The Father of Taekwon-Do
Mr. Chong Chul Rhee, founder of Taekwon-Do in Australia. The Master Instructor and Chief Instructor for Australia and New Zealand, he is also the President of the Taekwon-Do Instructors’ Federation of Australia and New Zealand.
Mr. 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.
Mr. Rhee developed and taught special unarmed combat methods to the Marine Commandos, the elite Commandoes’ underwater demolition team, Marine Brigade Headquarters and Marino 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.)
Mr. Chong Chul Rhee then spent some years in South East Asia – including Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Brunei and other countries – spreading the Art of Taekwon-Do.
Taekwon-Do is booming in these countries today and many thousands of students are reaping the benefits of Mr. Rhee’s dedication to the Art. Since introducing the Art of Taekwon-Do in Australia, Mr. Chong Chul 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 Taekwon-Do to millions of television viewers.
Through unending hard work and perseverance Mr. Rhee has established a very strong foundation for the art of Rhee Taekwon-Do with the assistance of a massive network of black belt assistant instructors. Mr. Rhee’s wealth of technical and teaching experience and highly skilled technique have contributed substantially to Rhee Taekwon-Do’s dynamic expansion throughout Australia and New Zealand.
