Our Story

World Champion TaeKwonDo was opened in 2017 by Master Kris Hyun and his beautiful family. Having studied TaeKwonDo in Korea since the age of 3, Master Kris has developed not only a love for the sport, but a love for developing children through the teachings of TaeKwonDo.

Master Kris also has a passion for soccer! He was actually a semi-professional soccer player who traveled the world playing soccer. He likes to teach the students how your training in TKD can overall benefit your fitness and athleticism for all sports!

Master Kris is a husband to Areum and father of three (Ethan, Yena, and Yehjin). His passion for TKD, kids, and family is clear in everything he does. When you join WCT Brookfield, you become part of the Hyun family and the WCT Brookfield community.

Mission Statement

Through Taekwondo training, we strive to develop the full potential in our students, enabling them to embrace the challenges of life more successfully, while setting the highest standard of excellence. World Champion Taekwondo will provide unparalleled Taekwondo martial arts training throughout Connecticut and all 50 States of the United States of America with top world champion Master Instructors with a minimum of 4th Degree Black Belt. All the Master Instructors have been chosen and trained by Grand Master Park before establishing their own schools. This will be done while maintaining the main Taekwondo training focus: respect, discipline, confidence, and self-confidence. WCT students will learn more than basic techniques of self-defense, they will learn the five benefits of Taekwondo which are the cornerstones of the philosophy that embody the art: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and determination. WCT Masters will develop in every student a strong sense of self-confidence while maintaining the Taekwondo training focus: respect and discipline.
