In the Community

Oom Yung Doe in the Community (Strengthening the Individual-Strengthening the Community)

The following is a short list of the hundreds of charities, community organizations, health and safety organizations and private companies that the schools have worked with throughout the country since being established here in 1972. Thousands of dollars have been raised to help the needy from these events. In addition, many of the schools throughout the country donated thousands of man-hours to hold public and private health or safety seminars. Many have benefited through the education they have gained in safety and self-defense skills, tai chi and meditation exercises. Multiple citations and awards have been presented to school owners throughout the country for their commitment to community service. It is our hope that our community is a better place to live because of our efforts. We would like to extend congratulations to everyone who has supported these events and we look forward to many more years of service to our communities.

Scholastic Achievement Awards:

Many students in the Oom Yung Doe style of martial arts challenge themselves to achieve academic excellence. These efforts are enhanced when the students’ academic schooling is balanced with Oom Yung Doe training to build the mental and the physical strength necessary to achieve their goals. The confidence gained from this strength can assist them in all aspects of daily life. The Oom Yung Doe Scholastic Achievement Award signifies scholastic excellence, which is one of the goals of the students who participate in Oom Yung Doe training. Students learn special movements tailored to guard against the stress and fatigue normally associated with studies and exams. With the increased level of mental endurance and acuity, these students have improved in their academic performance and overall personal ability. In addition to acknowledging the students, the Schools of Oom Yung Doe also applaud parents and family members who contributed greatly to the success of their children.


Hundreds of Scholastic Achievements have been awarded to students at all levels in the efforts to achieve excellence.
