Grandmaster is the founder of Hwa Rang Do®,
and is the director of our Academy here at the World Headquarters.
From an early age he began learning the skills of the ancient
Hwarang warriors from a monk named Suahm Dosa in the mountains
of Korea. As he mastered the martial and healing skills he was
taught, Dr. Joo-Bang Lee realized that these techniques and concepts
could be very beneficial to the general public at large. Not only
are the skills comprehensive in their depth, but through continued
training an individual will develop strength in all areas of their
lives - body, mind, and spirit. So, in 1960 he brought these skills
back to the public, founding the public institution of Hwa Rang
Do® in Seoul, Korea.
Almost a decade later he came to America to promote this art
to the world at large. Since this time he has been dedicated to
spreading this art, and guiding the next generation of practitioners.
The home base here in Tustin California has been home to our World Headquarters
since this time.
From early childhood to becoming a leader among Korean martial
art practitioners, The history of Founder, Dr. Joo-Bang Lee is
quite intriguing. He is recognized throughout the world as one
of the most prominent martial artists of our time. Throughout
his life, and many accomplishments, he has always maintained a
strong sense of integrity and has been an example to everyone
on what it means to live an honorable life.
Also he is the DONG KOOK Health Care Center at the same location suite #205
