World Master Chong Chul Rhee founded Rhee Taekwondo Australia in the late 196O's with the assistance of

Master Chong Hyup Rhee, Master Chong Yoon Rhee and Master Vernon Low. The RHEE TKD School has been
run continuously under Master Rhee in Australia since the late 1960's (40 years). As a result of World Master
Chong Chul Rhee's efforts and unwavering dedication to the students of RHEE Tae Kwon Do the school has
grown over those years to become Australia's largest martial arts school.

World Master Chong Chul Rhee has taught the original Tae Kwon Do 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 Tae Kwon Do school in Australia and New Zealand.

World Master Chong Chul Rhee visits Rhee TKD 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 Tae kwon Do 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 Tae Kwon Do school runs by martial etiquette, RHEE TKD Dojangs have order and respect so
all students (from 5 years of age to 65 years of age) may learn with confidence in a positive and safe
environment. Rhee Tae Kwon Do 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 Tae Kwon Do's ongoing success and stability for all members into the next
