    I was reading recently about Dr Kim, Un-yong, the former head of the WTF (1973-2004) and it was mentioned that he didn't have a strong background in Taekwondo. Does anyone know what rank he held and/or what his martial arts background was?

    If you can cite your sources, that would be even better. Thanks!

    Going from memory, he was a Chung Do Kwan black belt. Don't remember his rank though. The source is A Killing Art by Alex Gillis, but I'll have to double check this if you're using this for a paper or something similar :)
