Statement Of Purposes Objectives and Intent

The Mission of the World Moo Duk Kwan® is to promote public awareness of, and assure the preservation of and long term uninterrupted access to, the intellectual content of the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art schools and the Soo Bahk Do® martial art system as created by the Founder Hwang Kee.

The World Moo Duk Kwan’s mission includes any future derivative content as may be introduced by the World Moo Duk Kwan.

This mission is directly accomplished through ongoing publicity, education, instruction and transfer of the martial art system of Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan from instructor to student, including but not limited to, its rich history, traditions, discipline/respect, philosophy, techniques and all other intellectual content and property comprising the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school's Soo Bahk Do® martial art system.

The World Moo Duk Kwan’s preservation mission is also accomplished by protecting the art of Soo Bahk Do and the Moo Duk Kwan identity from dilution, modification, introduction of unauthorized content, counterfeiting, misrepresented affiliation by unauthorized parties and all manner of violation of the intellectual property currently and hereafter comprising the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school's Soo Bahk Do® martial art system.

The World Moo Duk Kwan actively seeks to identify and authorize individuals and organizations demonstrating the desire, resolve, commitment, willingness, understanding and abilities necessary to accomplish these important preservation objectives.

Those qualified to be entrusted with these important responsibilities may be selected and authorized from among, but not limited to, the general public, Alumni former members, instructors, students, and others who can contribute significantly to the long-term survival of the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school's Soo Bahk Do® martial art system for 1000 years and beyond.

The World Moo Duk Kwan seeks to entrust only the most highly qualified and capable individuals and organizations with achieving these crucial objectives and recognizes that organizations ultimately reflect the qualities of the individuals comprising their leadership and registered student practitioners.

Providing authorization and support for the most qualified and capable individuals and organizations is critical to the World Moo Duk Kwan’s Mission since those selected shall ultimately be entrusted with the very life-blood and future preservation of the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school's Soo Bahk Do® martial art system.

Success of the art must be ensured beyond any individual’s lifetime and no individual or organization can be allowed to hinder or serve as an excuse for not achieving this objective.

The World Moo Duk Kwan recognizes that with all things of great value, from time to time there may be unscrupulous individuals or organizations who seek to undermine or wrongfully seize that which has great value, claim it as their own, copy and distribute it without authorization, or otherwise counterfeit it and disrespectfully disregard the common goal and purpose of our art.

The mission of the World Moo Duk Kwan includes initiating and supporting reasonable and prudent actions by authorized organizations or entities to ensure prevention of, or prompt cessation of, any such occurrences within their designated territory in order to preserve the purity of the art of Soo Bahk Do® as taught in Moo Duk Kwan® martial art schools, to protect its unique public identity and to prevent debasement of the art and/or misrepresentation of affiliation by unauthorized parties.

Only organizations with officially documented structure that is recognized within their respective country will be entrusted with the preservation of the art of Soo Bahk Do and be provided the opportunity to become duly authorized to publicly promote its growth through instruction and other authorized means.

Organizations and/or entities meeting the World Moo Duk Kwan’s guidelines may be extended an opportunity to become duly licensed affiliates and/or Trustee Organizations and/or entities.

Only these authorized affiliates and/or Trustee Organizations and/or entities shall receive the full backing and support of the World Moo Duk Kwan and be ensured of ongoing direct access to the intellectual property and content comprising the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school's Soo Bahk Do® martial art system.

Affiliates and/or Trustee Organizations and/or entities with duly executed agreements shall be authorized to register student practitioners with the World Moo Duk Kwan, submit rank certification recommendations to the World Moo Duk Kwan, order supplies, have access to educational materials from the World Moo Duk Kwan and request seminar appearances, training and other services through the World Moo Duk Kwan.

World Moo Duk Kwan Affiliates and/or Trustee Organizations and/or entities with duly executed agreements in good standing shall be the only recognized authoritative sources legitimately authorized to use the intellectual content of the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school's Soo Bahk Do® martial art system.

This “Statement of Purpose, Objectives And Intent” supersedes and replaces any and all prior understandings and/or written or verbal agreements between the World Moo Duk Kwan and each respective organization and/or entity or individual.

Affiliate and/or Trustee Organizations and/or entities must satisfactorily fulfill and continually meet all guidelines of the World Moo Duk Kwan in order to maintain their authorization.

The World Moo Duk Kwan may modify the terms of Affiliate and/or Trustee Organization and/or entity agreements from time to time as needed to more fully support achievement of its purpose and mission objectives as identified in this “Statement of Purpose, Objectives And Intent.”

I have read and understand this “Statement of Purpose” and agree to the concepts and spirit expressed therein. I agree to cooperate with the World Moo Duk Kwan as required in order to move toward, and ultimately accomplish the stated purposes and objectives as expressed in this document.
