Transcript A Way of Life Grandmaster Kim Soo, founder of the Cha Yon Ryu — the Natural Way — Martial Arts Association, has much to celebrate. Mayor Kathy Whitmire proclaimed January 16, 1988, as "Grandmaster Kim Soo Day" in recognition of Kim's twentieth year as a citizen, businessman, and teacher in Houston. In May 1987, Kim was invited by South Korean President Chun Doo-Hwan as one of four Hous- tonians to serve on the president's Advisory Council on Peaceful Unification between South Korea and North Korea. Kim modestly attributes his success to hard work, and the fact that karate "is my life, not my business." Under the physical education class selection, Master Kim teaches his system of Cha Yon Ruy, which incorporates Korean hapkido and tae kwon do, Japanese shito-ryu and Chinese chuan fa. The beginners' classes averaged 100 students who worked out in the spacious floor of Hofheinz Pavilion. Those passing the beginners' class with a B or better were promoted to the second, or orange belt rank, and allowed to return in the advanced. The advanced classes were necessarily small, allowing students at different levels the personal attention of Master Kim. Students could progress at their own rate, moving up one rank to yellow belt, or to the more advanced ranks of green, blue, purple, brown, and black belt. Students were also encouraged to display and sharpen skills at the Cha Yon Ryu Festival in November where ten students did, in fact, place at the tournament. Master Kim constantly stressed using natural body movements in all defensive actions, and showed how to use facts about the body when protecting oneself from various modes of attacks. Cha Yon Ryu is more than self defense. It is a way of life. "Most martial arts instructors teach how to protest on the street and become a champion in competition. I don't believe in that. I believe martial arts is a way of life. When teaching, I emphasize the physical as well as the mental and self esteem. It makes stronger students," said Master Kim. — Sandhya Sanghani In a special demonstration, a black belt breaks boards with powerful kicks while on his back.

Michael Black, black belt instructor at the Downtown School, occasionally taught Soo's Karate Class here on campus. 144 University of Houston Sports 145
