Good day everyone,
I hope you and your families are well.
As we continue to endure the global crisis of the CORVID 19 pandemic, it has become apparent that a return to normal activity and previously scheduled events is still in the distant future. For this reason I have made the decision to postpone the 75th Anniversary of the Moo Duk Kwan celebration scheduled for this October in Seoul, Korea. Personal, social, and economic hardships have created an environment requiring all of us to re-purpose our lives and essential activities toward our health, recovery, and stabilization.
The new tentative dates are as follows:
October 19-25 2021 (Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa, Kae Myung Facility, Ganghwa Island)
October 25-27 2021 , 75th Anniversary of the Moo Duk Kwan celebration (Same hotel venue as previously announced).
For those who have already committed financially to this year's event, return reimbursements will be fully honored.
It is my hope and sincere wish to see you all safely through this time of hardship, and to join me and the Moo Duk Kwan family in Seoul next year. My best wishes for you during this difficult time.
President, World Moo Duk Kwan
