Terry Kim is a great trainer. I'm recovering from surgery, and he's teaching me to get back into boxing, kicking, weights, and cardio. Compassionate and motivating. Exactly what I need!

Still the best place to learn martial arts since 1973.

I spent a couple years training at the parafield gardens club under Grand Master Lee and now my son trains in Munno Para under Master Jaime who I trained with all those years ago! This is a close knit club and everyone is very friendly and attends club functions.

Unexpected visitor to Friday night poomsae class!

Honoured to have Grand Master Lee join us for class and help correct our technique.

He has indicated that he will continue making appearances in the future to help maintain our standard for MDK and KKW.

Maybe he’s saying our instructors aren’t strict enough? 😂 🤔

That’s one of the black belt level forms. Is it Go-ryo?

More about the rule set than the actual fight. Punches to the head changes the meta drastically

Kicks are harder than punches ..so I think it's fair.

Flashback Friday
===================

Grandmaster Lee fled from North Korea to the South when he was 6yrs old with his family.

As a young adult, as required for all Korean men (to this day), he was conscripted into the Army.

However, as he had studied and was fluent in English, together with his outgoing and confident nature, he joined a special group of Korean nationals enlisted into the US Army (he said they had much better food than in the Korean Army!).

While there he taught Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo to the local US Army men stationed there.

These are some photos from those days, we hope you enjoy them!

Lest We Forget

On this day we remember our family, friends and fellow Australians and allies that served and often sacrificed greatly to ensure our freedoms.

A little known fact is that Grand Master Lee’s family is originally from North Korea, having had to travel to the South by foot with many thousands during the Korean War.

Our family is deeply indebted to the Allied forces, and particularly the young Australian men and women who fought for us and our freedoms in a country far from their own wide land.

We remember them on this day, the sacrifices of whom, without which we would not be here today.

Thank You!
