Additional Helpers


Continuing the long tradition in martial arts, Master Lim has trained some of his senior students to assist and lead classes. They are committed students who bring energy, experience, and expertise to Master Lim’s classes. These helpers complement Master Lim’s teaching and make themselves available before and after classes to assist students with all aspects of Taekwondo.
