The Hwa Rang Do Los Angeles Academies (HRDLA) are eclectic martial arts schools, teaching the most comprehensive martial art in the world. We also maintain the high values and work ethics of classical Eastern philosophies.
The first Los Angeles location opened on June of 1994 under Grandmaster Taejoon Lee. Grandmaster Taejoon Lee is the eldest son of the Founder, Dr. Joo Bang Lee and the President of the World Hwa Rang Do Association. Supreme Grandmaster Dr. Joo Bang Lee currently teaches at the Hwa Rang Do Headquarters Academy in Tustin, CA. Instructor Jesus Hernandez heads the Norwalk Academy.
The HRDLA Academies are a reflection of Hwa Rang Do’s comprehensive worldview, understanding both the Oriental and Occidental social, political and philosophical perspectives, we have created a balanced and harmonious environment where its patrons can learn to appreciate the values of both Eastern and Western thought.
The goal here at our Academies is to understand balance, maximizing our human potentials, and ultimately, achieve harmony with the self, the humanity, the world, and the universe.
