Grandmaster JC Kim – a brief history

Master Kim has assisted our Founder General Choi Hong Hi since the beginning of Taekwon-Do  and the ITF.

Master Kim played a key role in the creation of ITF.  In 1966 he was in fact a founding member of the ITF.

Master Kim is a pioneer of South East Asia and North America shortly after GM Joon Rhee.

He has helped many South American countries become a TKD  power house and is renembered by us as the person who realized Gen Choi’s wish in the early days:

Grand Master Kim hosted the First ITF World  Championships in 1974 … one of many difficult periods in the ITF history.
