GM Huan’s immense knowledge and skill of TKD became renowned locally as
well as internationally resulting in thousands of students joining his organization.
He was fearfully (and affectionately) known as “Tiger Huan” because of his
sparring prowess, but in him, he was friendly, kind and generous to everyone.
A man of good heart and was an advocate of non-violence.
When many in Singapore were contented with just learning TKD at that time,
GM Huan had the vision to pioneer, build and establish a strong Taekwondo
organization in Singapore in the 70s, hence he founded the Singapore
Taekwon-do Academy (STA). Like all great Masters of martial arts, GM Huan’s
name was etched in the memory of martial artists in Singapore during his era
and in those that came to know him. He is irreplaceable and we can only carry
on his legacy.
With his passing on 28 March 2012, I have lost a long-time friend, coach, mentor
and grandmaster. Rest in peace GM Huan, the Father of Traditional Taekwon-Do
in Singapore and Founder of STA.
Grand Master Henry Low, 8th Degree
Chief Instructor, Singapore Taekwon-do Academy
