Yoon’s Martial arts school was originally founded by Grand Master Byung ock Yoon. In 1947 he began his martial arts training, at the age of 7 in Seoul Korea. In 1963 Master Yoon opened his Academy called Yoon Mu Kwan Hoshindo. After serving in the Korean CIA, and CID, and operating a martial arts school in Korea, he decided to come to Canada and expand his art to the Canadian people. He passed his flourishing Korean school to two of his best students, and came to Calgary Alberta in 1975. Here, Master Yoon started the first HapKiDo academy in Canada.
Today Yoon’s Martial Arts School is headed By Instructor Bobby Triantafillou who has trained under Master Yoon for 30 consecutive years. Instructor Bobby continues to maintain Master Yoon’s level of excellence in teaching traditional virtues along with progressing and adapting other martial arts techniques in order to compliment the schools arts.

Very few martial arts programs can accomplish what ours can. With a focus and dedication to our material and our students, along with a very particular skill set that far exceeds that of other martial artists and instructors, we can truly teach you how to make a difference in your life. President Tom Gillis is a full time martial artist and combatives instructor. This in and of itself is unique and sets us apart from the competition. Rarely can martial arts teachers make a living off of that skill set. Accessing programs designed and taught by a full time martial artist means 100% of the instructors focus is on you. This is difficult for other martial arts programs who’s instructors work full time jobs and teaching, while a passion, is not their primary focus in life.
