About Dr. Tae Yun Kim

When Dr. Tae Yun Kim 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, agreed to train her.  To his surprise, she excelled and never gave up!

She did so well at it, that she was the first female Grand Master to be inducted into the Taekwondo. Read more about Tae Yun Kim and the induction ceremony at Lacancha.
