My name is John Neace I have trianed in the art since I was 9 years old. I had the honor to trian with Master Robert A. Thompson , and for 17 years I traveled to Detroit to train with Sa Bom Nim C.I.Kim. About 8 years ago I started having problems with my hip. I was sent to a surgeon here in Dayton ,Ohio. Dr. Brown my surgeon told me if I had not been active in my life especially in the martial arts ( Soo Bahk Do ) my procedure would have been performed at a much younger age. I want to thank the Founder, and Kwan Jang Nim Hwang for the art that has helped me in my life.
