I grew up training at Thousand Waves, then left for school, travelled abroad, and have only recently returned to the area. Since being away from Chicago I have visited dozens of martial arts schools, from New York, to San Francisco, to South America, to the Middle East, and while I have liked many of the experiences I've had, I can honestly say that there is not a single one that comes close to providing what Thousand Waves provides to its students, families, participants, and community. It gave me self-confidence, physical and mental strength and agility, and a way to address violence without being overwhelmed by it, among many many other things. It has been a truly life-defining experience for me, and I am certainly not alone in this assessment. :)
My Name is Arthur Scott, I train under Mr Hyun for five years from 1975 to 1980, until I left the country to live in Israel, Mr Hyun is a very good …
The MMA instructor at this school is a good guy with a lot of Knowledge to share & his class is awesome. The other classes at this place are weak & Mediocre! Not talking down on anyone but I felt like if i tried to use some that crap (Lua & Silat) they were teaching, i'd get killed! I guess that's why the MMA class is full & The other classes are..Not full (3 students tops) He (The MMA instructor) must be doing something right.
My Name is Arthur Scott, I train under Mr Hyun for five years from 1975 to 1980, until I left the country to live in Israel, Mr Hyun is a very good person and instructor, He is my mentor, I will always respect and Honor him, He always call me Scotty. I made Black Belt before I left, I went back to visit the school in 2001 Mr Hyun was so happy to see me as I was to see him. I will keep him in my prayers always.
I went to Kellers to try out a class, free trial for new customers is an ongoing special that they offer, and I just loved the school. The facility is beautiful, clean and covered in mats so you are safe to train without fear!!! The instructors where great! I am hooked on Capoeira, but also enjoy their MMA program with Shonie Carter, World Champion and UFC Fighter.
Master Chung's Tae Kwon Do Studio has a Rich tradition of Excellence. I was a student here from 4-11 and now I'm back learning even more. Master Chung's true compassion for kids is a cornerstone of his School. I feel Blessed to be a part of his school.
I would definitely recommend this school to any parent or adult who is interested to sign up. My son started there and I have enjoyed how well the staff treats everyone that I have joined also and look forward to actually going to class and working out.
