Grand Master Young Sun Kang

8th Dan


Born December 7, 1942, he is the second son to a family of one brother and three sisters.  His introduction to the martial arts came through his father (a master of Judo) and his older brother’s involvement in Tae Kwon Do.

            Grand Master Kang was known as “The Bull”, as he knew neither defeat nor retreat while competing.  His accuracy and speed gained him the nickname, “King of the Roundhouse Kick”.  One of his greatest victories came while in Japan for the “Asian Games”.  There he defeated Japan’s Grand Champion. 

            He was president and founder of the American Martial Arts Association, once the largest single state organization in the United States.  Grand Master Kang, an ordained minister, returned to Korea in 1995.
