With sadness we humbly announce the passing of Master Kim Yong Duk, Dan Number 2. Master Kim Yong Duk was one of Grandmaster Hwang Kee's original students. He is pictured below standing second from left. This announcement was posted on the internet.
Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang has responded to an email inquiry concerning Kim Sa Bom Nim's passing:
Thank you for your mail.
I am very sorry to learn about Kim, Yong Duk Sa Bom Nim's passing.
My thoughts are with him and his family.
It was very good visit with him last October when he was in the hospital and we shared many stories and thoughts of the past and present of the Moo Duk Kwan. He was going to attend the Moo Duk Kwan 70th next year...
I have good memories of him during early days of the Moo Duk Kwan.
I hope all Moo Duk Kwan practitioners join me to wish his peaceful rest.
Yours In Moo Duk Kwan,
