Nuno Damaso is a Martial Arts and Health Coach, Taekwondo 7 Dan, World European TKD Medalist, Taichi, Qigong & Yoga Instructor, and TCM Therapist.

He was born on 17.01.1965 in Lisbon/Portugal. When he was 5 years old, his family came to Switzerland. At the age of 14, he discovered a great passion for Taekwondo. From the very beginning, his passion led him to train daily and live only for this sport. The dynamic kicks and the strict and disciplined training completely convinced him. Three years later, Nuno became a 1st Dan black belt and won his first senior Swiss championship, he was only 17 years old.

In 1987, Nuno made his big international breakthrough with a bronze medal at the World Championships in Barcelona. One year later, he confirmed his performance and became a European vice-champion in Ankara. He competed in 5 European and 4 World Championships during the almost 10 years of his international career.

To share this experience and pursue his passion, Nuno opened the Kim Taekwondo School in Basel in 1992. Since then, Nuno has dedicated himself entirely to Taekwondo and Taichi, Qigong, Yoga, and TCM. Nuno Damaso acquired his in-depth knowledge of martial arts through training and extended stays in Asia, particularly in Korea and China.
