What We Do

Self-defense techniques are taught in a safe and enjoyable environment. Our strong curriculum-based program challenges the beginner as well as the most advanced student. Instruction emphasizes the values and practical application of various martial arts. Students can expect to improve their flexibility, strength, and endurance while learning to perfect their art.


Who We Are

Dr. Kimm trained under Grandmaster Kim Jong-chun. Later he attended Central Yudo School where he trained under Grandmaster Bang Young-doo, the head instructor of the Korean Police Headquarters. He also attended Korea Gym, training under Grandmaster Yu Sook-dong, where he received instructions in Kong Soo Do and boxing.

From the knowledge he accumulated over the last forty years through various grandmasters and personal experience, Dr. Kimm created the martial arts system, Han Mu Do, which means “Way of Korean Martial Arts.”
