Yong In Martial Arts Academy made its grand opening in Alexandria, VA. This martial arts studio has been open for 27 years. Master Woo's dream and goal was to make his place a monument for the community. Spreading his knowledge to anyone eager enough to join and learn the way of martial arts.

In 1997, Master Woo invited 20 masters for a Benefits Demonstration. These 20 masters, including Master Woo, visited 10 different states conducting a prestigious demonstration for all of their viewers. After the demonstration/expedition, Master Woo signed numerous children and adults for classes. When students started to spread the word about Master Woo's teachings, many government and military personnel joined Hapkido and Tae Kwon Do.

In the year 2000, Master Woo started Before/After School Programs to get more kids involved in Tae Kwon Do. After ten years of the program being opened, it has been a positive influence to the community. Every year more and more come and join because parents see the benefits this program gives them, and how much this martial arts can play a role in their child's everyday life's experiences.

In 2002, Master Woo received an invitation from Yong In University to bring 20 students to South Korea. The 20 students got to participate and watch class. They got to learn a lot about Korean Culture. They also took tours around visiting villages and towns to see the life of Korean culture. When the students got back, they realized in some ways how different and more disciplined Korea is than American Culture.

In 2011 Master Woo added many programs that kids and adults can participate: Tae Kwon Do, Before/After School Program, Summer/Spring/Winter Camps, Birthday Parties, and Family Fun events. There are many programs to choose from so feel free or eager to walk in and take a look around. If you're up to it you can start taking class right away!
