GM Park Chull-Hee and GM Kim Soo
Grandmaster was invited along with Grandmaster Park Chull-Hee to Yongin University to preserve on film this vanishing classical art, the legacy of GM Yoon Byung-In.

"In order to preserve this valuable art the TKD Promotion foundation decided to film all of  GM Yoon Byung-in's legacy, which we preserve in Chayon-Ryu. Very few people perform these forms in the world  properly, so during filming I got to do the most of the jobs, approx. 4 hours with lunch break."-GM Kim Soo

Preserving the history of Korean martial arts has been a life long mission of Grandmaster Kim Soo, and a responsibility he passes on to each of us as bearers of his legacy.
