We are a traditional style taekwondo school, focused on teaching the Korean martial art. We welcome people of all ages.
Jung's Taekwondo was founded in 1972 by Grandmaster Woo Jin Jung. Grandmaster Jung immigrated to Cedar Rapids Iowa with $35.00 in his pocket. Today he has trained more than 4500 black belts, and out of those black belts came Forrest Gibson.
Mr. Gibson started taekwondo when he was 10 yrs old under the instruction of Dallas Zimmerman. Twenty one years later, Master Gibson began instructing taekwondo full time. Presently, he runs two branch schools, English Valley & Grinnell. In addition to being the Master Instructor of the schools, Master Gibson is the CEO of the World Black Belt Association. His daughter, Master Summer Gibson, 4th Dan and son, Gage Gibson, 3rd Dan also hold a passion for this martial art. For Master Gibson, taekwondo and it's tenets are truely a way of life.
Taekwondo has something to offer everyone across the lifespan. Jung's Taekwondo in Grinnell & English Valleys is perfect for building confidence, getting into shape, learning self defense and making new friends!
