Jim Butin is recognized as a tenth degree Black Belt by both the World Martial Arts Ranking Association and the American Karate Black Belt Association. He owns and operates National Karate and Tae Kwon Do, in Oklahoma City.
Besides competing and winning the silver medal in the first World TKD Championships in Seoul, Korea in 1973, Jim also competed in Europe in 1974 with another famous U.S. team, which included Joe Lewis, Jeff Smith, Howard Jackson and Bill Wallace, against Germany, and the Netherlands. The team was undefeated in six separate contests. Jim is also a history general for the Sport Karate Museum.
