Shin's Academy History

Shin's Academy History

Our school was founded in 1972 by Grandmaster Suk Ki Shin. After studying at the famous Yongin University in South Korea, Grandmaster Shin came to the United States to teach Judo. He later added Taekwondo and Hapkido classes and founded Shin's Academy. Since that time, Shin's Academy has taken the lessons and teachings of Grandmaster Shin and promoted over 500 students to black belt. Over 10,000 students from Nebraska, Arizona, Iowa and Colorado have learned the Martial Arts from Grandmaster Shin, his family, and his well qualified instructors.
