Today (March 6, 2022), Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang was honored by some of his life long students and practitioners at a small Sunday Brunch to help celebrate his 75th Birthday. Small, but well attended by members of Region 2, present and former students of the Kwan Jang Nim at the Springfield and Mountain Ave. Dojangs. Kwan Jang Nim addressed this gathering with a short but meaningful statement about the meaning of "Connection."
