Grand Master Kim Dae-shik Passes Away February 2, 2007
It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Grand Master Kim
Dae-shik. While I never had the privelege of training directly under GM
Kim, I have been influenced by him through my study at the US Martial
Arts Institute that he founded in Austin, TX.
Here are a couple of links to biographical information.
While USMAI is now defunct and I think Master Yoon is wandering into the realm of bullshido these days, I think Grand Master Kim's approach to cross training was a very good one in terms of incorporating TKD as a component of a more holistic approach to self defense training.
I don't know if this post belongs more in this forum or in the News forum. Mods feel free to relocate as appopriate.
