Welcome to our podcast presented by the J.K. Lee Community. We’re going to be bringing you closer to individuals who are living examples of our tenets and oath. 

Our podcast is being produced, researched and brought to life by students at J.K. Lee City Youth and J.K. Lee Black Belt Academy. In addition to learning about our tenets in action, our students are learning about communication, the media, language, performance, marketing and design!  (Parental note: Episodes are aimed at children ages ten and up.

Our podcast is lead and hosted by Miss Chloe Lee. She has been doing taekwondo since she was three years old and is currently a first degree black belt at J.K. Lee's Blackbelt Academy. Chloe wanted to host the podcast because she wants to teach others about the importance of the tenets of taekwondo and practice her interviewing and communication skills. She enjoys playing tennis, the oboe, and reading.
