— “Marital” and “martial” differ in the placement of a single letter. So it’s rather fitting that a married couple — newlyweds, no less — will soon be running Kwon’s Karate Studio, a martial arts mainstay in New Hampton for more than a decade.

Esther Kwon, daughter of studio founder Master H.Y. Kwon, will begin teaching there in September. Her co-instructor will be her husband, Wook Soo Kim.

The couple met in Korea several years ago and married in Goshen in March. They are both master-level instructors in the traditional Korean martial art of Soo Bahk Do.

For more information, contact Master Esther at 845-374-3700.
