Super Senior: Robert McGee


#MakeItPossible


When you look at Robert McGee’s martial arts achievements, the results are pretty spectacular.  He’s trained in karate, kung fu, tai chi and, of course, Taekwondo.   In his martial arts career, he has earned 273 gold medals, 130 silver medals, and 88 bronze medals.

But his ATA journey didn’t start in any type of traditional way.

McGee didn’t even begin training in Taekwondo until the ripe young age of 65!  Currently he is a 3rd Degree Black Belt who trains under the outstanding leadership of Senior Masters Michael and Kimberly Brown in Fayetteville, N.C. and he is now 72!

During this year’s Worlds he won six gold medals and one silver medal in the Tournament of Champions. 

That’s not all. 

He’s also been inducted into the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame and the Who’s Who in the Martial Arts Hall of Fame. 

Through his many accolades, it is clear that McGee is highly successful on the mat, but his credentials in life reach way farther.  He is a CPA and attorney who has earned 23 academic degrees, including 13 doctorates from universities in the United States and Europe.  Additionally, he is an Amazon best-selling novelist who has published 59 books. 

As Grand Master G.K. Lee has stepped into his new role, one of his true passions is embracing the community of more mature martial artists.

 “I believe that maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise program is the key to living a long and prosperous life.  Taekwondo is very key to that for many individuals.  It appears that Mr. McGee is taking this idea and making his life the best it can be.  I congratulate him on all he has accomplished.”

ATA World Champion, Robert McGee, continues to #MakeItPossible through his training.  It is an inspiration and motivation to us all.
