About Us

Welcome to Kim’s School of TaeKwonDo! We have served the Bellaire, Meyerland, and Central/Southwest Houston area for almost 20 years.

We believe in not only teaching TaeKwonDo at a high level, but are committed to martial arts as a path to becoming a better person at any age.

We are a family school, not just in the ownership, but in philosophy. Following the example of our founder, 8th degree Grand Master Kim, we see the school and all students as a family in itself. We believe in encouragement, holding to expectations, and responsibility to each other.

TaeKwonDo meets you at whatever ability, age, and physical condition you are in and builds from there. We have classes for children, teens, adults, and special family classes for parents and children to have the unique opportunity to train together.

We strive to instill the core values of TaeKwonDo in each of our students. These tenets are Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self–Control, and Indomitable Spirit. The tenets of TaeKwonDo are a guide for how each of our students treat each other and how they overcome adversity inside Kim’s School of TaeKwonDo and out.

Please call us at 713-661-6766 to set up a free trial lesson.

Master Kim started taking taekwondo in 1991. She began teaching taekwondo when she was a green belt. Master Kim has been continuously teaching and training for the past 23 years. Her ownership of the school has ben for the last 8 of the school’s 20 years.

Master Kim explains her longevity in a sport where people come and go: “I started taekwondo out of my interest in physical fitness, but taekwondo has managed to maintain that interest because it is fulfilling on many levels with social, educational, therapeutic, cultural, even artistic value. Taekwondo is useful for self-defense and instills discipline and a fighting spirit.” Taekwondo provides Master Kim a positive outlet in which to relate to her community.

Master Kim talks about the many students who have been a part of the school: “Over the years, this school has provided teaching excellence in taekwondo for the local community. We have recently celebrated the school’s 20th year anniversary. We are proud to have ties to black belts here in Houston, the United States, and across the world.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

Growing up Master Sean was an angry child. He got in a lot of fights and was trouble for his mother and his teachers. In order to get exercise and hopefully expend excess energy, Master Sean was in enrolled in TaeKwonDo under Grand Master Kim. His attitude gradually began to change. Master Sean ended up being a better student and a better son thanks to everything he learned on the mat. “I truly owe everything I have accomplished on and more importantly off the mat due to the lessons learned in class.” It is because of these lessons that he now teaches. He enjoys watching each of his students grow in both TaeKwonDo and as people.

The relationship between time and anti-time is analogous to the relationship between matter and anti-matter, and upon contact, the two would annihilate each other, causing the rupture in Space.

Personal Statement:  I was extremely shy growing up so my parents enrolled me into Taekwondo early on to boost my self-confidence. I fell in love with the sport and have been training since I was 6. My favorite part of Taekwondo is sparring, and it has always been my goal to go to the Olympics. Taekwondo has become one of my many passions.  I am daily motivated by our students who share the love for Taekwondo.
