“Over my 30+ years of training in and teaching martial arts, I’ve had the honor and privilege of working with many martial artists and masters from across the world. There are very few I have come across for which I can legitimately say perfectly embody competency and character in the way Grandmaster Taejoon Lee does.
Most are either great at what they do, but lack the character to be great individuals or are great people, but lacking in their physical abilities.
Grandmaster Lee carries with him a unique genius, which makes him both a transformational mentor to thousands of students and an exceptional martial artist of unparalled skill and knowledge.”

“What a privilege to be able to train with a Grandmaster of Hwarangdo every week! Kuksanim Taejoon Lee’s passion for his students’ development in the martial way, as well as his profound technical understanding and skill in a seemingly unlimited number of topics make this class a truly unmatched experience. The level of detail makes it easy for beginners to jump in and follow along, and of course he always throws in curve balls to get advanced students thinking about things in a new way. Those “Aha!” and “Wow!” moments always keep me coming back for more. Whether I am at the gym training, at home catching up on chores, or on the road on business or visiting family, I can log on to the Mastermind Class wherever I can find an internet connection. I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to step up their martial arts progression and personal development.”

“Weekday nights aren’t what they used to be. For as long as I have trained in Hwa Rang Do, coming home from the dojang after an evening class marked the end of a busy day. That changed last November, when Grandmaster Lee began offering live online video streams of classes at the West Coast Headquarters. Now weekday nights are filled with an opportunity I used to have only during seminars: direct instruction from Grandmaster Lee.
