At Kenyon's Soo Bahk Do we are committed to the principle goal of martial arts as stated by our founder Grandmaster Hwang Kee, to develop physical skills and techniques while at the same time developing their character. Since 1968, Kenyon's Soo Bahk Do has been providing quality martial arts instruction in the Pacific Beach area. For 23 years, Studio owner and Master Instructor Daymon Kenyon (7th Degree) has carried on the tradition started by his father, the late Master Fred Kenyon.

In 1986, he was overall Grand Champion in the Tang Soo Do International Championships held in England. Shortly after his father's passing in 1988, he earned his 4th Degree by successfully completing the grueling eight-day examination required by the U.S Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Fed. for this rank.
