Martial Arts for Health

We offer a martial arts practice that is healthy on all levels, building a smart body, strong mind and soft heart. We believe that everyone can be beautiful, powerful and intelligent, all at the same time. Our mission is to make the greatest positive difference for the greatest number of people.
We practice our mission inside the dojang at every moment, contributing to each other in the most constructive way at all times.

As an extension of our mission, we practice our commitment to excellence in the greater Asheville community in a variety of ways, by performing demonstrations, classes, workshops and motivational speeches for a variety of organizations, events and businesses in the area. We also teach martial arts classes at multiple venues, including physical education (PE) classes and after-school programs, thereby supporting a large number of students and schools in the area. Additionally, Asheville Sun Soo regularly donates martial arts training to support fundraising efforts for worthy causes, and offers teen volunteers for many of the area’s non-profit organizations.

The Asheville Sun Soo community experiences continual growth, built on the foundation of the relationship between awareness, capability and contribution. Increased awareness develops increased capability, which ultimately supports increased contribution, all of which makes the world a better place.

Come practice at Asheville Sun Soo and help make the world a better place.
