Koryo Do is a school of martial arts, based in St. Augustine, FL. The school was founded by Grand Master Jose Delgado in 1990.
Martial Arts is, of course, the art of fighting and as a student at Koryo Do – you WILL learn how to fight. We do controlled sparring, practice self-defense skills, immobilization techniques, grappling, and defenses against multiple opponents… with knives, bats and various other weapons.
But while learning and practicing the martial arts, a funny thing happens. In China, they would call it Yin/Yang, or the law of opposites. In learning to fight… a student also learns how NOT to fight. Koryo Do encourages this inner growth and focuses onstrengthening both the body and the mind.
A dedicated student develops confidence, strength, endurance, self-discipline and self-respect; the Hallmarks of a True Martial Artist. Under the direction of its founder, Grand Master Jose I. Delgado, Koryo Do places its highest priority on the quality of instruction, not the quantity of students.
Prospective students are encouraged to meet with the Masters and participate in selected classes before joining the school. This trial period allows both the student and the school a chance to evaluate each other for compatibility.
Please call (904)-794-7830, or stop by Koryo Do between 5PM – 7PM, Monday through Thursday, for more information.
