Welcome to the Grandmaster H.K. Lee Academy of TaeKwonDo. This special Academy is dedicated to maintaining high quality martial art instruction and the continued advancement and promotion of TaeKwonDo. This TaeKwonDo Academy is established to elevate the public’s understanding of this ancient art, to research the advancement of physical techniques, better health, moral character, and personal discipline. It has the responsibility to develop programs for all types of individuals so that they can benefit from TaeKwonDo practice and philosophy. It is a mission of the Grandmaster H.K. Lee Academy of TaeKwonDo to help all persons become champions of their own life and develop one’s fullest potential mentally,  physically and philosophically; to succeed in one’s education, family and work. Ultimately, achieving happiness, harmony and world peace.

This Academy prospers only through the endless and selfless support and participation of its members, instructors, students, families and friends.

I personally believe each student of TaeKwonDo is becoming a responsible and caring person. Each student’s instructor is certified by this academy’s strict code of qualifications and is highly trained in genuine martial arts. Together, we have made it possible for TaeKwonDo to be a part of your community. We are demonstrating that we care and that we hope to set an example for others to follow and that by doing so our community will grow strong and peaceful.

I believe with all my heart that responsible individuals, such as yourself,  can make the difference in our world. With the consistent practice of TaeKwonDo, one becomes a healthy sound individual who is able to live to their fullest extent and help others to do the same. With an awareness of one’s physical, mental and philosophical health, together we can eliminate violence and bring peace in the world.

Come Join Us Today and become a part of our TaeKwonDo family mission!

Olympic Style Sparring Instruction

In October of 1973 Park's Karate School opened at 733 Elden Street, Herndon, Virginia. The very first in this area! Master H.K. Lee arrived from Korea and taught for Master Park in February 1976. In 1979 Master H.K. Lee assumed ownership or the school and changed it to the "Hyeon Lee TaeKwonDo" academy. Later, the school was renamed to "H.K. Lee's Academy of TaeKwonDo".

Due to Master H.K. Lee and the popularity of TaeKwonDo, it became necessary to accommodate the growing number of students. Master H.K. Lee could have expanded and franchised his Academy but he chose to relocate to a larger facility at 688 Spring Street so that he could have one best academy and oversee the quality of instruction rather than dividing his instruction between multiple facilities. 

In 2004, Grandmaster H.K. Lee again found it necessary to relocate for the same reasons, to an even larger facility where our Academy is currently located, at 465 Herndon Parkway in Herndon, Virginia.
