Thrive in a relaxed, yet focused, atmosphere and be amazed at how quickly you progress - we have programs that cater to the individual interests of our community. Students range from all ages with a variety of interests.
We're Family Friendly. The majority of adults in our classes are parents of the kids that are training! All aspects of our center are arranged to build a balanced relationship of trust and respect with our students.
Kids Have a Blast! The young students are respectful and friendly. Most of them don’t play sports and use our classes as an outlet to have fun, burn off some pent up energy, and learn crucial self-defense skills.
Steeped in Tradition. Originating in Korea, our training and philosophy has been preserved from the original teachings and is one of the fastest growing programs on the East Coast!
We are focused and determined to serve you with the highest quality instruction, professionalism, and service in the industry. King Tiger TKD has proudly been offering this level of instruction and training in Tae Kwon Do in North Carolina since 1988.
School History - Grandmaster Jung, School Founder
Originally founded in Korea by a ninth degree black belt, Grandmaster Jung, Byung Hwa, in 1959. The school was formally known as Wang-Ho.
By his late twenties Grandmaster Jung had achieved mastership in Tae Kwon Do and had served extensively in the Korean Military, teaching troops hand to hand combat skills through the art of Tae Kwon Do. In 1959 Grandmaster Jung opened the first King Tiger Academy in Seoul Korea.
Today, there are over one hundred and twenty King Tiger Tae Kwon Do schools on four continents with over thirty in Seoul alone. One of the first US King Tiger Academies was established by Master Byung Seouk Lee in Greenville, NC in 1988.
