About Us


Here’s what others think of our programs…

  • Marlene Catterall — M.P. Ottawa West-Nepean

    “It was a privilege for me to work with Master Lee to have Taekwondo recognized and included as an Olympic sport. But this is only one of his many accomplishments. As a proud Canadian of Korean heritage, he has been an ambassador for Canada on numerous trade missions and been recognized for his humanitarian work and social leadership.”

  • Jim Watson — Mayor of Ottawa

    “For a quarter century you have been a great inspiration to so many residents of Ottawa. Whether you are assisting the police, or raising funds for a charity like CHEO, or assisting with a local School Advisory Committee, you are a role model for all of our fellow citizens.

    One of the great highlights of my terms as Mayor of Ottawa was to be honoured with a Black Belt (3rd DAN) in 1999. (I still have the splinters in my hand to prove I broke the board!).”

  • Bob Chiarelli — Former Mayor of Ottawa

    “As Mayor of the Nation’s Capital, I am very proud to lend my fullest support to Grandmaster Lee’s initiatives to encourage Taekwondo as a method to rehabilitate children with special needs, to provide his professional skills to the various police services and to assist local hospitals with health care awareness campaigns”

  • Girl, Age 14, 1st DAN Black Belt

    “My concentration has improved 100% and I feel better about myself. Guys like to pick on girls my age, especially away from school. I don’t feel threatened because I know I can defend myself.”
