2014 KMAM-HOF PIONEER INDUCTEE Ivan Bergeron Grand Master Bergeron began his martial art training in 1960, in the art of Judo, and joined a Tae Kwon Do school in 1965; however, it  was when he joined up with GM Pak In Shyuk in 1966, when he found his niche. He continued to train in the art of Hap Ki  Do, and he earned his First Dan in 1969. That certificate was in the art of Kuk Sool, and signed by  GM Suh In Hyuk. These early certificates clearly stated that there was a strong bond with the Korea Kido Association, and  certification was recognized by that organization, then headed up by GM Seo In Sun. GM Bergeron has trained with a  number of icons in Korean, Filipino, and Japanese martial arts, including: GM Kwan Sik Myung, GM Dave Weatherley, GM  Ma Byung Sup, GM Ma Chu Sup, KukSaNim Suh In Hyuk, Guru Brian Smith (Maharlika Kuntaw), Hanshi Yamaguchi,  Hanshi Kuniuki Kai, Hanshi Ron Yamanaka, and many more. GM Bergeron opened his own school in Elliott Lake in 1969, where he has lived since 1957 and Elliott Lake did not have  much more than a few dirt roads. He has taught Kuk Sool and Hap Ki Do ever since, in one form or another. Today,  although semi-retired from martial arts, he still has a school and the primary Instructor, Sylvie, now teaches the art of Dahn  Mu Do. It should be noted that this art is VERY similar to the Kuk Sool and Hap Ki Do taught in Northern Ontario, as it  basically stems from the same root. There is no doubt that GM Bergeron is one of the few pioneers of Korean martial arts in  our area and he very much deserves our recognition for his efforts to bring Korean martial arts to Elliott Lake.
