Olympic Medalist Lee Dae Hoon Teaches “Korean Englishman” High Schoolers Taekwondo And One Of Them Aced Every Move

Lee Dae Hoon’s crash course for the boys showed he was an excellent Taekwondo instructor.

Korean Englishman YouTuber Josh Daryl Carrott and his British high schoolers have taken a trip to Korea and visited the World Taekwondo Headquarters to meet Taekwondo Olympic medalist Lee Dae Hoon.

Lee Dae Hoon was a silver medal winner at the 2012 London Olympics and a bronze medal winner at the 2016 Rio Olympics. He was also a three-time gold medalist at the Asian Games. The boys were surprised that the Olympian would give them a crash course in Taekwondo.

Taekwondo is a Korean form of martial arts characterized by punching and kicking, emphasizing head-height kicks, spinning jump kicks, and fast kicking techniques. The British boys now get a rare opportunity to learn the sport from an Olympic champion.
