The World Moo Duk Kwan® Heritage Program is an educational outreach program created by the World Moo Duk Kwan for the purpose of sharing and strengthening the legacy of Grandmaster Hwang Kee. One core program goal is connecting Moo Duk Kwan® Alumni who are training in Soo Bahk Do®, Tang Soo Do, and Tae Kwon Do and bringing those practitioners together across styles and organizations to participate in educational opportunities, training opportunities and events.

This past weekend, March 26th, 2022, Region 8, Wasatch Martial Arts Academy, and hosted by Brian Corrales, Sa bom Nim, USA TAC member, put on the Wasatch Moo Duk Kwan Invitational Competition, with members of the WMDK Heritage Program  attending.  Heritage members from as far away as New York, and California, attended the event in Utah.  WMDK Ko dan Ja from as far away as New York, California, Louisiana, and Texas also attended.  Close to 100 in attendance.   The experience, as you can see from the photos below, displayed a unique connection between Tang Soo Do and Soo Bahk Do practitioners.  The basic goal of the WMDK Heritage membership Program.  Congratulations to all who took the time to travel long distances to participate in this Wasatch Moo Duk Kwan Invitational.  And thanks to all the leadership in attendance, and the members of the Wasatch Martial Arts Academy from Salt Lake City, Utah.   One Moo Duk Kwan!
