I have found the practice of Tae Kwon Do to benefit both my mind and body. It provides me with the physical fitness and mental clarity needed to cope with the stresses of everyday life. The discipline of Tae Kwon Do enables me to deal with all situations and people in an evenhanded, clear, and concise manner.

I am very fortunate that Master Kim is my Sa Bom Nim. For the past ten years I have been his student and found him to be strict but fair, perceptive and extremely sensitive to the needs of others, and a living example of all the important qualities I have learned from him, concentration, dedication, persistence, confidence, ability to meet challenges with strength, and above all, humility. May I continue to be his student for a long time to come.
