Located in Maple Grove, Minnesota, World Taekwondo Academy was founded by Grandmaster Byung Yul Lee in 1969. It was created to help people learn about the wonderful benefits of Taekwondo and martial arts. Today, we are still dedicated to educating, inspiring, and teaching people about the wonderful world of taekwondo. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art with a heavy emphasis on kicks. It was developed as a blend of indigenous Korean fighting styles of taekkyeon, gwonbeop, and subak, with influence from foreign martial arts, such as karate and other Chinese martial arts.
