Master Bob Banham went to America in 1992 to attend a seminar with Dr. Kimm He-Young. He wanted to see for himself what this martial art of Hanmudo was like. He was impressed. Not only with the martial art, but with Grandmaster Kimm himself. Dr. Kimm He-Young asked him to represent him in Europe and made a promise to come to England twice a year for the next 5 years. In return, Master Bob Banham agreed to attend 2 seminars a year in Baton Rouge for the same time.
Since then, Hanmudo has been the main martial art taught at his school "Chilsong".
