    Teaching Martial Arts with a Commitment to Excellence and with Pure Spirit

    Most martial arts schools today are very limited in several critical areas – in size, instructor resources, class offerings – and usually only able to appeal to a small sector of the population, predominantly kids.  Asheville Sun Soo Martial Arts is different.  We are amazingly abundant in all areas of practitioner experience, including a state-of-the-art 12,500 sf facility,  an extensively and ongoingly well-trained large adult instruction staff, over 40 classes/week, 9 different class types, a robust and extensive curriculum, industry-leading technical and professional standards, serving a very large and diverse student base of several hundred kids, teens and adults – ranging in age from 3 to 80!   We are not a multi-location school, nor have we bought into a national franchise.  Because we care at the highest level for all of our students, we are a single location, destination, headquarter location, with all of our resources in one place. This way our students and families have access to and benefit from all that we offer.  We are a one-of-a-kind martial arts school, dedicated to personal development – through a traditional, highly organized, structured, intentional, clear,  rigorous and disciplined practice – locally home-grown and fully committed to making a difference in our amazing Asheville Community.   We invite you and your family to come practice with us to become your best self!

    Adult & Family Beginner Rank Classes

    White Belt Only Classes, Ages Unlimited

    Our mission to make the greatest positive difference for the greatest number of people starts at the very beginning of each student’s practice.

    Twice a week, we offer an Adult-White-Belt-Only Tae Kwon Do class to allow adults early in their practice to receive instruction at an exceptionally focused and measured pace. This additional instruction helps them create sound fundamentals to support them in their primary and faster paced mixed-rank classes. Adult White Belt Only classes also feature support by a large number of more experienced color belts and black belts who attend to offer their assistance. From the very beginning, our adult students are off to a great start technically in a welcoming and encouraging community. We have a high participation rate in our adult classes.

    We find Traditional Tae Kwon Do (Korean Karate) helps students of all ages.

    Adult and Family Mixed Rank Classes

    Ages Unlimited

    At Asheville Sun Soo, our Adult/Family Mixed Rank classes are inviting and exciting, with all ranks and experience levels working together in a family-friendly atmosphere to serve our extensive adult population while also providing opportunities for entire families to practice together. We know that parents and children often look for ways of engaging they can share, but it is often difficult to find common ground that everyone both enjoys and benefits from. These classes offer just that! Working on their martial arts practices together is an amazing opportunity and experience for many families. Teens and younger children may join their parents in these classes, making it possible to spend family time together while getting fit and learning practical self-defense – all at the same time!

    These highly aerobic classes provide a full-body workout, including cross-training with equal attention to upper and lower body, as well as to the left and right sides of the body. Each class is mentally and physically stimulating, emotionally stress-relieving and empowering, leaving students feeling better than they did when they walked in – each and every time – while helping them develop excellent self-defense skills in the process. Our Adult/Family Mixed Rank classes are facilitated by full-time instructor teams, assisted by multiple black belts and led 50% of the time by 8th degree founder and resident Grandmaster Instructor Tony Morris.
