About Master Lee


She was born in Seoul, South Korea, the second of four children.  She didn't start Martial Arts at a very young age because she was athletic in all kinds of sports and competed with her elementary school's track team.  The coach at the school she graduated from wanted her to go to a competitive physical education school, but she didn't.  At that moment, she thought she would not pursue sports in her life and that was a difficult decision to part from her team friends.

When she was 12 years old, she went to a Tae Kwon Do Dojang to visit her friends which inspired her to make a goal to become a Woman Master.  She began attending a Tae Kwon Do school named Chungho in Soeul, South Korea.  Her Grand Master's name was Tae-Hyung Kwon.  She participated in many competitions in form and sparring and traveled with her university's demonstration team training and performing in a variety of locations.

After all she fell in love with Tae Kwon Do and other Martial Arts, she started to pursue her Bachelor's degree at Yong-In University majoring in Total Martial Arts, earning her degree in 2006.  She currently has her 5th Degree in Tae Kwon Do, 4th Degree in Hap Ki Do and in Yong Moo Do, and also 3rd Degree in Ju Do.  Hyo Min Lee shares her love for Tae Kwon Do with children, teenagers, and parents.  She not only teaches them the intricate skills of martial arts but models patience and compassion in her care for her students.
