19 Nov THE PASSING OF GRANDMASTER RICHARD CHUN
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a true legend and pioneer of taekwondo: Grandmaster Rhin Moon Richard Chun. Kwanjangnim’s influence on Master Cook and the Chosun Taekwondo Academy in general is immeasurable. A memorial will be held to commemorate his vast accomplishments and offer respect for his passing, in late January 2018. Exact date and time TBA.
Prior to his passing, Grandmaster Chun and Mrs. Chun passed on ownership and the presidency of the United States Taekwondo Association to Master Cook. From here forward, Master Cook will be leading the USTA into the future, following the final wishes of his grandmaster.
