This is an excellent school. I first attended this school from when it was located in the Southland Plaza Shopping Center and when it later moved to its current location at 730 Highway 75, Imperial Beach, CA 91932. Classes are taught by Grand Master Nam Kil Kim who is an excellent teacher. Although he is a tough instructor, he is also very kind, professional and truly cares for the success of his students. Leading by example, Grandmaster Kim's instruction teaches all his students to obtain the five tenets of Tae Kwon Do which are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit. Tae Kwon Do benefits your mental discipline as well as your physical one. For example, by concentrating and focusing one's strength to break a brick or wooden board, one learns to gain inner/outer strength as well as strong-will and physical strength. As Henry Ward Beecher once said, "The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from strong will, and the other from a strong won't." If you're looking for a place/activity where you can improve your mind, body and way of life, then I highly recommend you attend this martial arts school. You will not regret it! Not only will you learn how to defend yourself mentally and physically, but, you will gain a lot of benefits that will benefit you in all areas of your life from school, work/career, relationships, self-discipline, etc.
