I am so impressed with how Kang’s has adapted to the quarantine. Their Virtual Classes are AMAZING!! I even join sometimes with my son and we have a blast together while we get a great workout. They have warm-up videos you watch before the class starts so they can spend more time instructing (unless it’s the classes for littler kids that need more direction then they do warm up during class). The classes are live and the instructor can see the kids and correct their form. I am shocked at how much my son is learning virtually. But that’s not all - They have competitions like their Virtual Galactic Tournament where they encouraged all the kids to enter and they were incredibly supportive. I couldn’t believe they got my shy son to enter the competition, and he ended up making it to the Championships! They also have a Workout of the Day and Chore of the day where the kids get new workouts and a chore every day where they can earn points to get prizes - highly motivating! They also play a lot of games and truly make learning fun. They are always changing things up and making it interesting. I am so happy to have found them. They are such wonderful, kind, talented people and they have welcomed us in. I am so grateful for this virtual opportunity to give my son something healthy and physical to do, especially during this difficult time. Thank you so much Kang’s!!

We have been impressed by Kang´s since the first time we worked with them for a birthday party. Our love for the owners, staff, and programs has only increased since then. This is truly a community committed to helping students grow as both athletes and people. Moreover, the opportunities that they have provided to students during quarantine have been stellar.

I've been at Kang's for almost a year now. It was my first step back into the world of taekwondo after a four year break, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the school. I've trained in taekwondo on and off for over forty years, and have been to my share of schools over the years, some good, some not so much. While I do hold a black belt, it is in a different style of taekwondo (KKW/WTF) than what Kang's teaches.

Kang's has a good, healthy training environment, with a good number of very engaged black belt level students who have remained, and who do a lot to make new students feel welcome, and who serve as mentors to the colored belt students.

Master Malakoff and his wife run an excellent program, and maintain a training environment that encourages each student to achieve and to excel. If you're in the Olney/Sandy Spring/Ashton area, and are looking for a good taekwondo school, look no further; you've found it at Kang's.

Both of my children have been taking lessons here for nearly 5 years. The staff is incredible and have taught my children discipline and respect. I highly recommend Kangs.

I️ am so grateful to Kang’s Black Belt Academy. Master Mark & Ms. Mary Ann came to a blood drive that I️ coordinated, setting up a fun obstacle course and sharing valuable life lessons. The kids, & parents loved it! I’ve never seen that many kids hyped up on sugar/cookies, sit that still for a story!

If you have yet to check out their program, PLEASE give them a call, they are absolutely the best.
