Background

Dr. Kim came from the humblest of circumstances. She was born in a small shack with a thatched roof, which by today's standards would not even be fit to be used as a barn. Dr. Kim, however, was born in such a place, and had to endure physical and mental abuse, hunger, rejection, simply because she was born a girl, into a male dominated society in South Korea. In addition, she was abandoned during the Korean War, when she was only 5 years old.

Knighthood

Knighthood

Always a tradition breaker, she was the first woman in the 1,700 year history of the Order of Constantine the Great and St. Helen, to ever become a Knight. As it was considered improper to touch a woman with a sword, only men could be properly knighted. The leadership of the Order, however, realized that Dr. Kim was not just a woman, but was a true warrior, and therefore accepted her fully into Knighthood.

When she was only 7 years old, she watched her uncles train in the morning mist, and immediately wanted to train also. But, according to the customs of the times, girls were not allowed to train, and so she was once again ridiculed and rejected. One uncle, thinking she would give up quickly after getting some bruises, let her train - and to his surprise, she excelled and never gave up! In time, she became the first ever female to achieve the ranks of Master, Grandmaster, and now Great Grandmaster in the Martial Arts!
