Unlike some martial arts, Rhee Taekwondo is a traditional and non-competitive art. The emphasis is on building your individual physical and mental confidences through the study of the art. Rhee Taekwondo is regarded as one of the most comprehensive, dynamic and effective arts of self defence in this day and age. You will not only learn more about your whole self but also feel the real confidence of being able to defend yourself and your family.
Rhee Taekwondo martial arts school
World Master Chong Chul Rhee founded Rhee Taekwondo Australia in 1965. Two of his brothers later joined him in 1970, Master Chong Hyup Rhee and Master Chong Yoon Rhee and assist him in managing parts of the school. The Rhee Taekwondo School has been run continuously under Master Rhee in Australia since 1965. As a result of World Master Chong Chul Rhee’s efforts and unwavering dedication to the students of Rhee Taekwondo the school has grown over those years to become Australia’s largest martial arts school.
World Master Chong Chul Rhee has taught the original Taekwondo style as he learnt as a young man in his native Korea and taught as a South Korean Marine to the military – fast, powerful, effective self-defence. This dedication to the original way has significantly contributed to the wide spread popularity and strength of the Rhee Taekwondo school in Australia and New Zealand.
World Master Chong Chul Rhee visits Rhee Taekwondo regions (geographical dojang groups) to conduct grading exams quarterly. This way Master Rhee keeps kup/grade/belt standards high. Students are aware of what is expected by their Sabum (teacher) and they practice to meet those standards, those students that have not reached expected Rhee Taekwondo kup/grade standards are not promoted in rank and advised positively on what they must practice on for next grading assessment in 3 months.
The Rhee Taekwondo school runs by martial etiquette and Dojangs have order and respect so all students (from 5 years of age to 85 years of age) may learn with confidence in a positive and safe environment. Rhee Taekwondo is a martial arts organisation and not a social club, our focus is for students to practice the martial art correctly to learn effective self-defence, grow strong both mentally and physically while learning the martial way under the supervision of their Sabum (teacher) and Master Rhee. These critical factors will ensure Rhee Taekwondo’s ongoing success and stability for all members into the next century.
