Farewell Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee

Tae Kwon do is without a doubt one of the flashiest and best looking martial arts styles, and no one did it better than Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee, who for all intents and purposes brought Tae Kwon Do to America, and even befriended Bruce Lee (and was rumored to have taught him a few things) Grandmaster Rhee only did one film, but it’s probably the best representation of the style you’ll ever see: When Taekwondo Strikes. Check out the trailer for the film below, and mourn a great loss to the martial arts world.

He was 86 years old. If you want to learn more about Grandmaster Rhee please head over to his website here.
