Mr. Chanho Lee
3rd Dan World Taekwondo Federation Black Belt
Mr. Lee started training Tae Kwon Do in Korea as a young teenager. Being a shy boy growing up, he learnt quickly that martial arts gave him self esteem. His training gave him enough confidence to travel to India to do volunteer work as well as enlist into the Korean army at the age of 19. During time in the military, Mr. Lee achieved the rank of 2nd degree black belt.
After successfully completing his 2 year service, Mr. Lee relocated to Canada to continue his Tae Kwon Do and Brazilian Jiu jitsu training under the guidance of Master Strachan and Master Park. He currently holds a 3rd Dan black belt. Mr Lee is passionate about teaching martial arts as training gives kids tools to be confident and respectful.
