'Tuls' are the forms/patterns of ITF taekwon-do.
There are no 'Dutch tuls', just tuls;)
I meant I got 1st place on the Dutch Open championship (in 2005)
Ow and yes, I've heard of Rhee taekwon-do before, but I think I saw it on the internet...

hahaha no i didint but good to hear it anywayz lol, my instructor thinks i should b able to go for my blackbelt in november of 2007 so that should b cool, i do Rhee Taekwon-Do i dont no if uve heard of it b4 but we practice non-contact full power sparring and we do not enter into competition at all. It is a pure martial art thats main objective is self-defence and defence of the weak. I'd b interested to no if u have ever heard of Rhee Taekwon-Do or of it's Founder Master Chong Chul Rhee and wat is the Dutch Tuls, out of curiosity?




Hi and welcome to the forums.

It doesn't strike me as odd anymore,but why such a rush to get blackbelt? Will you be any better after two years of training if you were still a whitebelt?

You have been training since February or March of 06' and will be testing for blackbelt in November 07'. That is just ludicrous. How much are you paying for your blackbelt?

I don't care how good you are or how much you train, that is pure mcdojoism.

O.K. ,

I held my tongue long enough ! I even PM'd another member of the forum as to my concern about Chong Chul Rhee (yes that is who he is refering to, not Jhoon Rhee)and as should I respond on the forum or not. My first red flag was the Brown belt after 10 mos and then the reference to the "Founder of TKD" in Austrailia. I googled Chong Chul Rhee's name and went to the website, www.rhee-taekwondo.com.au/ . They practice a portion of the Chang Hon ITF tuls.

Everything that Jasperdaman has stated is on the website, Self Defense, founder in Australia etc. etc. Now I apologize to jasperdaman for what I am about to say here as he seems to be very enthusiastic, but everything I read and see on the site says Mcdojang to me.

Mr. Rhee seems to be very physically gifted, but what he is teaching, at least forms wise is from the ITF and not orginal. It would be my guess that General Choi had somebody in Austrailia as an ITF Ambassodor to spread TKD, Whether or not it was Mr. Rhee, I do not know. Maybe Master Weiss or ITFunity can confirm this. I have had many conversations with ITF people from Austrailia via internet forums (and had the privledge of meeting one gentleman several years ago as he traveled thru the states), and Mr. Rhee's name never came up. The only Rhee I am familiar with is GM Rhee Ki Ha in Great Britain and GM Jhoon Rhee here in the states (yes, I am aware that there are probably hundreds, but as I said, with whom I am familiar).

My question to jasperdaman is, has your Mr. Rhee ever referenced to the General or Chang Hon ITF ? Has he given you the history of the patterns you are learning ? I am not looking to insult you or your instructor, but I have reservations as to what I saw on the site. Any insight you can lend would be very much appreciated.

Yes and he recently released a book about 1 or 2 years ago titled "Bruce Lee and I".

The more I look at this site the more bothered I become. I just finished looking at the "Womens self defense" page and it tells you that size and strength don't matter. Uh YEAH IT DOES !! What it should be telling them is how to compensate for the difference ! I don't know, maybe its just me !

wow so much to reply to haha, ok for my black belti am paying only $100 or so maybe $200, ive heard of people paying into the thousands for a black belt before which is ridiculous. To reply to u VDJ i take no offense to any of ur comments, ur opinion is ur own. Ok Yes i am talking about Master Chong Chul RHee not Jhoon Rhee because he is In America. The site u have been reading VDJ is not an official site but a site set up by im guessing an instructor in south australia. The only official comments about Rhee Taekwon-Do i have found is in an interview Master Rhee did in the 1990's, so whatever is on this site is mostly whoever made the sites opinion. Yes i no i have moved really fast up to brown belt and if all goes well i should have my black belt 1st Dan in about 2 years. The average of sum1 getting a black belt ive read is about 3 years. A black Belt is given when the student is compotent in the basics, and u shouldnt have to w8 like 6 years to get ur black belt if u r at that standard. I no that in Rhee Taekwon-Do after you get to ur first dan it takes a lot longer to get to 2nd dan etc. it is not rushed at all like i see in sum other MA when 20 year olds and such r 4th dans or sumthin stupid like that. From my knowledge and what i have heard and read i am quite sure that Master Rhee trained under General Choi but i am not 100% and i have not yet had the honour of having an in-depth talk with Master Rhee 1 on 1 yet. Once i receive my black belt i with the other black belts get to have dinner with him after gradings every 3 months, so i hope to learn alot then. If u have any other questions i'd b more then happy to answer them to the best of my abilties.

Jasperdaman,

I disagree ! It does look like the official site as it lists all of his schools and instructors as well as a picture of all the newly promoted BB's (and if ONE school promoted THAT many BB's, I would definitley say GET OUT NOW !). But if you do not believe it to be the official site, than I kindly ask that you either post it or PM it to me if you have it. I am interested to see if it contradicts the link I have posted.

Thanks,

VDJ
