One of the best known Martial Arts organization, that started with a humble Korean man looking to improve the human character through a rigorous course of instruction to build the mind, body and spirit, started in his efforts in a small railroad station house where he was employed. Since his early years, intrigued by seeing outstanding martial talent, he became a martial arts prodigy and eventually would grow his organization into an international Martial Arts entity known as the Moo Duk Kwan. Join us in celebrating this 72nd year of Martial Virtue and excellence. Take a moment today to do a hyung to honor our Founder Hwang Kee, and our current Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang.
