    TKD Hall Of Fame

    Mr. Gerard Robbins, a frequent grand champion from the 1970s, assembled this HOF. It is not a pay-to-play site by any means, but rather a compilation of who he believes are/were some of the big movers and shakers he has come across in his many years of participating in TKD. IMO, a very very good list.

    http://www.lacancha.com/taekwondohalloffame.html

    The page takes forever to load, with over 600 photos.

    This could be a good thread to talk about some of the lesser known people on the list, maybe people you know on it from your region. We could learn a lot from such exchanges of information.

    They forgot to add Ernest Lieb in the 1st generation (60's). He was the first American to win a title from Korea at the Taesoodo Championships.

    I had the privilidge to talk with Mst. Lieb prior to his death. He was supposed to visit us at the AKA Grand Nationals (a tournament he started 42 years ago, that our school now runs.). We were sadden by the notification of his death.

    I'm glad to see Dr. Min in there. He was a good friend of Choin Bong-young, my instructor Sean Owen's instructor, and Sean earned his 2nd dan from Dr. Min. My first exposure to Oly style TKD was in Berkeley studying under Dr. Choi for a summer while I was in college.

    I was also glad to see Lee Dae-sung and William Oliver. They were both really good friends with my instructor in Hawai'i, Joe Bennet. They used to talk story about the old days when they did bare knuckle fights and they always worked really hard together to run the tournaments in Hawai'i.

    I'm surprise they don't have Danny Kim on there, since he won two world titles and one silver.

    This basicly opens up the debate of who "founded" TKD. It also opens up the debate of Choi's real credentials. This isn't just a can a worms, it is pretty much a box of nightcrawlers. :)

    But I'm not aware of any great accomplishments on his part and he has no great history in the NY area. His school is a McDojang of the highest order, selling tea and teapots for black belt "tea ceremonies."

    He is a recent addition to this HOF and I suspect he submitted his name himself and Mr. Robbins just threw him on there.
    you suspect but you have no proof you say yourself he was the only master present to do a demo doesnt this prove he is willing to back up his status as a master compared to others

    I'm not aware of any of his students going on to do anything very impressive, unlike the older GMs in the NYC area.
    in what way was his demo inferior did he lack full contact sparring or was it just co-operative self defence drills.
