What Kwak's Taekwondo/Karate is About

What is Mun Moo Kwan?

Mun Moo Kwan (MMK) is Korean and literally translates to "Knowledge Body Gymnasium". Grand Master Yun Hun Shin is the founder of Mun Moo Kwan, and Mun Moo Kwan was the official Taekwondo school of Suwon Air Force Base in Korea in the 1960's.

In 1969 Grand Master Byung Yul Kwak opened Kwak's Taekwondo / Karate and, as a representative of Grand Master Shin, established Mun Moo Kwan in the USA.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy of Taekwondo is for each of our students to become a better human being, in every aspect.

Traditional Taekwondo accomplishes this by training mind, body and spirit. The mind rules the body, and before a martial artist can perform at his/her maximum, they must learn to control their mind. "He who conquers himself is the greatest warrior"

Our Goals

Our primary goal is for all of our students to become “champions in life”, as well as martial arts champions. To this end, our students are taught to respect everyone and everything.

For over two thousand years, Taekwondo has been used to teach respect toward oneself and toward others. This respect is keynote in the development of a Taekwondoist discipline and character.

Our Affiliates

Our Instructors

Instead of telling you about our Champion Instructors, we prefer to focus on our students. While we're proud of our instructors and their achievements, we're more proud of our students' achievements. All of our instructors were trained by Grand Master Kwak and understand that each of our student's individual progress should be the main focus of their attention. That's why our instructors continue to be students themselves. They take classes, attend seminars and continually work to improve their ability to help our students reach their goals.
