Grunts and smacks against protective padding sounds throughout the Korean Martial Arts Center. Grand Master Merrill Jung, the studio’s founder, paces the padded floor while attentively observing that his students are using proper form.

What was once just extracurricular work to give back to the community blossomed into a staple in Ingleside where hundreds of children, youth and adults learn martial arts and the benefits of discipline and focus.
