The Mission of the United Tae Kwon Do Society is to bring authentic Chung Do Kwan Tae Kwon Do to the next generation
of Martial Artist.
In 1984 Paul and Chris Kelly began training at the Town of Newburgh Recreation Center under John Lupasello (Brown Belt).
Within a few months John's instructor, K.A. Lipsey, opened a fulltime studio on Rt. 52 in Newburgh where they continued their
training. Paul and Chris were promoted to the rank of 1st DAN Black Belt at the World Tae Kwon Do Association Headquarters
in Manhattan in November of 1986. Two months later Paul was given the school at the Newburgh Recreation Center and Kelly's
Tae Kwon Do was founded. Six months later the Lipsey school decided to leave The World Tae Kwon Do Association and Kelly's
Tae Kwon Do followed. Over the course of the next few years Kelly's Tae Kwon Do decided to stay with Traditional Tae Kwon
Do and went on its own way until 1996. Having earned the rank of 3rd DAN Black Belt outside WTA, Paul and Chris decided to
strap on their 1st DAN belts and visit GrandMaster Son. They were invited back into WTA and awarded their 2nd DAN in the fall
of 1996, their 3rd DAN in the fall of 1997, their 4th DAN in the fall of 2000, their 5th DAN in the fall of 2005 and 6th Dan
in the Spring of 2008. Chris still teaches at the Town of Newburgh Recreation Center having also taught in Wallkill.
Paul relocated to Durham, NC where he teaches at the Person County Recreation Center, having also taught in Hopewell Jnct,
NY, Pinebush, NY; Mamakating Park, NY; and Washingtonville, NY.
