TaeKwondo Master Simon Rhee and Na Yun Bae


TaeKwondo Master Simon Rhee and Na Yun Bae


hey I’m Alfred Hsing, film and TV actor, stuntman, TaeKwondo martial artist, and 2009 world Wushu Championships gold medalist in the next few weeks I will be traveling to a new destination with a local co-host to sit down and talk to a TaeKwondo martial arts master about life, food, philosophy and culture

after every meal we will learn three TaeKwondo self-defense techniques from our martial arts master welcome to martial arts and a meal Here I am in Los Angeles California where I’m gonna meet up w/ my friend, actress, and model Na Yun Bae, and we are gonna interview master Simon Rhee at Baroo restaurant in Hollywood Master Simon Rhee is a seventh degree black belt in Taekwondo in a fourth degree black belt in Hapkido alright hey guys we are here with the privilege an honor to be with Master Simon Rhee

one of my favorite movies that he’s in is”Best of the Best” He played the character De Han where he fights with his brother and in so much other movies I don’t know if you’ve seen “Lethal Weapon 4”, but he does that fight scene with Mel Gibson where they’re like both struggling in the truck and then they fall off the truck, and he’s like hanging on the freeway It’s amazing Three random questions: favorite color? black

Favorite food? green ok and what are your interests outside of TaeKwondo martial arts? golf let’s do it this is Chef Matthew Kim who is also partnered up with chef Kwang Uh at Baroo restaurant, and innovative a Korean fusion restaurant that’s been reviewed by Jonathan Gold as “the taste of the future” Best of the Best came from our heart

it felt like it, definitely felt like it because at that time when all the martial arts movies were coming out, there was nothing that really really showed what martial artists really go through so if you see our movie there’s no sex there’s no drugs there’s no revenge

you see true martial artist training training hard for this tournament there’s a lot of heart and true spirit of TaeKwondo martial art, that’s what we want to show people you know I go up to my brother, give him the medal, I’m supposed to there’s a lot of heart yeah and to spirit of emotion that’s what we want sure you know I go up to my brother given the medal yeah I’m supposed to speak Korean to him and Sally Kirkland was forced to translate my brother said Simon you gonna have to do this in broken English finally being able to say that broken English without even me realizing I didn’t even try to cry but it just came out naturally

when I deliver the metal back to him with you know tears in my eyes I’m like, seeing that scene play out right now so many people cried I think we’re ready to learn some moves all right well we had a chance to digest on our way over here and we are gonna learn three super effective self-defense moves from Master Simon Rhee and we are actually here right over here at his studio I am ready I’m excited I don’t know what he’s gonna teach us but I’m ready to do this

you guys ready to get warmed up? yeah, let’s do it first thing you want to do whenever you get into a confrontation, you don’t want to expose your body to your opponent the first thing I like turn my body sideways if you’re a right leg kicker put your ight leg in front bring your right knee up and bring your heel toward your glute and from here you can thrust a sidekick usually feet don’t break the guy’s leg

if you feel something coming towards your leg the guys gonna stop TaeKwondo Master Rhee what would be technique number two number? two would be like number one you get a chance to keep your body sideways right your body’s not exposed but sometimes you don’t have chance to do that right like you’re facing your opponent and all something’s coming at you right right step back by creating a distance so what I would do is try to distract by like putting my hand out there

I definitely feel like that’s an effective TaeKwondo technique and we’re gonna let Na Yun give it a try because I have just the thing right here TaeKwondo Master Rhee–technique number three let’s go punch line your knuckles up vertically and you just go straight for the nose this reason why I would do that even if they have a fighting stance like this because if you throw like a wild swinging punches they see it coming that’s power right? so what is an advanced technique that even someone that’s been training for maybe five or ten years could take away from you know from this lesson? so Taekwondo is known for their beautiful kick so let me show you a few kicks

don’t be scared it’s all about using TaeKwondo kicking momentum, all the momentum is going to be coming towards me this way first your shuffle roundhouse kick the shuffle roundhouse down spinning roundhouse kick continuing down heel kick continue with a jump spinning roundhouse kick again and finishing up with a spinning head kick I want you to go one, two, three, four, five that looked way easier when you did it I am not a Taekwondo Master I have zero belts wow, that was amazing alright, thank you TaeKwondo Master Rhee it was a great TaeKwondo workout, thank you for your tips I had fun teaching you today you guys are great to teach TaeKwondo, good energy both of you.

I guess I won’t have to work out this month all right, let’s grab our stuff one final test are you okay? yeah, I need that cup again no no I was fine, I was just playing no people were injured in the making this seriously thank you so much for being part of your show that was awesome you
