Park’s life was defined by a world of declining opportunity, and increasingly chaotic and dangerous political and economic instability. His parents were of Korean ancestry, whose families came to Sakhalin Island in the 1930’s to secure their futures. Instead they found increasingly difficult times and intense racial discrimination. Song Park grew up in a hostile culture, where just being Korean was enough to be attacked, making martial arts training a matter of survival. What began out of necessity became a life long interest and in 2003 Song Park earned his 7th Degree Black Belt in Martial Arts. His specialty pressure points and Kiai Jitsu – sound projection applied for self-defense. Today, Master Park is an internationally recognized Martial Arts Grand Master and teacher.
