Introducing: Grandmaster Dr. Ibraham Ahmed began training in the late 60s with his brother, Ali, who had come home from Vietnam and had taken Tang Soo Do lessons with R.O.K. Army instructors in Vietnam. He learned some basics from his brother, who advised him that if he should get to be stationed in Korea to seek out a good master and train very diligently.
As luck would have it, he received orders to go to South Korea with the US Army 2nd Division, and also was fortunate to find himself assigned from infantry to military office on the Freedom Bridge checkpoint. He found a great master to begin training him—now Grandmaster Sang Sup Kil. They trained every day possible at the Compound Gym in the DMZ and in the gym of Kim Yong Soo in Paju, Korea. Grandmaster Ahmed earned his black belt in South Korea. He was awarded a regional award for excellent poomsae from Grandmaster Kim Yong Soo and excelled at his study of Tae Kwon Do with Grandmaster Sang Sup Kil
