Rhee Taekwondo is a traditional, non-competitive martial art aimed at self defence training. Victoria’s Master Chong Hyup Rhee is one of the 12 original “Masters of Tae Kwon Do” sent by the Korean Tae Kwon Do Association in the 1960s to take the martial art to the rest of the world. His brother, Master Chong Chul Rhee, is known as the Father of Australian Taekwondo for introducing the art to the country.

- Fitness and good health
- Self defence
- Self control
