The Complete Martial Art School

The Hwa Rang Do West Los Angeles Academy (HRDWLA) is a traditional martial arts school, which teaches and maintains the high values and moral ethics of classic Eastern philosophies. The school opened in 1994 by Grandmaster Taejoon Lee and is now headed by his pupil Instructor Antonio D. Goodwin, 2nd Degree Hwarangdo Black Sash.

Though the academy’s goals are serious, and the training rigorous, we make sure to provide a warm and friendly environment for all – men, women and children.

Children More Mature & Disciplined than Adults

My son absolutely loves Hwa Rang Do and what the Academy stands for. I’ve never seen him so dedicated to an activity and the children there are the most well behaved kids I”ve ever seen – more mature and disciplined than most adults. Bravo!

Mental & Spiritual Challenge

Even though I have been around for a long time, you impress me more and more every time I watch you perform. Your skills are unbelievable Sir! The students really were impressed not only by your physical skills, but by your mental/spiritual skills as well. You have a way of making us think deeper and more clearly about our Art and our life.

Thank you again for all you do for us and the Association.

Hwa Rang!
