Grandmaster Rhoades Receives Promotion, Appointment, Korean Name from Grandmaster Kim Myung Yong, Founder of Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido
Grandmaster Michael Rhoades was promoted to his 8th degree Black Belt in Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido by the founder of the art himself, Grandmaster Kim Myung Yong. The promotion was a positive mark toward the phenomenal growth of this art in the United States.
Grandmaster Kim’s blessing on Grandmaster Rhoades was further marked with the appointment as Vice-President of Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido—WORLDWIDE.
This appointment and promotion has placed Grandmaster Rhoades as the voice for Grandmaster Kim for the organization.
With these events came a huge responsibility, which GM Rhoades welcomes with open arms. Already the leader in his field, his ability to distinguish between the true martial artist and the personally-driven will keep Jin Jung Kwan pure in the world, as is Grandmaster Kim’s wish.
Working closely with Grandmaster Kim’s sons for the past several years have created a bond between them all that resulted in Grandmaster Rhoades being granted the Korean name Kim Dae Hun. Kim, being the family name Kim. The honor of being bestowed with the family name lends a personal, honest credence that this Kwan is exactly that….a family.
Looking forward a productive 2013 with Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido making its push to the forefront of all martial arts…worldwide.
