GRAND MASTER BUSHMAN

Grand Master Bushman is the only Master or Teacher or Student to have trained and taught for Grand Master Kim for over 42 years.  Those who started before Grand Master Bushman retired many years ago, and those who started after him were far behind him in years and rank.

He began in 1972 under Grand Master I K Kim and has 2nd dan (1978) and 3rd dan (1981) black belt certificates signed by Grand Master Ro.

Grand Master Bushman promoted to 8th dan black belt in October 2011 under Grand Master Kim (see videos). Grand Master Bushman has 42 years of training and volunteer teaching under Grand Master I K Kim, longer than any other student of Grand Master Kim. With Grand Master Kim’s passing Grand Master Bushman formed R Bushman Tae Kwon Do Inc. in 2015, taking all of the techniques of Ja Be Ryu Tae Kwon Do and adding the chi flow and energy work of Sun Do Taoist Healing Arts. See the Sun Do page on our website.

Testimonials

  • We switched from another school recently and the difference in discipline and personal attention is extraordinary. Grand Master Bushman explains each move in order to allow the student to truly understand how and why it would be used. This is taught with the respect and skill that it should be taught by knowledgeable instructors.

  • Hi Mr.Bushman,
    Thank you for being a part of ____'s team. For the past year, he has lived with us as a foster child. We are in the process of adopting him, hopefully by the end of the summer. You are part of a team of teachers and therapists who are making a difference in his life, and we very much appreciate that. Thank you for your patience with him. Developmentally he has missed much, and we are hoping that TKD will help him catch up SOME in the areas of patience, concentration, coordination, perseverance, and confidence. Please keep patiently pushing him to work. He has never been expected to do anything before he came to us, but we expect him to learn how to work to achieve.

    So again, thank you for being a part of his team. Your compassion, patience, and perseverance are making the difference in the life of a lost boy, who is on the path to his own goodness.

  • Hi Master Bushman,
    I forgot how the subject came up, but I mentioned to Grand Master Kim how good you look when you do your forms. We were discussing the demo at the tournament. He said 'there is no one who can touch you.' There was a lot of pride in his voice when he spoke. He said you have very clean forms and excellent technique. He also said that 'if these so-called Masters put themselves at your level, they are very sadly mistaken' I thought you would like to know.
