Master William Rose started training in Scotland in 1972 under the instruction of Master Teh Hock Aun and Master Rhee Ki Ha. The Taekwondo academy opened in 1974 with Master Teh as chief instructor.

In 1977 Master Rose earned his First Dan (Black Belt) at Master Rhee’s Academy – one of the first five people in the UK to do so.

He then became assistant instructor at the academy. In 1978 Master Teh opened his own academy; Master Rose worked as an instructor there until 1983.

Chung Yong (Blue Dragon), schools of Taekwondo, was founded by Master William Rose in 1982 with clubs opening simultaneously in Clapham (South London) and Glasgow teaching Tae Kwon Do and Hap Ki Do to adults.

Hi Master Rose, I do not know if you remember me, but you used to teach me when I started Tae Kwon Do in 1978. How are you sir?
