Our Founder Master Huh, started training in the Art of Taekwondo in 1976 learning and Training under 9th Dan Grand Master Sam Park (Founding Father of Taekwondo in Canada). During his training, Master Huh successfully competed in tournaments all across southern Ontario, Canada and the United States winning numerous championships. With a constant need to further his knowledge, he started Greco Roman Wrestling in 1984 and under the challenge of this new found discipline he was victorious in numerous amateur championships. 1985 Master Huh further developed his Martial Arts studies by enrolling in the Art of Judo where he competed and won many tournaments. With a comprehensive knowledge based in Greco Roman Wrestling, Master Huh excelled in Judo and was crowned club Champion. His Taekwondo teaching career began in 1987 and as a result he is personally responsible for having trained thousands of students.
Master Huh continues his passion, actively teaching and coaching at both locations on a regular basis. His “Hands On” approach allows every student, young or old, beginner or advanced to be taught and their progress personally overseen by Master Huh. This approach allows students to reach higher levels of Martial Arts understanding through daily messages of Respect, Discipline and Humility.
