Why is the Academy called ‘Maeng Ho’?


The founder of Maeng Ho Taekwondo Academy is Grandmaster Sung Bok Joo.  An accomplished Taekwondo instructor, who in his earlier days became Taekwondo state champion three times in South Korea.  Upon completion of his training, his master gave the name ‘Maeng Ho’ (meaning fierce tiger) as a gift to use for his own Taekwondo Academy.  This was due to Grandmaster Joo’s fearless and powerful martial art nature.
