Interview with Instructor Phillip Rhee

Master Phillip Rhee began martial arts at the age of 4. Raised in San Francisco, he and his brother Simon both trained with Master Mark Choi, brother of Master Seo Choi, who was Jun Chong and Bruce Lee’s Master in Hapkido. Check out his website here.

His Background:
An instant bond was made between Master Jun Chong and the Rhee brothers when they traveled to Los Angeles to help teach classes at his new school. It was in Los Angeles that Master Rhee got into filmmaking by being an extra in Master Jun Chong’s earlier films. Since then, he has gone on to become a film actor, director, writer, and producer and is responsible for creating the “Best of the Best” film franchise. Through his many successes, he has still stayed committed to teaching at Jun Chong Tae Kwon Do and considers Master Jun Chong as his martial arts master, mentor and big brother.
His Teaching Philosophy:
To teach harmony between Mind, Body and Spirit through the martial arts.

What to Expect in His Classes:
Hard work… Fun and discipline.
