Taekwondo - Our Grandmaster, Chun Lee

Grandmaster Chun Woo Lee is a 9th dan Black belt under the World Taekwondo Federation. He first started training in Taekwondo at the age of six. He trained in the art of Mu Do Kwan and later Oh Do Kwan where he flourished. The Oh Do Kwan was a military Kwan (Kwan meaning school) headed by General Choi Hong Hi. General Choi is widely regarded as the founding father of Taekwondo. It was General Choi who gathered and united the existing kwans to standardize the art of Taekwondo and with it bring national pride to Korea after having been liberaed from Japanese occupation. General Choi came up with the name Taekwondo and formed the Korean Taekwondo Association (KTA).

While in the Oh Do Kwan, Grandmaster Lee was under the tutelage of Woo Jong Rim an instructor under General Choi. Grandmaster Lee was part of a Korean delegation sent over to Vietnam to instruct special forces there. He was also part of the Korean demonstration team where he was the one asked to perform the death defying kicks like executing a flying side kick over a moving motorcycle to break boards. He is a former Korean national champion and is a master in the art of Hapkido. Grandmaster Lee is well respected in the martial arts community. Although, he's not one to look for recognition or fame, many other well respected masters respect him. He is a man whom truly abides by the tenets of Taekwondo. Our Grandmaster, both honorable, humble and a man of faith.
