Life Skills For Today & Tomorrow
For many, many generations, Master Kee H. Kim and his family have been studying Martial Arts.
Each of the nationally and internationally certified instructors at Moorestown Martial Arts reflect his teachings. However, instead of focusing on the accomplishments of the instructors, they want to focus on their students. The accomplishments of students make the instructors far more proud than even their own accomplishments. Instructors understand that the progress of each individual student should be the main focus. This is why each instructor continues to be a student themselves. Instructors take classes, attend seminars, and continually improve themselves in order to help their students improve.
Our philosophy is built upon these words; humility, concentration, integrity, indomitable spirit, perseverance, respect, obedience, and self-control. The Tenets of Kun Gek Do describe a lifestyle that all students are taught by example. These Tenets will help them lead a better life for themselves as well as for those around them. By consistently striving to develop this type of character, the student is enabled
to live a peaceful and harmonious life which further promotes the well-being of others and community.
While teaching practical self-defense skills, we teach a philosophy of non-violence since a main goal of
the Martial Arts is to cultivate a person 's mind and body; not to use it as a means to "show off' and show vanity, or to vent one's anger, frustration, or emotional difficulties. Physical confrontation should be avoided whenever possible; force is only condoned in self-defense or in defense of those who are defenseless. This describes our goal of "Black Belt Excellence." These are our ethics, this is the way
we choose to live.
Student Creed: "I intend to use what I learn in class constructively and defensively to help my fellow human beings and myself, and never to be abusive or offensive."
The focus of our program is respect, loyalty, confidence, responsibility, and honor. Each of our students is instilled with the idea that these behaviors are not simply a set of qualities to demonstrate during certain situations. Instead, these words define a way of being that should be present at all times, whether a student is in the dojang, at home, at school, at work, or with friends. From our preschool "Mini Mites" and "Ninja Turtles" to our adults, each student is expected to consistently demonstrate these qualities as a lifestyle choice.

Kun Gek Do gives equal emphasis to both upper and lower body workouts. Traditionally, it is a blend of Tae Kwon Do and Muay Thai kickboxing. Our style is built upon the traditional with more practical and proven self-defense techniques. Each student is well prepared for any situation that may present itself.
