Master Lee Breaking

He has sparring champion status and his internationally certified training through the Kukkiwon consists of more than 25 years experience. As a missionary and a Master of Tae Kwon Do, Master Young Jin Lee came to the U.S. with his wife and daughter in 2003 from Korea. He felt compelled to open the first H.T.A. Martial Arts Academy in Cahokia, IL. His vision of bringing family and community together, helping others find great abilities within themselves, and creating solid foundations in the lives of many children as well as adults so they may have the opportunity to create a successful future began to evolve. Through hard work, strong friendships and great faith in believing "nothing is impossible" his school grew rapidly cultivating an increasing number of Black Belts.

Master Lee

H.T.A. instructors are all Black Belts from his first school and are continuously training hard under his influence. He pays extremely close attention to detail and good manners, which are
a must. He believes it is not enough to just have good kicking and good technique but a good mind is of the utmost importance. Master Young Jin Lee's life's work achievements also
include missionary work in the Rainbow Orphanage, ministering to the mountain people of the Philippines, and completion of the Master Divinity Course.
