    Texas Karate/TKD?

    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:

    Joon Rhee
    Allen Steen
    Royce Young
    Roy Lafon
    Scott Compton

    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.
