In Seoul, Korea of 1945, Master Byung In Yun established the Y.M.C.A. Martial Art Club. Sadly he was killed in the Korean War.
Two years later in 1947, Master Nam Sak Lee established the Chang Moo Kwan Kong Soo Do Association in Seoul, Korea. Here Master Kang Rhee trained under Master Lee from 1953 through 1956 where he learned the value of perfect, clear technique.
During Master Rhee's studies with Master Lee, Master Chul Hee Park established the Kang Duk Won Moo Do Association in Seoul, Korea of 1954. Once Master Rhee's studies were complete with Master Lee, he went to train under Master Park to define and refine his technique for more grace and beauty. He trained with Master Park from 1957 through 1964
Then in 1964 Master Kang Rhee came to the United States. Combining the training he received from both Masters, Master Rhee developed the PaSaRyu system and established the PaSaRyu Martial Artist Association in Memphis, Tennessee. From there, Master Rhee has taught many students and the art of PaSaRyu continues to grow.
The PaSaRyu (Way of Honor) style is a blend of elements of Karate, Kung Fu, and TaeKwonDo. The style is more open and free than the traditional forms.
