Master Kim is one of a handful of active teachers left in the world who had the honour of receiving personal training from the acknowledged founder of Taekwondo, General Choi Hong Hi.

JH Kim Taekwondo Institute was founded in 1974 by Grand Master Kim Jae Hun in Boston, USA, and is one of the best known Taekwondo schools in the country. The story of our school began with Grand Master Kim moving to Boston in 1971 to attend MIT. He started teaching Taekwo-do at area universities, where his classes quickly filled up with eager students as people took notice of Mr. Kim's unique teaching style. They recognised the value of Mr. Kim’s approach, which combines an analytical approach acquired through his academic studies at Western universities, with special expertise developed in the East by Taekwondo Masters.
When Grand Master Kim's Taekwondo classes at the universities could no longer hold the burgeoning number of students coming to him from all over the Boston area, Grand Master Kim decided to open a Taekwondo school of his own, where his students could practise under his supervision day and night. Thus, the Jae Hun Kim Taekwondo Institute was born on July 15, 1974, on Brookline Avenue in Boston.
Grand Master Kim's unique teaching style has garnered much success for the Institute, attracting Taekwondo students of all ages and backgrounds, from around the world. It currently operates schools in the US, Singapore, Korea, Ireland, and China. The institute is especially well known for two of its unique classes.
Our institute is mentioned frequently as a premier Taekwondo school in the world by various martial arts organisations. In 2009, J H Kim Taekwondo Institute was selected as the top Taekwondo school in the world by Mookas Media, the world's largest martial arts media corporation, and we received the "2009 World School of the Year Award" from the same organisation.
