Y.K. Kim Biography

Y.K. Kim is one of the most popular and richest Taekwondo Athlete who was born on November 29, 1956 in Korea, United States.

Kim received a taekwondo black belt at age 13, making him among the youngest in Korea to do so. At first he studied and taught taekwondo in Korea. In 1976 he moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina and taught taekwondo there. In 1977 he moved to New York City. In 1978 he moved to Orlando, Florida and opened Y.K. Kim’s TaeKwon-Do, his first taekwondo school. The school, on Colonial Drive, became the Martial Arts World, a franchise that Erin Sullivan of the Orlando Weekly described as “the McDonald’s of martial arts schools” in Central Florida. The school was originally on Robinson Street, then on Mills Avenue, then its current location on Colonial Drive. As of 1988 Y.K. Kim only claimed ownership of the East Colonial Drive martial arts school. As of that year the other schools are part of the American TaeKwon-Do Federation, which Kim founded. The federation establishes the philosophies and rules used by the schools within the federation.

In the mid-1980s, Korean film director Richard Park met Kim after seeing Kim interviewed on the Korean talk show Meet at 11 p.m. (11시에 만납시다) and the two agreed to produce a film, Miami Connection. Originally the film had a very limited release with no significant attention. The production of the film almost lead to bankruptcy for Kim. In the meantime he established his business and became a motivational speaker.
