Grand Master Ko
Our Taekwondo Grand Master is Yun Sam Ko of Columbus, IN. Grand Master Ko has been teaching Taekwondo for over 36 years. He is one of the original founding members of the World Taekwondo Federation in South Korea, (Kukkiwon). He helped to develop this Federation in the early 70’s and people all over the world today still learn and practice some of the forms, (poomse), he helped to create.
Grand Master Ko, now a WTF 9th Dan Black Belt and a seasoned veteran, is celebrating his 35th year of teaching Taekwondo in Columbus. Although times have changed from when he opened his first school, he continues to work long hours ensuring each of his students get the hands on instruction and inspiration they need to achieve their goals.
They say: “Martial Arts is not just a sport but a way of life”, and Grand Master Yun S. Ko is living proof. At Agape, we are so honored to be able to have the opportunity to be under such a wonderful example of what Taekwondo really is.
