Lions Taekwondo Academy was founded by Grand Master Byun in 1989 in Van Nuys, California. For over ten years, Grand Master Byun put foward a lot of effort in order to teach the community the benefits of Taekwondo. In 2003 Master Edward joined Grand Master Byun and helped him add new programs, grow the school, and start competing in the sport of Tae kwon Do. In 2007 Master Edward took over the school and his sister Margarit joined the team. With all of the hard work and unlimited sacrifice made by all three, the Lion’s family has continued to grow to over 50 members. In 2009 the new school was opened in Sherman Oaks, California with over 3000 Sq Ft of space. The Lion’s family has now grown to have over 120 members wih numerous accolades to prove that the program has earned the respect of the martial arts world.
