James Beaton recently wrote an article about Taekwondo Grand Master Kim Bok Man and had it published in Martial Arts Illustrated not too long ago. As a friend and former private student of GM Kim's I have had a fair few interviews with him published in a variety of magazines over the years. I was delighted when James asked my permission to use some of my photographs and it was the first time that another writer has ever used my material, although several of my shots are on GM Kim's website with an acknowledgement to me. It was a good article and great to see more publicity about this incredible martial artist, who was one of the building blocks of Taekwondo.
