In 1964, Grandmaster Kim became the first official Korean writer for Black Belt Magazine. Although his English was not as good as it is now, he did not let that stop him from writing diligently and reporting on the martial arts scene from his point of view.

The photo above was taken in 1967 in his office at the Korean Taekwon-Karate Academy, near the capitol building (Joong Ang Chung) in Seoul, Korea.
Below is a copy of his Press Pass ID card which he proudly displays in his Houston office today.
