Learn from the first family of Taekwondo in America!

T. KANG TAEKWONDO is one of the few schools in the world that is based on TRADITION and REPUTATION.

The T. KANG TAEKWONDO schools are the largest and oldest group of Taekwondo schools in the New York area. We represent over 70 years of world-class Taekwondo experience headed by world renowned Grandmaster Tae Sun Kang, 9th Dan Black Belt.

Grandmaster Tae Sun Kang is a grandmaster like no other. He is a first generation grandmaster who started his training in Korea in 1967. He learned directly from his father, Great Grandmaster Suh Chong Kang. Grandmaster Tae Sun Kang is very active in his Taekwondo studios. He not only engages with students, but also teaches classes on a daily basis. Finding an active grandmaster who still teaches is extremely rare. To this day, Grandmaster Tae Sun Kang teaches TRADITIONAL Taekwondo the way it was originally taught, concentrating on physical and mental well-being while emphasizing proper respect and discipline.

Our school's history dates back to 1969 when it was established under the name New York Taekwondo Academy by the Great Grandmaster Suh Chong Kang, 10th Dan Black Belt and the highest ranking Taekwondo instructor in the world. Great Grandmaster Suh Chong Kang started his training in 1938 learning directly under the founder of the first Taekwondo school in Korea.
