About Me: I have a passion for the art of Soo Bahk Do. I started training in the art when I was 9 yrs. old. I had the honor to train with Master Robert Thompson ( Dan Bon 1791 ), and for 17 yrs I traveled to Detroit to train with Sa Bom Nim C.I. Kim ( Dan Bon 475 ). I miss Sa Bom Nim Kim. He taught me so much about the art. The last 3 yrs. I've been recovering from a total hip replacement. now am having problems with my left prosthetic. I had a revision performed on my left hip on 05/18/2016
I had serious complications after that procedure. I also have a kidney disease, and pain in my lumbar area. One of my physicians burned my lumbar nerves to decrease the pain. Recently I found out that I have neuropathy. My surgeon told me that the martial arts is what saved me from having the total hip procedure done at an earlier age.
Interests: Reading, watching movies. Walking with my dog Coco. Staying connected with Soo Bahk Do through the use of Soo Bahk Do Institute.
