Welcome

Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute, one of the best known Taekwon-do schools in the country, is located in the Boston area, including in Newton, MA. Our institution was established in 1974 by Grand Master Jae H. Kim who teaches throughout the five local institutions and more than twenty schools worldwide. Mr. Kim’s teaching style combines an analytical approach acquired through his studies at Western universities, 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 25 schools in the US, Singapore, Korea, Ireland, China, and Malaysia.

The institute is especially well known in the Taekwon-do communities around the world for two of its unique classes. Anyone interested in Taekwon-do “Forms/Patterns” will be delighted to know that the school is recognized as a world leader in Traditional Forms. In fact, Mr. Kim is one of just a handful of active teachers left in the world who had the honor of receiving personal training from the acknowledged founder of Taekwon-do, General Choi. The other class is called Full Range Sparring which utilizes striking as well as grappling techniques. The school has been offering this training long before MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) became popular on TV.

Most people practice Taekwon-do nowadays for fitness and self defense. The school utilizes a continuous enrollment system which allows you to start your training in Taekwon-do at any time throughout the year. We welcome beginners, as well as individuals experienced in Karate, Judo, Kung Fu, and other martial arts. New students at our Newton location are given introductory lessons on an individual basis so the student can practice at his/her own pace. The school encourages prospective students to visit and observe a class, so please call us at (617) 630-8400, or visit us during our business hours if you would like to find out more about Taekwon-do and Jae Hun Kim Taekwon-do Institute.

My son and I agreed that if he earned a Yellow Belt, I would join him at Newton Taekwon-do. In the years since, we have attending the many types of classes offered by Mr. Cha, but the Sunday Family Class remains our favorite.

Five years after starting at The Newton School, my son earned his first degree black belt. Along the way he has learned that hard work and dedication pays off, that he can overcome challenges, and that he is limited only by how hard he is willing to work.
