Creating Good Citizens, Good Manners, and Good Values
By: M. Callahan
Lee’s Hapmudo Martial Arts Studio has been a fixture in Annandale for decades providing classes for adults as well as children. Located in the Annandale Shopping Center on Columbia Pike, Grand Master Lee believes that the study of Martial Arts is a method of living as well as an art. He wants his students to study the philosophies of Martial Arts through which they will master good manners and the values needed to achieve happiness in everyday life and to become true friends and good citizens. Frequently, the students display their community commitment with energetic demonstrations at events such as the Spring Bed Race and other Annandale and Metropolitan area events. Master Lee practices what he teaches, regularly giving back to the community; he exemplifies the term, "good citizen."
Lee’s Hapmudo offers various styles of training in Hapkido, Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Jujitsu, Aidido, Kendo, and Judo. In his many years of teaching, Grand Master Lee has helped his students overcome and improve problems such as asthma, chronic back pain, and addiction. Students are taught to develop self-discipline and self control. Perhaps his proudest achievement is the number of children he has helped with learning disabilities and other scholastic behavior problems.
Classes are offered during the day and in the evenings along with summer camps. An excellent after school program offers homework assistance and transportation from school. Discounts are also provided for law enforcement, military personnel, and families.
