K. S. Lee’s Best Martial Arts
Grandmaster Kang Seok Lee grew up in a small village in South Korea. He began his tae kwon do training at age 7, and shortly thereafter, got started with hapkido—a discipline designed to subdue adversaries by applying firm, focused pressure to specific joints. Kang was immediately drawn to the discipline, and eventually went on to win a world championship in hapkido in the 1970s, the same decade he and his family immigrated to the United States. The Tae Kwon Do Times featured him on their cover in 1996 and named him to their Tae Kwon Do Hall of Fame in 2006.
In 1986, Kang opened his first school, and in the years since has managed to build a team of instructors chosen not only for their skills, but also for their good character and caring attitudes. Together, Kang and his team continue the traditions formed over the course of tae kwon do’s 2,000-year history, inviting students to participate regardless of their age, size, or sympathetic feelings toward wooden blocks. The grandmaster and his associates lead a variety of programs that emphasize self-defense skills and personal development, including introductory and belt-level-specific classes.
