Welcome To MT Kim – Black Dragon

Few Americans knew tae kwon do when Mountain Kim opened his first school in Falls Church in 1973. So the Korean martial arts champion would don his white dobok and give demonstrations in grocery stores, parking lots and anywhere else he would be allowed to perform. Breaking stacks of boards with his bare hands and other feats would draw crowds, and Kim would hand out fliers about his tae kwon do and judo classes.

Today, tae kwon do is an official Olympic sport, and Kim runs a chain of more than 20 Mountain Kim Martial Arts schools in the metropolitan Washington area. Kim credits tae kwon do’s rise from its roots in Korea, where it’s the national sport, to the fact that the self-defense moves are easy to learn, teach coordination and mental focus, and help people unwind while losing weight. ”This is good for kids, good for discipline,” says Kim, who’s never studied English formally. “Teaches respect for teacher and home. Very good sport.”
