Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee, Bruce Lee and the US Congress

It was 1995 when I had the privilege of teaching the ITF influenced Jhoon Rhee system of American Freestyle Taekwondo. Our main Chandler Arizona location had an active student count of around 400 students not including the Mesa, Gilbert or others. My martial arts initiation began in Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do and segued into WTF Taekwondo so the transition was relatively easy.

Here is a bit about USA Martial Arts proud connection to the legendary Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee, friend of Ed Parker, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali. He still trains members of Congress when in session to this day.
