About Master Kim

Master Sung Kim has spent the last three decades teaching taekwondo in his home state of Illinois before moving to Jersey City to be closer to his grandchild. He is excited to continue his taekwondo journey in North Jersey, with a focus on small group youth instruction.

Beginning as a competitive instructor in his early teaching years, Master Kim honed his skills as a teacher and coach at Kim's Martial Arts Academy in Chicago from 1984 to 1988. His passion for Taekwondo and its impact on families led him to a fulfilling career as Master Instructor at Sung Kim Taekwondo in East Peoria, IL, and Peoria, IL, from 1992 to 2023. During this time, Sung Kim also served as the coach for the Sung Kim Taekwondo Team, training and guiding athletes to excel in tournaments and championships across the region.

In 2006, Sung Kim expanded his focus to youth development and transitioned half of his teaching offerings to small group format via dedicated private lessons. Particularly for young children, 1:1, sibling only, and other small group teaching environments tended to foster stronger passion and accelerate development relative to large group settings. Master Kim firmly believes in the value of introducing Taekwondo to children as young as toddlers, as demonstrated by his own three children, who started their journey at age 3. Master Kim understands teaching young children a complex physical art can be challenging but he has developed a sincere understanding of the patience, attention, and care required to help his young students feel comfortable, proud of themselves, and thrive.
