Be Careful! 

The martial arts world is a competitive place, and ​Imitation is supposedly the sincerest form of flattery. But be sure to look for this patch, or you may end up paying double the price - for less training​! We are the original, registered  (NON-Commercial) 'Asheville Self Defense', and have been since our founding over 11 years ago. 


In 2020 when the Covid lockdown was announced here, martial arts schools in our region were shut down for months. Jung Kwon Academy began providing free materials online for the community - and we've never stopped! 

Go to our Facebook page (Jung Kwon Martial Arts Academy Asheville) or go to Youtube.com for our channel (search for 'Asheville Self Defense'). There are several hours' worth of videos for your free use - from conditioning exercises, to forms how-to's and even complete mini-classes!

This is the rarely seen, 'Bear-paw' style board break. Most people cannot form the correct hand-shape to do this without breaking their fingers.

It's Mrs. Hughes' favorite technique (but it's a little scary for most of us!)
