King Tiger TKD has been offering instruction and training in Tae Kwon Do in North Carolina since 1988. Formally known as King Tiger Academy, it was originally founded in Korea by a ninth degree black belt, Grandmaster Jung, Byung Hwa, in 1959. 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 Seok Lee in Greenville, NC in 1988. Since then our training and philosophy has become one of the fastest growing programs on the East Coast - a great source of comfort for the soul.
