Condolence & Memory Journal

Master Kim was a great instructor who cared as much about your development as a person as he did your development as a martial artist. A man of great faith and character, the epitome of a gentleman and master. He taught much by way of example and I am in debt to him for that. God surely gained another member to His heavenly fold.

Dear Mrs. Grace Kim and Family,

We remember Mr. Moo Kim, our great neighbor, for his vivacious spirit, his brisk walks, his strong connection to his Christian faith, love for his family, and his kindness towards our family. We are deeply saddened by his recent passing, but we rejoice knowing that for him there is no more pain or suffering for all eternity.

Because of Marcia's immune suppression, we could not be there at this time, but you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I first came in contact with Master Kim almost 30 years ago. I contacted him on the phone about taking lesson in his Lyndhurst school. I trained under him for over ten years. He was always a encouraging person and took a personal interest in his student. The world has loss a great man
