You can also go to the World Moo Duk Kwan Facebook site and see his updated historical timeline, composed by Steve Lemner Sa Bom Nim, Administrator.

Kwan Jang Nim was born on March 4, 1947, born in Seoul, Korea, (Birth Name: Jin Mun, the second child of five).

Click the MP3 file below to hear the Kwan Jang Nim describe his family picture taken in 1957.

The World Moo Duk Kwan just recently celebrated virtually the 75th Anniversary of the founding of the Moo Duk Kwan.  While there is alot of material to show how important our Kwan Jang Nim has been in the development and preservation of his Father's organization, perhaps it would be easier to just post this collection of photos over the years.  You can leave your birthday wishes in the comment section below.  Enjoy the photographs.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND FELIZ CUMPLEANOS KWAN JANG NIM!
