his Tae Kwon Do family. We actually drive by a number of other schools to make it to this one because of the incredible staff! I strongly recommend this school!
My kids and I have been here for 10 years. KHKim Taekwondo does not only teach physical strength but also mental strength, discipline, and coordination. The Masters and Instructors are very respectful and kind. They take good care for the kids. They don't only say compliments like "good job!" or "you are awesome!". But when the kids do something wrong, they lead them towards the correct path. They really show true leadership and we are very happy to learn from here. Overall, we have a good connection with our classmates. It truly feels like I am part of a family.
My son is a K H Kim Taekwondo student. He was 15 when he started and it has been life changing for him. He started in the Glen Ellyn Park district and now attends the main School. The Masters from both the Park district's and the main school are excellent Instructors and mentors, and Grand Master Kim is the reason. He really cares about his students success, and works hard to instill positive character traits.
