We pride ourselves in helping each student achieve their goals and developing their mental and physical strength. This is what attaining a Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do Black Belt requires.
For some of our candidates this journey to Black Belt began in our Knee High Ninja Program, when they were only four years old!
This month, these candidates passed our Arlington Qualifier and the Panel Exam in front of the Jhoon Rhee Masters from Arlington and Falls Church. Our candidates persevered and we would like to present and congratulate our newest Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do Black Belts!
We want to send an extra special congratulations to Master Shackelford. Master Shackelford has always said that Tae Kwon Do has given him the three best things in his life: Tae Kwon Do, his wife, and his livelihood. 18 years ago, Master Shackelford left the corporate world to open Jhoon Rhee Arlington. The thousands of students that have walked through our doors are grateful for having such an amazing leader, mentor, and role model.
With the rank of 7th degree, he holds the highest official rank in Jhoon Rhee Tae Kwon Do. Well deserved for a person that has selflessly dedicated his life to Jhoon Rhee Arlington, the staff, and students.
