Dae Han is a Martial Arts studio where the highest quality of Tae Kwon Do, Hap Ki Do, and Gum Do is taught.

Welcome to Dae Han Martial Arts & Fitness! Dae Han is an establishment that was founded to help bring a better quality of life to our community. We believe that everyone has the right to live to the best of their ability, with healthy mind and body. We are the best local martial arts school in the Acworth, Kennesaw, Powder Springs, and Woodstock area, and have been providing the highest quality Traditional Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, and Gum Do training to our community for over 20 years. Our purpose is to help people realize the benefits of fitness, and gain a sound mind and fit body through Martial Arts Training, and improve their overall quality of life. Everybody can benefit in many different areas of life as they are training in traditional Martial Arts: self-discipline, self-confidence, concentration, agility, mental alertness, stress release, physical improvement, self-defense, weight loss. As the premier martial arts school in the area, we guarantee you to realize the most results from your effort and time spent training with us. To maximize your benefits, the masters and instructors at Dae Han have developed the highest level of knowledge in Martial Arts, and they are experienced and certified teachers and trainers. We strongly believe in traditional way and training methods of the martial arts, which date back to over 5000 years old. The core purpose of the training centers on developing self-discipline, respect, honor and integrity. These values help to bring people into a better understanding of themselves and build a closer relationship with their community. Our student body consists of people of all ages, from 3 year old children to senior adult men and women. Each class we offer for the different age groups is specifically structured to best reach and teach that group. By concentrating on addressing issues and aspects pertinent to that age group, we can help them apply the teachings and tenets of the Martial Arts to help them manage the events in their lives. Concerning children, a solid moral core is one of the most important things a child can develop. They become better students, stronger family members, more loyal friends, and more responsible citizens. The Traditional Tae Kwon Do we teach at our school combines fun, fitness, and a strong core of values to keep kids positively entertained while helping them reach their fullest potential. Kids learn the idea of attention, discipline and respect towards seniors, teachers and parents. They study harder, focus better in class, and are more confident in social activities! Teens and Adults will find Traditional Martial Arts to be the best total body workout available today. The training is challenging, interactive, and educational while remaining balanced, and individualized to suit each students unique levels of fitness and experience. Benefits of continued training include increase in muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and coordination. Mental sharpness, concentration and reaction time will increase, because Traditional Training requires your mind to be alert, active, engaged, and aware during practice. Most importantly, students will develop a better satisfaction with life by forging new bonds of friendship, accomplishing goals and building self confidence, and releasing stress from the events of their lives. We believe in Martial Arts and business. But most importantly, we believe in helping each other, and we believe in growing together. Our #1 priority is to help people reach their goals through the Martial Arts. There is a significant difference that separates Dae Han from the rest of the crowd, our Attention to Quality. Dae Han is focused on the quality of our training, the quality of our methods and instructors, and the growth of each individual student. Every step we take is forward to better things, opening the path for our students to walk as well. We understand that in helping people to gain all the benefits of Martial Arts and to improve the quality of their lives, we are also growing as a school.

Hope everyone is doing OKAY in this tough time.
I have been coming to my office over the weekend and seating in the empty Do Jang. A chain of thoughts was going through in my mind positive and negative renders of reality, but one thing that I know is that we will go through this and see the lights at the end of the tunnel. This is a time to be strong and positive. Keep your guards up and fight!
I have been reading so many emails from students and parents; encouraging words, showing love and care for Dae Han. It helps me to move forward strong and sound. Those of you who I didn’t personally respond to your email, I apologize. I thank you all!!!
I am thinking of a few options for virtual classes, and we are going to try sometime this week. Please pay attention to future emails for the directions.

Thank you all, hang tight!!!

Dae Han Martial Arts - Improving the quality of life

Dear Dae Han Families,
We’re very sad to say that we’ve decided to cancel all classes for now starting Saturday, March 21, 2020 until further notice.
Here are some of the questions you would have.
What is going to happen with your membership?
All daehan student’s membership will be remaining the same. However, due to this unforeseen situation about COVID-19, we will extend all memberships accordingly. So, this means that all of your membership statuses will be active along with payment for the duration of your membership term. Here are some examples; If Dae Han would be closed for one month, and your membership expiration date is December 31, 2020, your membership then will be extended to Jan 31, 2021. And you are not going to be paying the extended month because you have already paid during COVID-19 shut down. If you have paid in full membership, your membership will be simply extended for an extra month.
What is going to happen with training?
We don’t want anyone to stop training, especially during a time like this when you have to keep your immune system strong. We are looking into a few different options: virtual classes with an online system, or having an outdoor class at Dojang 4 on the grass or a park. More details will be announced. Please use our website to go over all of your techniques and forms daily. www.daehanma.com
What is going to happen with Belt Tests?
Yes, private belt tests will be scheduled as students request. Attendance requirements for each rank will be voided during this time. Students must know their hand techniques, kicking techniques, and their form before requesting a private test. Private tests can be done virtually or at Dae Han.
All teams (elite team, demo team, sparring team, poomsae team) will be canceled until further notice.
The gym will be closed until further notice.
If you have any more questions, please send us an email or call at (770) 919-1112. I will check emails multiple times a day and the Dae Han phone will be forwarded to my cell phone.

I would like to send my gratitude to all my Dae Han Families for supporting and understanding
Please be safe,
Master Seo


Temporary weekly schedule as follows. Let us know if you have any questions!

You may be able to return to class after 2-3 weeks of self-examining and self-monitoring.
Please understand the following precautions we are taking:
• Water fountains will be shut down, please bring your own water bottle daily

• Dae Han open hours will be changed: Monday – Friday opens 2 pm – 8 pm, Saturday opens 9 am – 12 pm
Please know that the health and safety of our students and staff, including my own family, are my top priority. We will take the highest level of sanitary precautions to keep all of us safe from little bugs.
