KIM, Bok-man (born December 1934, Korea), 11th dan, is an early pioneer of Taekwondo in the 1950s and 1960s in South East Asia, particularly Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore. Kim is also the founder of Chun Kuhn Do.
Kim started martial arts training in the Korean art of Taekyun in 1941 at the age of 7. While he was a master sergeant in the Korean army, he was called to Malaysia by General Choi Hong Hi, Korea's ambassador at the time, to teach taekwondo to members of the government party in Malaysia and subsequently to develop Taekwondo, particularly some of the forms created by General Choi, and another martial art called Chun Kuhn Taekwondo.
