It is indeed rare to be able to experience learning a martial art from its creator.  Hanmudo has been created by the foremost Korean historian alive today, Dr. He Young Kimm.  Trained from an early age, Dr. Kimm holds advanced degrees in Judo, Hap Ki Do and Taekwondo.
Grandmaster and PhD. , Dr. Kimm brings to life centuries of Korean knowledge, fighting techniques and philosophy.  Hanmudo is a diverse art form that includes weapons training, Ki breathing technique, powerful and elegant joint locks, takedowns and throws.  Our special relationship with Dr. Kimm allows us to go in depth to uncover the real history and practice of Korean Masters throughout the martial art ages of Korea.

The Hanmudo program is open to all active Tiger-Rock members (no age limit), although it is recommended that each student be a Yellow Belt or above. This is the only program outside of Taekwondo that allows participants to earn rank. Curriculum is limited to the Provisional level.

Qualifications for an annual teaching certificate are coordinated between the Tiger-Rock Martial Arts International and the World HanMuDo Association.

My experiences in the programs at the academy have influenced my life for the better. The Academy was a community I felt that I belonged to, not to mention the physical gains like my approved cardio, flexibility and strength. I learned to be confident there by going to tournaments. It was very easy considering I had a whole group of friends to back me up and cheer me on.

"I just want to offer a very sincere thank you for all that you do for my children and so many others in our community. I am so pleased to have my sons exposed to the role models that you and the other members of the Bailey’s TaeKwonDo staff demonstrate. ... It is hard to find people in today’s world who actually are examples of what they teach and profess to believe. I have seen no better examples of adherence to one’s beliefs and teachings than you and the personnel at Bailey’s."
