Jae Bock Chung, Tae Kwon Do master and pain clinic owner

Posted on April 24, 2013


Jae Bock Chung is probably one of the few men in Madison who can both put you in a lot of pain and help relieve it.

Chung, 75, has spent much of his time in Madison running two businesses: the Madison Tae Kwon Do School and the Internal Medicine and Pain Clinic.

His career started in Seoul, South Korea, where he studied Oriental medicine at DongYangMedicalCollege and Tae Kwon Do at the Chung Do Kwon Institute. He then received an invitation from a doctor at UW Hospital to come to Madison.

Since he moved here in 1966, Chung has received numerous honors in both of his careers. He is a ninth-degree black belt and has earned the title Grand Master. He is also the president of the National Tae Kwon Do Association.

“I believe I teach people one of the highest-quality values: I make people leaders,” he says. “I also make people healthier and help them live better lives.”
