About Master Park's Black Belt America in Freehold, NJ

Haeng Soon Park

Owner and Chief Instructor at Master Park's Black Belt America in Freehold, Black Belt

The first Master Parks school was created in 1989 in Emerson, New Jersey by Grandmaster Haeng Soon Park.

The family's Tae Kwon Do tradition began much earlier in Young Kwang, South Korea. Grandmaster Park, a Korean national champion, instructor in the Korean Police and Military academies and 8th Degree Black Belt, instilled in his sons a love of Tae Kwon Do. He fostered the commitment to continually strive to improve the physical, mental and social aspects of their lives. That philosophy is at the core of Shilla Warrior.

Grandmaster Park came to the United States in February 1986 and three years later he made the decision to return to his true passion Tae Kwon Do. In 1989 he opened the first of five schools.

Grandmaster Park, who began training in Tae Kwon Do at the age of 5, became very active within the U.S. Tae Kwon Do Union in 1990. He was instrumental in facilitating the growth of Tae Kwon Do in the United States. This involvement culminated with Grandmaster Park being named as the coach of the 1994 U.S. National Tae Kwon Do team.

In 2004, Grandmaster Park moved his family to Monmouth County, NJ and along with his sons, Masters Steve Park and Master Sunny Park, opened the first Master Park's Black Belt America in Marlboro, NJ. In a short period of time, Master Steve, a 6th Dan Black Belt and Master Sunny, a 5th Dan Black Belt assumed the lead role in day to day operations of the school.

They wanted their training exceed the basics of kicking and punching, they were driven to place a strong emphasis on the personal development of their students. Through Master Park's Black Belt America they do just that. They develop the self-confidence, focus, discipline, fitness, and self-esteem of their students.

The development of these personal attributes is inherent within all martial arts, but at Master Park's Black Belt America the instructors put a special emphasis on maximizing their students' potential in all aspects of their lives. That core goal has made the schools a favorite among students and parents and has led to the rapid growth of the organization.

To meet the demand for their training, in 2008 they added a second school in Freehold, New Jersey. Then in 2012 they added a location in Wall, New Jersey,in 2013 another location in Franklin Lakes New Jersey and in 2014 opened their fifth location in Morganville New Jersey and franchised their Family Martial Arts business model with Shilla Warrrior Martial Arts inc.

Master Park's Black Belt America and Shilla Warrior have created a community of committed and positive martial arts instructors and students who continually strive to improve the physical, mental and social aspects of their lives.
