Taekwondo, the Korean art of self-defence, was first introduced to Canada in 1964 by Grand Master Chong Lee, 9th Dan, right here in Montreal. We have students from all of Montreal’s area in addition to students coming all the way from Laval and Longueuil. Since then, its popularity has grown steadily and has spread throughout Canada and many other countries. Since his beginnings, 45 years ago, Grand Master Lee has trained more people in the sport than anyone else in Canada.
Taekwondo is not only a martial art but also a well developed and easily accessible sport. Beyond learning self-defence techniques, practicing adults will build, maintain or regain physical fitness by increasing physical ability, flexibility and endurance.
For children the benefits of taekwondo are well recognized and multiple. Well guided by our qualified instructors, children acquire discipline, focus, self-respect as well as respect for others and their environment. It is not unusual to observe improvements in academic performance as well. At Chong Lee Taekwondo, parents can follow their children’s progress from the health bar which offers a great view onto the dojang (gymnasium).
Situated two blocks away from the Castelneau Metro station, Chong Lee Taekwondo offers classes for all levels in a stimulating and safe environment.
