The Source

Studying my particular style (PaSaRyu, FYI) in the Memphis, TN area, I'm privileged to have a distinct advantage that many martial artists don't get to experience. At least once a week, I get to work with the creator of the PaSaRyu system, Master Kang Rhee. Typically, Master Rhee begins class by recognizing the white belts, the Little Dragon's class and the black belts (each individually by name), and then he offers to demonstrate a kata, even though lately it's been 3 different katas (which, in his words, at his age might make him drop dead...LOL).

As I said earlier, not many people can say that they've had the opportunity to work directly with the man that created a martial arts system. Getting information and ideas from the source is invaluable.
