MVK has been established in 1995 by Master Nicholas Koclanis of Chicago, IL. Master Koclanis, a first generation student, trained under Grand Master Chang Hae Choi of Chicago, IL.
At MVK you will experience the authentic Taekwondo system, dating back to the eighteenth century and passed on from Master to student. Master Koclanis is a true 5th Degree Black Belt Sabumnim granted by WTF Kukkiwon.
