Paks Gym Brings Korean Flavor to Springfield

Paks Gym, which is situated at the Corner of East 7th and Walnut Streets, is bringing some Korean flavor to the Springfield community through its martial arts and exercise programs. Operated by Springfield resident Don Justice, the small gym has become a popular spot for many neighborhood residents and children looking to add some exercise and discipline to their lives.

While looking for ways to help my youngest daughter and I get some exercise together, I thought of Paks Gym. Having attended the gym for its Tuesday and Thursday morning boot camp sessions a number of times, I knew it would be a great environment to learn in for both my seven-year-old daughter, and myself.

When we arrived Monday afternoon to observe a class in progress, we were thrilled to see so many of our neighbors there, including several father/child combinations. 

Justice, who once tried out for a popular island based reality show, does a great job of mixing discipline with positive motivation. Teaching the Korean Martial art of Tang Soo Do, Mr. Justice also focuses on over all physical wellness, and teaches his students that he watches over, that exercise and fitness are very important part of being able to protect yourself.
