World Master Rhee

World Master Chong Chul Rhee, founder of Taekwondo in Australia, head of the Rhee Taekwondo Organisation, Master Instructor and Chief Instructor for Australia and New Zealand, he is also the President of the Taekwondo Instructors’ Federation of Australia and New Zealand.

World Master Rhee acquired vast international experience before coming to Australia. He was a leading instructor of the Korean Marines, Police Force, students at universities and colleges and members of the public. World Master Rhee developed and taught special unarmed combat methods to the Marine Commandos, the elite Commandoes’ underwater demolition team, Marine Brigade Headquarters and Marine 2nd Infantry Divisions. (The Korean Marines earned a reputation as the world’s most feared and courageous troops. Nicknamed ‘The Demon Hunter Marines”, they were easily recognised on the battle fields and were the most disciplined, daring and highly efficient elite of the armed forces.)

World Master Rhee then spent some years in South East Asia – including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Brunei and other countries – spreading the Art of Taekwondo. Taekwondo is booming in these countries today and many thousands of students are reaping the benefits of World Master Rhee’s dedication to the Art. Since introducing the Art of Taekwondo in Australia, – World Master Rhee has led hundreds of demonstrations throughout the nation. He has demonstrated the Art at universities, colleges, Air Force bases, Army and Police academies, and to the public. He has been featured in countless newspaper and magazine articles and brought the spectacular Art of Rhee Taekwondo to millions of television viewers.

Through unending hard work and perseverance World Master Rhee has established a very strong foundation for the art of Rhee Taekwondo with the assistance of a massive network of black belt assistant instructors. World Master Rhee’s wealth of technical and teaching experience and highly skilled technique have contributed substantially to Rhee Taekwondo’s dynamic expansion throughout Australia and New Zealand.

History of Rhee Taekwondo

Approximately 1300 years ago, during the Silla Dynasty in Korea, an ancient form of unarmed combat – known in those days as Tae-Kyon – evolved.

The ancient Art of Tae-Kyon is now widely dispersed throughout the world and known as various forms of Taekwondo.

The definition of RHEE TAEKWONDO involves dynamic techniques of unarmed combat for self-defensive purposes, combining the skilled application of powerful punches, flying kicks, blocks, dodges and interceptions. The Rhee Taekwondo practitioner uses well-trained hands, arms and feet to effect the rapid destruction of any attacker.

Rhee Taekwondo is most assuredly a dynamic and extremely effective Martial Art – more valid in the violent times in which we live than ever before.

But the Art reaches much further than mere combat effectiveness.

The discipline, mental training and varied techniques of Rhee Taekwondo also provide the grounds for engendering in the practitioner a strong sense of humility and resolve.

It is this vital mental conditioning that separates the true practitioner from one who has mastered only the physical aspects of the art.

Expertly taught by qualified instructors, regular practice of Rhee Taekwondo ensures limitless benefits for a fulfilling Way of Life.
