A number of the founding teachers and students still teach at Jang's Yong In Martial Arts – a testament to the warmth and spirit of this learning community.
Jang's Yong In Martial Arts is dedicated to teaching Hapkido, Yongmoodo, Teakwondo, Self-defense and Weapons. The emphasis is on gaining the confidence and health benefits of Martial Arts. Confidence comes from a learning a wide range of techniques to protect yourself in situation as varied as slipping on the ice to defeating multiple attackers. The health benefits come from learning in a supportive environment with experienced teachers led by Grandmaster Mi Jung Jang.
