It is with great pleasure to announce that our Kaicho (Grand Master) Jon Bluming was presented his 10th Dan in Korean Hapkido, by the South-Korean MMA Federation, in South-Korea, 2010. 
The presentation was made at a meeting of the Korean Veterans Federation of the Korean War (1950 - 1953).

Kaicho Jon Bluming was awarded his 10th Dan in Kyokushin Karate in Japan, 1994.
Following is what Kaicho wrote in a letter sent to the IBK Dai Shihans and Board Members:

PS. I just received my 10th Dan from the South-Korean MMA fed of the Hapkido; they told me so in June last year when I was invited by the Korean Veterans Federation of the Korean war of 1950 - 1953.

So now your Kaicho has this honor from Japan 1994 and Korea 2010.

A big congratulation’s to our IBK Kaicho.  We are proud to have such a proven warrior as our founder and leader. We wish Kaicho long life and good health.
