My name is Hwansik Kim; I’m a full-time shooter, instructor, and husband. The first time I shot competitively was in July 2014. I am training every day for one goal: to become an IPSC world champion. I earned the title of 2016 USPSA Area 1 Production champion during my second year of shooting. Recently, I finished 2nd overall at the 2017 US Carry Optics Nationals, 2nd overall at the IPSC US Nationals production division, and 5th overall at the 2017 US Production Nationals during my third year of shooting.
I was born and raised in Daejeon, South Korea. Until my friend in the U.S. brought me to a local indoor range, I never held a pistol in my life. A couple years later, I was introduced to USPSA competition where I felt a strong passion to start training for pistol shooting.
From day 1 of my competition shooting career, I started researching how to be the best at the sport. My training not only includes practice but lots of analysis. Since I didn’t grow up playing sports, I had to learn more than just shooting. I have studied other athletes from other sports such as soccer players, sprinters, and basketball players. As I love studying, my focus in training is always learning new things and my mission is to share what I have learned with as many people as possible.
