Taekwondo is not just self-defense or sport...it's a way of life.
Grandmaster Lee has been a second father to me. His influence has helped shaped my life and made me the person I am today.
Master Instructor - Eric Amundson
Master Lee is amazing, and so is his wife, and all of the other Masters. They taught me so much and I still to this day live by everything they have taught me. I am honored to say that I was taught by Master Lee, and I would never send anybody anywhere else.
Grand Master Choon Lee has developed so many people through the years and helped so many people grow to the next level. I am so proud of him and Mrs. Lee. There is not enough that can be said or done to show the appreciation of the thousands of students they have taught through the years. I feel honored to have been one of the students he helped to become a black belt. I love Mr. And Mrs. Lee like parents!
My son, Jackson, tested yesterday after only being a student for two weeks. He absolutely loved it, performed flawlessly, and didn't want to leave. He's eager to see how he did and I'm incredibly happy he's found something he truly loves and WANTS to do! I mean, he woke me up at 7am yesterday to practice before the test smile emoticon Makes my heart happy knowing this means so much to him!
Every class is a test of my ability to preserver, to push myself harder, to improve myself. It's what I look forward to the most each week.
