Headmaster Jonghyun Yi

Head Master Jonghyun Yi has been training since the age of 4 years old. 

At 8 years old he knew that he wanted to become a Master of the martial arts and every step he took was to help achieve that goal. 

At 17 he received his 1st dan and became 1 of 2 people in the history of MA Taekwondo Team to earn a gold medal at the Korean-American Olympic Festival.

Master Yi currently holds the rank of 7th Dan in Taekwondo, 6th Dan in both Hapkido and Gumdo. 

He is a USAT Level 1 coach and is also a World Taekwondo licensed coach for both Poomsae as well as Sparring Athletes.

With 35 years of training and 20 years of teaching experience, Master Yi also majored in Physical Education and Child Psychology in college.

Master Yi continually passes down his love for martial arts and the benefits it holds by successfully raising a nationally competitive team into its 5th year, helping students prepare for life.  He shows his students to not just talk the talk but walk the walk. His philosophy of martial arts translates to be able to coincide with normal day to day life. Motivating people to be better versions of themselves is a life long goal.

In his spare time, Master Yi loves to devise new ways of training, playing Tekken, snowboarding, hiking, spending time with his family, tuning cars, and enjoying life and the beauty it holds.
