• Hopkins Olympic Taekwondo ("HOT"), which is a subsidiary of the US Taekwondo Academy at Johns Hopkins University, was founded by Master Joseph Pirczhalski III and Master CJ Chang in 2002. Due to the highly interactive martial arts semester-based classes fused with olympic-style sport training, our program at the Johns Hopkins University has been ranked #1 in the US as a Collegiate Taekwondo Program within one year of our inception. From the self-defense to the exciting and rigorous training in physical fitness, HOT has become the new phenomena at Johns Hopkins University.
