In 1974 I joined Chung Kim’s Black Belt Academy. Training in Tae Kwon Do helps me mentally, physically, and spiritually. During the early years of training I loved being on the Demonstration Team, the Fighting Team, and felt especially honored to wear the Red Fighting Team Uniform. Grand Master Kim’s help was instrumental in my career with the Rock Island Police Department, using the skills I learned from Tae Kwon Do. I will continue training and studying my martial art of Tae Kwon Do until I rest.
