Building a Better Community
In 1979, Grandmaster Duk San: Sung H. Kim (then Master Kim) put on a demonstration showcasing the talents of his students, instructors and fellow masters at Edwards Middle School. In appreciation for his community and this country he would call home, the proceeds from the event ($500) went towards a scholarship fund for Brunswick schools.
39 years later, Kim's College of Martial Arts proudly carries on this legacy of building a better community through traditional martial arts. Thanks to the support of our wonderful students, parents, instructors and our benevolent neighbors and friends, we've been able to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for local, national and international charity organizations such as the Brunswick HS Scholarship fund, MS Society, Medina County Battered Women's Shelter, HOSPICE of Medina County, American 911 Relief Fund, Red Cross, The Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, World Vision, NEOPAT (Northeast Ohio Foundation for Patriotism) and the USO of Northern Ohio.
Our goal is clear. Since martial arts literally translates as "the way of making peace" we are called to be peacemakers. The reason we become stronger, the reason we train as hard as we do, is so that we can use our strength to help others.
For Grandmaster Kim, his home country of South Korea is still very close to his heart and mind, but he knows that he owes his life to America. He always knew he wanted to give back to the community that gave him this great opportunity. This is the same opportunity that we are blessed to share with our students and the same opportunity that we give to you.
Our 39th Annual Peacemakers Charity Exhibition is scheduled for November 10, 2018.
