Welcome! The members of the MIT Tae Kwon Do Club train in the Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do.

All eligible persons – regardless of their level of physical training and experience in martial arts – are welcome in our club. Club members must be MIT students, alums, staff, faculty, or the immediate family members thereof, and must have a current DAPER membership. (These rules apply to all official MIT Club Sports.)

The club welcomes new students (of any age and sex, and possessing any level of fitness and martial arts training) to join any of the club's formal classes without cost or commitment for a trial period. For a fuller explanation, see our page on how to join.

The MIT Tae Kwon Do Club was founded in 1978 by Master Chung Sun Kang, the oldest son of Grandmaster Suh Chong Kang, one of the highest ranking masters in Tae Kwon Do in the world. We have trained continuously since 1978 under our founder and a direct lineage of his students. Black belt examinations are given by Master Ho Sun Kang, our founder's brother, most often at his school in New York City under the supervision of Grandmaster Kang.
