GRANDMASTER JOE ONOPA
“THE WHITE TIGER“ 1942-2010.
Founder: KWON BOP DO FEDERATION / ONOPAS INSTITUTE OF TAE KWON DO.
WELCOME to the official International website for the TKD Kwon Bop Do Federation foundered by Grandmaster Joe Onopa 10th Degree Black belt “The White Tiger”.
A true warrior; a man who lived his life as a martial artist. He lived and taught by his motto “Thou shall not kill”. The philosophy behind this is, thou shall not kill an idea, a dream, a person’s self-worth, their confidence, you should never do anything to destroy another person, when you do anything negative to another person you are killing a part of them. This was Grandmasters way of life, to teach the True Martial Arts to all those willing to gain it’s benefits.
Unfortunately, we lost this good man and great teacher in December 2010 he is sorely missed by all those he touched. His legacy continues on through the Inheritor and International Director Master Nick Donato Soke Dai (refer to Official Letters) with the full support of the World Head of Family Sokeship Council and through the many officially authorized schools throughout Australia and the USA by the authorized and registered Instructors of the Federation (refer to Official Black Belt Register).
Schools, Clubs, and Instructors Affiliation Enquiries continue to be welcome as they did under the leadership of Grandmaster Joe Onopa.
