Recently I was honored with an award from system founder, Grandmaster Kim Soo for my personal contributions in helping to promote and preserve Chayon-Ryu. This is a very prestigious recognition from Grandmaster, who recognizes that dedication and individual contributions outside of attending classes, help to proliferate the natural way.
I was very touched by this gesture, and very honored to receive this award. I am very proud to be a black belt in Chayon-Ryu. It is a martial arts discipline based in art, science and philosophy as opposed to sport or competition and as a result, those who practice, enjoy better living, health, success and longevity.
