that site says south australia and those BB r all from around South australia, 20 BB promoted in 1 year doesnt sound all that many to me in the whole of south australia. Master Rhee does not have an official website at all, u will find many different sites and thy are from all round asutralia, keep searching on the net and ull see wat i mean :P

Well let me put it this way then. This site bares his name and is promoting his schools, there is misinformation on the site as well as lack of information on the site. No one is stating that they are displaying this site on his behalf or w/o his knowledge. If he does not make the claims that are on the site, he should state so publicly as so he is not judged by them. If he lets them stand as such, then it should be safe to assume that he does not dispute them.

Well I can not speak to whether he was the pioneer or father of TKD in Ausralia. I will attempt to find out more. However, I find no record of Master Rhee, Chong Chul from 1984 forward. It should be noted that a Master Yun, Young Kyu, an early disciple of the Founder, first in Malyasia, then Australia, was an 8th degree back in 1984. I believe he is in the enclylopedia. He seperated from the ITF later on. Also, there was a Rhee, Young Choi, from Windsor, Canada as well & I am sure there were others.
I don't know what defines father or pioneer, I guess the first or trailblazer. He would be in the running, if he was in Australia in the 1960s. It would be interesting to know more. By the looks of the website, he was either ITF or Chang Hon at some dated point.

10 months? 2nd kub? It took me 11 years to become black belt hahaha (ok I took a break of 2 years when I was 14) but still... damn

That sounds plausible. It took me 9 years. I'd say that 4-5 is standard though. It varies from school to school, there are different standards everywhere.

Seriously, does anyone really care when he gets his black belt? As long as the quality of instruction is decent (which only Jasper, or someone else in his class, can say) then I really don't get this obsession with a piece of cloth. Many Korean schools have a short amount of time to get a black belt too (2 years or so). For the record, a black belt means you are a good student who as got a hold on the basics; not that you are a superb fighter. I can't help but feel people are getting in a twist over a totally irrelevent matter.

I agree Tim. Poor old jaspa just comes on to say and introduce himself and immediately gets the rubber glove treatment about his club and master.

No wonder so few people fill in profiles.

practice doesn't make perfect, it only makes us better. Perfection does not exist, unless it is someone's personal view of their Creator.

BB can mean a lot of things to many different people. I do share your idea that is is a beginning, someone who has grasped the basics.
Happy New Year!
