Master Han Woong Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and moved to America in 1988. He studied martial arts under his father, the founder of Jang Mu Won Hapkido, Grandmaster Chong Sung Kim. Master Kim was chosen from among his family to pass on the art due to his exceptional dedication to teaching. Currently a sixth degree black belt, he has operated his martial arts school in South Pasadena, California since 1992.
Master Kim's dedication to the Jang Mu Won Hapkido Association, founded by Grandmaster Kim in 1960, has earned him the position of Vice President within the organization. As co-founder of Jang Mu Won Hapkido International and numerous educational DVDS, Master Kim has worked diligently to share this unique martial art with an increasingly broad audience.
