him, take a picture together and then say he was their teacher. Choi told me he wouldn't show many techniques to those students, and the ones he did show, he wouldn't get into the details of how to execute them properly.

BB: When did Choi close his dojang? Lim: It was on June 6, 1976. He closed his dojang and spent every day for the rest of his life at my dojang, the Jung Ki Kwan.

BB: When Choi would make his daily trip to your dojang, what would transpire?

Lim: He would teach and practice hap-kido. We would have discussions, talk politics and play Korean chess, called baduk.

BB: What's the most important thing you'd like the world to know about Choi?

Lim: My teacher was warm-hearted and composed. He always emphasized practice—talking less and practicing more. He had no facial expression, so one couldn't see his feelings. However, behind his expressionless face was a warm heart.

BB: Can you tell us about the kicks he taught you?

Lim: He taught only 10 basic kicks to the lower body and vital targets. He stressed that it's very dangerous to kick the upper part of the body and doing so can lead to a fatal wound if you make a mistake. He emphasized that hapkido is not a sport; it's a martial art. Therefore, his kicking philosophy was to [attack] the lower part of the body.
