In 2003 Master Santos Rivas opened his first JH Kim Taekwondo school in Singapore, having been groomed as Grandmaster Jae Hun Kim’s protégé from his childhood. Grandmaster Kim opened his Boston school in 1974 and was also mentored at a young age, in fact – by the founder of modern day taekwondo himself, General Choi Hong Hi.
Our rich heritage of technique, personally handed down from General Choi to Grandmaster Kim then to Master Rivas, has been developed over decades by the most important, influential and celebrated masters of our art. Joining JH Kim Taekwondo Bali ensures you receive the absolute best Taekwondo instruction available anywhere in the world, but you also become part of a tradition and family only 3 generations from the founding fathers of Taekwondo.
Our schools and staff are dedicated to teaching taekwondo in a safe and professional environment. With the best team of instructors personally groomed by Master Santos himself, we are committed to continue being the leader in martial arts education. Our system is:
A Complete System
Our system includes a full program of study in modern Olympic sport taekwondo AND traditional taekwondo, teaching kicks, punches and blocks. Unlike other schools, ours is a complete system including grappling, locks, throws, full range techniques, etc. While students are free to specialize in specific areas they may find interesting, our school provides the most comprehensive instruction on all aspects of Taekwondo found anywhere world-wide.
All instruction must be based on solid physical principles, and students must have a complete understanding of the techniques but also why each one is done a particular way. JH Kim Taekwondo students are encouraged to have in depth technical discussions with instructors and other students to develop a much deeper understanding of our techniques.
We are dedicated martial artists, solely focused on teaching and practicing taekwondo – no time in our schools for involvement in politics.
Through the practice of Taekwondo our members become the absolute best they can be, improving both mind and body, conducting themselves ethically at all times with a sense of unity among all school members.
