USA Taekwondo is saddened to learn of the passing of Grandmaster Byung Yul Lee today after a brave battle with cancer. Grandmaster Lee, a ninth-degree black belt and longtime member and supporter of USA Taekwondo, was head of the World Taekwondo Academy in Maple Grove, Minn., and is the father of U.S. National Team Assistant Coach Eui Lee.  

USAT would like to pass on its best wishes and condolences to the Lee family as well as the entire WTA family during this difficult time.
