Our School


Official Soo Bahk DoWasatch Martial Arts Academy began teaching Korean Karate since the fall of 2007 in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are independently owned and located at the I.J. and Jeanné Wagner Jewish Community Center, though we are not directly affiliated. Membership to the Jewish Community Center (JCC) is not required to participate. Wasatch Martial Arts Academy is a certified member of the US Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation and World Moo Duk Kwan and the only school in Utah legally authorized to teach Hwang Kee’s art known as Soo Bahk Do, Tang Soo Do, or Moo Duk Kwan. This gives us a direct connection to the roots of both Tang Soo Do and Tae Kwon Do. All rank promotions are internationally certified. You will find each class taught by highly professional instructors who are able to blend both ancient philosophy and tradition with modern scientific application.
