Hong’s Taekwondo and Martial Arts - Serving the greater Milwaukee, Waukesha and surrounding area
Welcome to Hong’s Tae Kwon Do
Tae Kwon Do is a Korean Martial Art which has been developed through centuries of Eastern
civilization. Today, Tae Kwon Do has evolved into not only the most effective method of weaponless
self-defense but an intricate art, exciting sport and a trenchant method of maintaining physical fitness.

beauty and power.

Within the Dojang, there are no Age, Sex or Racial barriers. Under the watchful eye of Master Hong,

and Martial Art students can expect to develop Strength, Stamina, Quickness, Flexibility, Coordination
and Balance, the road to mastery of the art requires that the physical lessons be balanced with equally
important mental characteristics of Patience, Humility, Self-Control, Perseverance, Concentration and
Respect. Gradually your lessons from our school will color other aspects of life.

hard. We look forward to your
continuing effort and
dedication to the Martial Art
Tae Kwon Do.
