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.
