Sabum Nym began training in the art of Isshin Ryu Karate at the age of eleven. He began his tournament career within the year as a yellow belt. He was bitten by the bug and began to travel with the help of his Dad, Mr. Kwandrans Sr., from Canada to Ohio.
Mr. Kwandrans Sr. began training in Tae kwon-do about the time Sabum Nym was a green belt in Karate. Both enjoyed the kicking element of TKD. Sabum Nym began training in both styles. They received their black belts, each in a different art, at about the same time. Sabum Nym was a senior in high school and began instructing Isshin Ryu at his own academy in Medina. He soon realized that if he obtained his black belt in TKD, they could both instruct together.
