About Grandmaster Kwon, Jae-Hwa: 


Kwon, Jae-Hwa was born in 1937 in Pusan, a large harbor town in South Korea. He began practicing the martial arts in his youth and soon made notice of himself through his exceptional talents. In Hae, Dea-Yeong, 6th Dan, Kwon found a devoted mentor and coach who was totally devoted to the advancement of his students. Upon completion of college studies in journalism, Kwon, Jae-Hwa was employed by Pusan IIbbo, the town's largest daily news publication. But his main focus in life was still his martial art (now under the name Taekwon-Do). At age 24 he was Chief Instructor (highest ranking coach) of the Yonmu-Kwan Taekwon-Do Schools. In 1964 he was appointed to the post of Association Technical Director for the Taekwon-Do department at public schools - as well as private Taekwon-Do schools and Universities in the Pusan region. Grandmaster Kwon, Jae-Hwa is the active functionary in both of these positions until this very day. In 1965, Korea's Goodwill Mission to Germany was led by General Choi and his top four instructors at that time, Cha-Gyo Han, Joong-Keun Kim, Jong-Soo Park and Jae-Hwa Kwon.  Taekwon-Do traces its roots back more than two thousand years. The various schools (systems) of Korean martial arts, known as the Kwans, were passed down from master to student through the generations. In 1955, General Choi, Hong Hi, together with some of the existing martial arts masters, consolidated all of the Kwans into a single, uniform martial art and named it Taekwon-Do. Hence, General Choi is known as the father of modern day Taekwon-Do.
