Martial Arts Education Society (MAES) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization devoted to bringing self-discipline and hope back to our communities. MAES aims to promote the positive values and cultures of martial arts education that allow positive role-modeling, moral leadership, and caring relationships to the general public.
In today's society, many of us focus heavily on fast-tracking and instant gratification; our mindset towards everyday living has changed. Traditional martial arts practice has been credited with various benefits such as physical fitness, health improvement, and stress relief for youth. An adaptable martial arts curriculum can help us improve our mind and body, develop ethical self-conduct, and build unity among members. MAES strives to improve the current practice of martial arts education.
MAES was established by William Kwok in 2018. He is a full-time teacher of traditional Taekwon-do and Practical Wing Chun Kung Fu. He is currently pursuing a Doctor of Education degree at Northeastern University and serving as the Co-chair of Harvard Alumni for Education in New York City.
