Dr John Johnson, 5th Dan, with the Phoenix Group has made history by being the third American to earn a PhD in Taekwondo, but the first to earn one with a concentration in the Philosophy of Taekwondo. He is also the first ITF practitioner to earn a degree from a Taekwondo college in a Korean university (Kyung-Hee University in South Korea).

Dr Johnson is in the process of writing several articles for the TaeKwon-Do times for publication.

Dr. Johnson might be able to identify and publish the applications for the patterns. Some efforts have been made in this regard, but they have not gotten very far.
