A More Modern Form

The Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do system has its foundation in the Chung Do Kwon style of Tae Kwon Do, but it is a more modern form which emphasizes, and has developed over the years, the more practical aspects of the Art.

Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do incorporates in its curriculum the “Chung-Gi” series of hyung, or “forms,” consistent with the International Tae Kwon Do Foundation (ITF). Although these forms are utilized, Jhoon Rhee students first learn Grand Master Rhee’s more pragmatic contemporary forms prior to learning the traditional forms.

Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do also emphasizes “semi-contact point fighting” or light-contact “continual fighting” in its sparring curriculum, as opposed to “full-contact” sparring. With this approach, Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do has produced many regional and national point fighting champions.


As students advance in rank, they are awarded a series of solid-color belts, beginning with white and proceeding toward black. In addition to earning belts, students can also earn stripes within a belt color, as a way to further measure and award progress.

Martial Arts Weapons and Competition Programs

Traditionally, the Korean Art of Tae Kwon Do does not typically implement the use of Martial Arts weapons. However, Jhoon Rhee Arlington employs instructors that have years of experience in various weapons. Therefore, students have the opportunity to expand their Martial Arts experience beyond the standard Jhoon Rhee curriculum.
