Black belt in 12 weeks

11:57:00 AM Tkd kwan 0 Comments


Master Dae Sung Lee is an American citizen living in China now, He was an Olympic coach for the United States Taekwondo team and also the Chinese Taekwondo teams, and earned many medaals and awards.
Master Lee started a blowing mind training program with his business partner Michael Huang, This program makes is possible to earn the first Dan black belt of Taekwondo in 12 weeks.




Master Lee's school is in University Town just outside of Chongqing.
According to master Lee the charge of this 12 weeks black belt program would coast 4500 US $, and the training will be 6 hours a day, in the morning from 9 am to 12 am, and from 2 pm to 5 pm.
Total of hours would be around 500 hours, and if we make mathematics the normal students can do 500 classes in about three years and half if they do three classes a week.
but we honestly do not think that three months can make a black belt, and it really does not matter if they get the master's certificate or the kukkiwon first Dan certificate, these students would just beginners in my opinion, because in my martial arts philosophy we can not squeeze the period of learning.




This thing can remind you about the matrix film, where the hero needs programs to be put in his memory to master martial arts styles.
We have here the Cv of grand master Lee is really impressive, but do you think that his idea to promote black belts this way is a correct thing?
