Kim's Tae Kwon Do Ranier Valley is located on Rainier Avenue South at Waldon Street on the former Chubby & Tubby site. It is a four block walk to the Mt. Baker Light Rail station that takes you downtown in 15 minutes. Nearby schools include John Muir Elementary, Kimball Elementary and Franklin High School. The studio is equipped with air conditioning as well as fans to provide a comfortable environment.
The workout space is outfitted with Zebra Mats which were specifically developed for stand-up martial arts training such as Tae Kwon Do. The mats utilize a 14lb multiple foam density technology that provides shock absorption and impact protection. The 1" mats provide a firm surface for kicks and spins and are wrapped in a tatami-textured vinyl surface which allows for fast movement while providing sure footing.
There are two designated parking spots in the alley just west of the building between Rainier Ave S and Claremont Ave S for loading and drop off. S. Walden Street borders the building on the south side is a well lit area and can be used for drop off or street parking if available. Street parking is also available on the surrounding streets.
