Lee Chang-soo is the Chief of the Demonstration Unit for the World Hapkido Federation and Headmaster of Hapkido Jin Jung Kwan in Seoul, Korea. He became a Korean national hero in 1980 when he knocked out the best Indonesian champions at his first blow. The National Defense Ministry of Indonesia attempted to invite him as a national coach. Korean government officers designated him to the Chief of the Demonstration Unit. He is one of the first generation masters who learned from Grandmaster Kim Myung-yong (currently residing in Houston, Texas), the founder of Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido.
