Moving Tradition Forward…


Welcome to the U. S. Taekwondo Academy website.  Located in beautiful downtown Kenosha, we have been an integral and established part of the community since 1978.  The U. S. Taekwondo Academy specializes in developing a student’s core character.  Our highly successful process comes from the depth of knowledge and experience that was founded by Grand-Master Koang Woong Kim whose martial arts lineage can be traced back for more than two millennia.  Some of Grand-Master Kim’s distinguishing honors are as follows:


  • Man of the Century
  • Holds the highest rank in Taekwondo outside of Korea.
  • More than 6 decades of experience in coaching, developing, and teaching.
  • Most decorated international referee in the world
  • Recognized as one of the pioneers of modern Taekwondo
  • Grand-Master to more than 100 internationally recognized black belt students


Our greatest responsibility is to partner with our students and parents to instill in our students a sense of discipline and a code of ethics to inspire them to lead exemplary lives as leaders in the community through assertive confidence.
