Master Byong Yu is an accomplished martial artist. He was born in 1935, in Korea. When he moved to the United States, he overcame physical disabilities, language barriers, racial prejudice, and homelessness to take the Martial Arts circuit by storm, earning himself the nickname, "Lightening Bolt." Eventually attained the highest rank of ninth dan from the World Taekwondo Federation. He was inducted into the "World Professional Martial Arts Association's Hall of Fame," voted "Man of the Century," and in 2001 received the prestigious "Martial Arts World Federation Lifetime Achievement Award." Master Yu presently resides in the Los Angeles area, where he continues to teach martial arts at his school located inside the CBS Studio Center.
