Master Kang Rhee's 75th Birthday Celebration
2:00 - 4:00 p.m., 255 North Highland Street, Memphis, TN
Details: PaSaRyu and the World Black Belt Bureau are honoring Master Kang Rhee as he celebrates his 75th Birthday.  Master Rhee has been teaching young students and adults the lifelong benefits of martial arts in the Memphis area for over 40 years. Master Rhee had the privilege of teaching karate to Elvis Presley in the early '70s. Elvis loved karate and from these lessons the two formed a valuable friendship which Master Rhee still holds close to his heart.

Master Rhee has collected many awards and accolades over the years, but one that he is most proud of is producing an Annual Charity Karate Championship for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital where they have raised upwards of tens of thousands of dollars over the past four decades.

Join us January 26, 2013, at Victory University, 255 North Highland Street, Memphis, TN, from 2 to 4 p.m. to celebrate and honor this Memphis treasure. There will be music, vintage video, photos and a martial arts demonstration, followed by refreshments and fellowship. There is a $5.00 cover fee per person at the door.
