Grandmaster Han Cha Kyo
Han Cha Kyo
Born : 1934 in Seoul, South Korea
There are only a few ninth dan masters in the world. Han Cha Kyo was one of the great ones. Despite his international reputation and world renowned achievements, Grandmaster Han remained a humble teacher and could be found most days in the dojang, teaching Chung Do Kwan, traditional Taekwon-Do, to his students.
Han Cha Kyo was born in Seoul, South Korea on July 20, 1934. He was a student of the martial arts for most of his life. In Korea, Han Cha Kyo trained under three masters, including Grandmaster Nam Tae Hi. Master Han rose rapidly in the ranks. Together with General Choi, Master Nam and others, Grandmaster Han was instrumental in the development of modern Taekwon-Do as it is practiced throughout the world today. He offered a wealth of experience as an instructor, administrator and promoter of Taekwon-Do and health. Throughout his years of service, he continued to revise and refine his ideas about martial arts and health.
