Chief Instructor Colin Wee leads seminar in Upstate NY.

Joong Do Kwan is a boutique Traditional Taekwondo practice. Our roots trace back to the mid-1950s when our lineage was brought out of Korea by Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee. Over the years, our school has evolved under the auspices of Grandmaster Keith Yates' American Karate and Taekwondo Organization.

Joong Do Kwan's Principal Colin Wee promotes a dynamic approach to Traditional Taekwondo; blending traditional source material with a modern training methodology. The training centers on practicality, adaptability, and handling unknown yet predictable situations.

Colin believes in empowering his Black Belts with a top down view of the training system. Deep insight into martial arts doesn't arise from a focus on techniques nor technicalities nor other minutia. The techniques, and forms in fact will reveal themselves from a clarity of form, and function. 

Key Highlights of Joong Do Kwan:
  1. Publication and Seminars: Our journey has been marked by significant milestones, including the publication of the award-winning "Breaking Through: The Secrets of Bassai Dai Kata." Authored by Colin Wee and featuring contributions from Grandmaster Keith Yates, this book offers invaluable insights into traditional martial arts applications and close-quarter combat tactics. Our seminars, led by experienced instructors, delve into the practical applications showcased in the book, providing attendees with hands-on learning experiences and tactical expertise.
  2. Innovative Training Methodologies: At Joong Do Kwan, we emphasize training methodologies that challenge and nurture each individual's growth. Our curriculum is designed to promote lifelong fitness, enhance mental acuity, and foster a deep connection between mind, body, and spirit. We believe in equipping our students with the skills and mindset necessary to excel not only in martial arts but also in all aspects of life.
  3. Community and Heritage: Beyond physical training, Joong Do Kwan is a community of like-minded individuals passionate about martial arts.
