Grandmaster Chan Yong Kim, 9th-Degree Black Belt
Grandmaster Kim holds a 9th-Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo, an 8th-Degree Black Belt in Yudo, and a 6th-Degree Black Belt in Hapkido. All branches of the Oriental Moo-Do School are linked to the main school in Cerritos, CA, and come under the supervision of Grandmaster Kim for testing and curriculum requirements.
Born in the 1930s, Grandmaster Kim began training in martial arts as a child in what is now North Korea. After years of training and graduation from the martial arts university in Seoul, Korea, Grandmaster Kim taught martial arts to the 8thU.S. Army in Korea for 5 years, and then traveled around the Pacific Rim to demonstrate and teach. He founded Taekwondo and Yudo schools in several countries, established the Australian Taekwondo Association, and coached the Australian Olympic Judo team. In 1971, Grandmaster Kim immigrated to the United States, where he founded the first Oriental Moo-Do School (OMS) in Cerritos, CA.
Since founding the original OMS, Grandmaster Kim has trained literally thousands of students in the martial arts, including many national, international, and Olympic champions. * He founded the California State Taekwondo Association and served as its President for eight years. In 1977, Grandmaster Kim became an internationally certified referee and served as the International Olympic Committee Chairman of Referees for Taekwondo from 1989 to 1994. At the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, he served as Taekwondo Competition Chairman. In May, 2003, this long time “missionary” for Taekwondo and the Korean Martial Arts was awarded the Korean National Sports Merit Medal in Seoul, Korea by the President of the Republic of Korea. This prestigious award is the highest honor that can be given to a sports figure by the Korean government. More recently, in the spring of 2011, Grandmaster Kim became an inductee into the Taekwondo Grandmaster’s Hall of Fame.
*One such champion was Grandmaster Kim’s own son, Master Jimmy Kim, who won the gold medal in the men’s heavyweight division for the United States in the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea—the first-ever Olympic gold medal to be awarded for Taekwondo. Master Jimmy Kim has gone on to establish his own martial arts school JKTC, where he is training a new generation of Olympic athletes and is currently the National Team Coach for Taekwondo Sport Poomsae (Forms).
