Grand Master Yong Han

Grand Master Yong Han was born July 20, 1969 in Chungsong, Korea. His father passed away when he was 5 years old. At the age of eleven his mother enrolled him Taekwondo to make him strong, with hopes that he will not be bullied at school. Grand Master Han tested for his first black belt at thirteen years old, and under the guidance of Grand Master Chung Sun Choi, continued to thrive and steadily advance. For 15 years of his young adult life, he worked tirelessly as a paid instructor while also running his own studio. As he exhausted all his young adult life, he decided to emigrate from Korea to the United States in order to achieve his new goals. In March 31, 2001, Grand Master Han came to the US and worked as a paid instructor in Moorpark, California. He worked 6 days a week and did not allow his meager circumstances to deter him from his ultimate desire to open his own Taekwondo school. In June 16, 2008, he realized his dream of opening his own Dragon Han Martial Arts Center in East Palmdale, California. And in January of 2011, he opened a second location in West Palmdale, California. Grand Master Han's journey began as one to improve his own life. Today, he is considered a pioneer of Martial Arts in Palmdale and one of the most sought-after leaders in the industry. Grand Master Han has given his dedicated staff the task of continuing the mission and legacy that is Dragon Han Martial Arts: "to better the lives of everyone" for all future generations of martial artists. Head Grand Master Han has overcome obstacles that many have not had to endure. The perseverance he has demonstrated in life makes him uniquely qualified to say:

You can do anything if you have enough desire and a realistic plan.
