"A student of Sabomnim’s is ready. Their bodies are ready. They are ready in strength, power and correctness that wards off injury. I have seen this at tournaments with schools from all around the state. Our kids, from the basic to the best… are different. We’re Master Kim’s. We’re the example that should simply be the standard. We’re the example of training with integrity. In W. Kim’s Martial Arts Academy, this is the real thing."

"I must say it did not take more than one day to know how much Grandmaster Kim was devoted to what he was doing and the great connection he had with these kids. The children love & respect him so much and most of all his humor is full of wit."

"I have been involved in martial arts at several stages in my life. … It was in 2005 when I discovered the Dojang of Master Kim where Hapkido classes were offered. Right after having a long conversation with Master Kim, I just knew I had met a real traditional Hapkido Master that follows the traditional teachings like in the Korean ancient times. … Master Kim has the particularity of being one of the students coming directly from the lineage of the founder of Hapkido Dojunim Ji, Han Jae. Also, having studied and analyzed different martial arts during his whole life, Master Kim combines his experience and expertise in this teaching of this art by applying specific techniques, according to the natural physical abilities of his students."

"I personally travel 35 miles, each way, to attend Master Kim’s classes. Why travel so far when I pass so many martial arts studios along the way? Because, he is simply the best. I have great respect for Master Kim and the training facility he has created. The attitude at the Do Jang is correct. It is a blend of the traditional Korean martial arts philosophy tailored to the western students. Keeping the essential elements of the art while making it more appealing to a wide audience here in the United States. "
