Does anyone else on this forum practice under an instructor that comes from Allen Steen's line of students?
My instructor said our school follows this lineage:
Apparently Joon Rhee attended the University of Texas in the late 50's and Steen earned his BB during that time. Steen was supposedly a big name in the US martial arts scene during the 60s.
Just curious to hear how other schools from this line do things.
I didn't train with Steen but trained with Art Heller who was a student of his and I fought Demetrius Havanas once, nearly worked for Rhee, and got to watch Fred Wren fight a few times. They were all very tough and very good and I don't hand out compliments lightly.
My TKD lineage comes from Rhee-Steen. To be Exact:
I know Mr Lafon. What do you want to know?
My daughter and I are both Purple Belts under Mr. LaFon.
