He is a 5th dan master with the Kukkiwon and has ranks in other organizations as well and styles. He has a 6th dan in Pro Taekwondo, 5th dan in Composite Martial Arts, 4th dan Hapkido, and 5th dan in Bul Moo Do (some kind of Korean Buddhist monk martial art).

I may not prefer the student’s tank top uniform style for his gym as I prefer the traditional WTF approved doboks, but whatever, he is an inspiration for me as a Taekwondo instructor.
