Taekwondo is a truly martial art and a compulsory part of the training schedule of every Korean soldier. It was in this environment that grand master Rhee began his training and came to be regarded as the number one pioneer instructor. He later being the first instructor to leave Korea for the purpose of teaching taekwondo worldwide.
Taekwondo was introduced worldwide by first grand master Rhee Ki Ha in 1967. During his journey, he founded the United Kingdom Taekwondo Association (UKTA). Master Rhee went on to the Republic of Ireland, and as well, formed taekwondo association in 1972 and the all European taekwondo association in 1979. He now is listed as the “founder of taekwondo in Great Britain and Ireland” in the taekwondo hall of fame.
Grand master Rhee was the first person ever promoted to IX Dan by General Choi on July 1, 1997, in Saint Petersburg, Russia and earned later the honorific title of the"first" grand master from that point onwards. The first grand master Rhee honours General Choi’s wishes by practicing and sharing taekwondo as laid out in the guidelines and by following the principles set forth in the student oath, the tenets of taekwondo, moral culture, and martial art ethics.
General Choi Hong Hi founded the International Taekwondo Federation (ITF) and brought taekwondo to fruition during the 1930’s and 1940’s until it was officially named by the Korean government on April 11, 1955. Through pioneering work of General Choi, taekwondo has grown and developed to become recognized as one of the most scientific of all the martial art disciplines.
