Keun Yeong Park
5th Degree Black Belt
Master Yeong is a Korean-born Taekwondo Master who has over 20 years of experience teaching Taekwondo in both South Korea and America. He started training at the age of 12 and his master quickly saw that he had a talent for sparring, so he recommended that he begin specialized sparring training. He went on to be a part of a Korean national sparring team for 6 years and although the training was intense, he’d found something he truly loved to do. His passion for the art then led him to Keimyung University where he majored in Taekwondo. In 2017, he opened Victory Taekwondo Academy so that he could share his love of Taekwondo with others and to make a positive impact in their lives.

Why Learn Taekwondo?
Taekwondo truly has something for everyone and people start training for different reasons! Many parents are looking for a way to help their kids become more focused with better self control, or they want them to learn to defend themselves. Adults may be looking for a workout style that they enjoy to help them get the fit and healthy body that they want, but haven't been able to accomplish.
Whatever the initial reason, students quickly find that along with these great benefits, you're getting so much more through training at Victory! The confidence that you gain throughout your training is a benefit that not everyone goes in thinking about, but it can impact your life in a huge way!
From breaking your first board to finally mastering techniques that were once SO difficult, your confidence will soar! You'll gain the ability to meet challenges head-on, knowing that when you work hard and devote yourself to something, you can achieve things you once thought impossible! This is an invaluable life lesson for kids (and adults!!) that can open doors that will change the course of their lives!
