OUR STORY

Lions Taekwondo Academy was founded by Grand Master Byun in 1989 in Van Nuys, California. For over ten years, Grand Master Byun put forward a lot of effort to teach the community the benefits of Taekwondo in LA. In 2003, Master Edward joined Grand Master Byun and helped him expand our center of learning, by adding new programs and start competing in the Olympic 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 out grew their location and had to relocate. In 2009, the Lion’s Team relocated to a new school in Sherman Oaks, California with over 3000 Sq Ft of space. After over 30 years of experience, The Lion’s Team has advanced to obtain over 500 members and present over 50 qualified members with black belts throughout its lifetime.
