Teaching From The Heart

Our Passion Is For Martial Arts Education

We’re driven and determined to do more for our students. We’re not just teaching them about martial arts; we’re teaching them about life. And that’s where our passion lies.

For us, creating a community starts with inspiring individuals to bring out the best in themselves. That passion has helped us forge an outstanding, inclusive space for our students — and we can help you do the same.

Martial Arts And Much More

Developing leaders and instilling values are at the core of the KOMA approach. Our students learn life skills that will guide them through every challenge and inspire them through any adversity.

When you open your own Ko Martial Arts franchise, you become an integral part of that education for every student in your community. And, as part of the KOMA family, you can achieve your own entrepreneurial goals in the process.

Inclusivity And Equality

Everyone has a place at Ko Martial Arts. Whether students are young or old, have special needs or require individual attention, have never thrown a punch or are one step away from a black belt, we can help bring out their best.

Our franchisees can become fixtures in their communities, drawing in everyone who wants to live their own vision of the black belt life.

“I've known Master Ko (Bronson) for many years, trained under both him and his father. Bronson has one of the best schools in Kansas City. He truly cares about his students’ growth and well-being.”

Brian Thomas

"We have had an absolutely wonderful experience at KOMA. Master Ko and his instructors take the time to get to really know each child and their strengths, areas they need work on and their interests. There is nothing quite like watching your child learn new things and work on them with such excitement and pride."

Amy Kapsalis

"We pass many other studios on our dive there that are closer, but we love everything about KOMA so much that we think it's worth the extra drive. Everyone demands respect, but they are patient, kind and respectful to everyone while they do it and throughout their teaching and interactions with students and parents. We love KOMA and can't imagine going anywhere else!"

"We started with Ko Martial Arts a little over a year ago and have been very impressed with the level of progress our child has made, behaviorally and with his gross motor skills. You get a very individualized experience at Ko even though you are in a group of 5-15. All instructors address my child by name and have built a relationship with him, which encourages him to want to come back each week."

"KOMA is an amazing place. We have two daughters in their programs and love the Owner, Master Ko, and the staff. We feel that KOMA is preparing our daughters for much more than self-defense. We enrolled them just to work on their self-defense skills, but Master Ko and his team are teaching self-confidence, performing in front of a crowd, and persevering....all in a warm and positive environment."

Tom Herhusky

"I started Taekwondo at Ko Martial Arts when I was 6 years old (10 years ago). Now at the age of 16, I have earned my 3rd degree black belt and have become an Assistant Instructor at the studio. Ko Martial Arts has given me strength, confidence, responsibility and most importantly the will to do good in the community as a straight A student and role model."

Past, Present And Future

We’ve mastered this model over years of training and determination. Our founder, Master Bronson Ko, took the knowledge he learned at his father’s martial arts academy, combined it with his business and marketing know-how and turned it all into a franchise system that’s well-prepared to build character one black belt at a time.
