Heritage / Lineage

Grandmaster Jae Hun Kim first established the institute at Boston, Massachusetts in 1974. He carries the tradition set by some of the most recognized Taekwondo masters in the world. He was especially fortunate to have received personal teachings from General Choi Hong Hi, the acknowledged founder of modern-day Taekwondo, and from Grandmaster Park Jung Tae, founder of the Global Tae Kwon Do Federation. Singaporeʼs Master Santos Rivas, Grandmaster Kimʼs key protégé, heads J H Kim main and east institutions.

Today, the main headquarters is located at 102 Brookline Avenue, Boston MA, 02215. There are altogether 15 J H Kim Taekwondo Institutes around the globe – Singapore, USA, Ireland, China and Korea.
