        Master Jo is well versed in World Taekwondo Poomsae as well as the new Poomsae (Bigak, Himchari, etc.). He studied in Korea from Master Ji, a former Korean national Poomsae competitor, and currently a Poomsae instructor for the Korean national competitors. Also, trained in Taekwondo and Hapkido under Grandmaster Hwang, a president of the Korea Hapkido Total Association

        In Canada, Master Jo continued to train Taekwondo under the direction of Grandmaster Jung (8th Dan), a former national competitor (both Korea and Canada), world champion, the Olympic medalist, and Canada national team head coach.  He also served as an instructor at Woo Yong’s Taekwondo Academy. He won a Silver Medal at the 2019 Canada Open International game and a Gold medal at the 2020, 2021, 2022 Korea Ambassador's Cup and the 2021 Grand Prix I and II competitions.

We are committed to being the best Taekwondo and Martial art school in Nova Scotia.

When it comes to describing our Taekwondo School, hear it from our students and parents. Take a look at their feedback below and learn all there is to know about learning at K-Top Taekwondo and Martial arts.

We’re always thrilled to hear back from current and former students, so reach out today!

"K-Top is such a wonderful environment. On our first visit, other parents of K-Top students told me how much we would love it here, and K-Top has exceeded expectations. It is immediately evident that Master Jo, Jenny and Anna care about each student and helping them reach their full potential. Every student gets exactly the amount of individual attention and support they need. The expectations are high, but Master Jo makes sure to meet my child exactly where he is. K-Top goes above and beyond. They make you feel welcome, and are truly invested in their students well being. The growth in my son, both physically, and with focus and self control has been amazing to witness. I have so much appreciation for the patience and hard work of K-Top Taekwondo and Martial Arts."
