Perhaps.... I've been to quite a few of their tourneys, but not recently. If you're going to one soon, let me know so I can get to meet you some day.

I apologize for the very delayed reply Ceicei, however my time has been very limited lately so its hard to find time to post here at MT.
I more than likely will be competing again in their annual Royal West Martial Arts Tournament, Which will be around April. Its held in Pleasant Grove (in the high school gym)
I know that it is still quite some time from now, but if you want to meet me or see me compete, then would be the time to do so.
Tell me what your thoughts are on that.

I haven't had the opportunity to ask about whether a black belt in TKD would satisfy the Master's requirement yet, but I will be going back to Wisconsin and Illinois this weekend for the Federation Christmas Party I should get a chance to ask Master Holden then. If not, he'll be coming down to Georgia to run a Judo test for us the following weekend, so I'll definitely get an opportunity to ask then.
I hope you enjoyed your Christmas! How did that party go and how did the Judo testing turn out for your students?

Hi Ceicei,

Happy Holdidays! The Christmas party was excellent (one of my students was awarded "Distinguished Assistant Instructor," which was great). The Judo test also went quite well. I promoted to Sankyu, and I had several other students promote as well. Master Holden was pleased, and my students were very excited (promotion in Judo happens very infrequently at my school).

I completely forgot to ask Master Holden about whether a bb in TKD would satisfy our master's rank requirements for additional training, but I'm on my way out to dinner with him in half an hour, and I'm writing myself a reminder now.

More later,

Ken

CeiCei,

Sorry that it's taken so long for me to get an answer to you regarding whether a TKD black belt would satisfy the "black belt rank in another art" requirement for master's promotion in Kyuki-Do.

I spoke with my instructor and he said that it would not. The impression that I received was that the final decision on what satisfied the requirement would be handled on a case-by-case basis to a certain extent.

In any case, Judo, Jujitsu and Hapkido definitely seem to be the most prevalent "additional black belts" in our federation.

Hope all is well with everyone; please let me know if you have more questions regarding Kyuki-Do.

Best to all,

Ken

I'm sure you did just fine on the test. I've been told (when I first started), that belt testing is more of a celebration- you've already been tested. Wish you luck anyways on the test and the tournament both. Sounds like your family has fun!

Congrats Greg!

I spent a lot of time w/ a group that had their start w/ GM Kim (I grew up in So. Elgin:) ). I know a lot of people who have trained under GM Kim. I've seen A LOT of martial artists in my 24 year career. GM Kim & his students are the real deal. Stick with them!

GrandMaster Park is also having a tournament in Billings, MT March 25th if anyone around here is interested.

I find it interesting you had your belt test but don't know how you did, we get our belts the same night as our test.

i think its a test of patience.usually get our belts about a week to two weeks later after the Black Belts have their meetings to discuss how each student faired:)

huh, I would have thought it would be a standardized thing within the federation, guess not though! hehe. Though I'm betting you guys have a lot more black belts in one area that do the judging where we have black belts come from surrounding cities/states to help with the tests.

Yes we do .there are alot of Kyuki-Do schools in the area and The one we attend i'm told is the headquarters of Kyuki-Do and GrandMaster Ok Hyung Kim the founder who brought the art over from Korea in 1968 still teaches at the school.Most of the local park districts and YMCA's are associated with Kim's Blackbelt Academy,not to mention schools that people have opened independently in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin .Just go to Kyuki-Do.com and there is a list of schools, but it does not list the ones run by the village or park districts .and i can tell you this ,the programs are always full:)

That's cool. Grandmaster Kim came up here for a judo/juijitsu/hapkido seminar last summer but unfortunately didn't do any demonstrating, he did give us a talk though which was nice. I'm pretty sure he's coming up for Grandmaster Parks tournament again, but unfortunately I won't be able to make that this year.

I was browsing Google and found this, so I thought I'd sign up and say hi.

I run A Kyukido Dojang here in Pensacola Florida. My main instructor is Wayne Hull in Salt Lake City Utah.

I'm glad this thread got bumped up. Looks like a fascinating style. My wife would be especially interested.

Red Dragon,

Welcome to MartialTalk! :wavey: It is a pleasure having you with us. I used to train briefly with the Royal West dojang down in Lindon, Utah. They primarily do Kyuki-do, although my purpose with them was to learn Judo. It is good to see some more Kyuki-do martial artists!
