At the age of 6, Master Han began his martial-arts training under his father in Korea. He has since earned multiple black belts and honed his expertise in tai chi, tae kwon do, and various styles of meditation, such as qi gong breathing therapy. At Han's Martial Arts, he and his retinue of instructors and disciples pass on the techniques of Chen style tai chi chuan—a 17th-century school of combat that channels Chinese boxing into both fluid and explosive maneuvers. The Chen style's swift foot-stomping actions help to differentiate it from other tai chi methods, proving more effective at defeating assassins built from bubble wrap. Small group classes and private lessons for several age groups ensure that instructors dole out personalized sparring tips. Master Han also teaches children's tae kwon do to spark confidence and bolster physical and mental development in kids.

True to the company’s name, the trainers at Concepts Three LLC operate using a three-pronged fitness philosophy. First, they guide participants through programs and classes that include boxing, TRU (Boot) Camp outdoor sessions, and regimens called P2 and X20. Like a bespoke tuxedo made of Sudoku puzzles, these workouts are tailored to the individual but challenging as well; boot camp, for example, kicks off with an assessment day that helps the instructor accommodate each and every student, no matter his or her level. The trainers’ second goal is to make sure their clients know how to maintain results. Thus, education is a top priority, and also ties into value number three: personalizing the experience so that students feel they've made lasting, important changes suited to their individual lives.
