We are a Taekwondo school who places character first and skill second. Our students learning and satisfaction will always be top priority.
Master Bronson Ko founded Ko Martial Arts (KOMA) in Overland Park, Kansas in 2006. He began his Taekwondo training under his father at the age of four. He is a native of Overland Park and a business school graduate from the University of Kansas. He has a genuine desire for helping people find their better selves through martial arts. Master Ko holds a fifth degree black belt in Taekwondo, issued by the Kukkiwon in Korea.
The core of our school is the art and culture of the Korean martial art, Taekwondo (or Tae Kwon Do). We believe these two factors are what help change people for the better and help them become better citizens for society. Character development and life skills are the utmost priorities in our programs for children and teens. All of our programs, including the adult program, stress learning the details and intricacies of the art of Taewkondo. Every instructor at KOMA is certified and teaches Taekwondo based on the concepts of the Kukkiwon and World Taekwondo Federation in Korea. We constantly update our knowledge so our students are receiving the best Taekwondo available.
We understand that the art of Taekwondo is not completely reliable in terms of real world self defense. To fill this gap in our programs we have added boxing and jiujitsu. Boxing is great for hand eye coordination as well as for stand up defense. Jiujitsu was designed for ground defense and giving the smaller opponent an advantage. Even though we teach basic fighting techniques, we are not an MMA (mixed martial arts) school and never will be.
All of our Taekwondo programs and classes are based on age and level. This means beginners will get the attention they need while advanced students will learn the necessary details of complex techniques. We also don't believe in contracts. We want you to stay because you're happy, not because of a legal contract.
The Tykes, preschool program helps the younger students learn to follow directions, cooperate with others, and self control. They will also improve their balance and coordination through fun Taekwondo drills and games.
The Super Tykes program is the next step towards earning the official Taekwondo white belt. Students will learn more complex techniques while developing strong fundamentals and character.
The Core program is specially designed for students first - fifth grade. Now that the road is set for black belt, they will develop solid character and learn important life skills. With each belt comes a new and fun challenge.

The Dynamics program was created to accommodate the complex minds and needs of today's young adults. Developing a strong moral compass while keeping a healthy body are some of the focuses in this class.
The Active program is for professional adults who are tired of the gym and ready for a new challenge. The curriculum is designed to help adults achieve black belt without physical injury. Classes are fun and tailored to all levels.
Our competition program is top notch and has produced numerous national and international medalists. Not only will students learn how to become a world class competitor, they will improve as a whole too.
We are offer many camps through out the school year as well during summer break. Not only are our camps fun but they are educational as well. From taking field trips to cooking classes, our camps are the best in town.
We have partnered with the Boy and Girl Scouts of America to offer a special character badge workshop for no charge. Scouts will learn how to develop character through basic martial arts drills as well as breaking a real board!
Our birthday parties include a fun Taekwondo class, tons of exciting games, and a board breaking performance by the birthday boy/girl. Enjoy our spacious lobby for cake and presents. We will take care of the clean up!
