World Moo Duk Kwan has issued a directive for Regional Examiners (or their assistants) in all countries to upload Dan Shim Sa candidate essays immediately following each Regional Dan Shim Sa.

Since the essays will be published widely, Regional Examiners need to implement a process for acquiring the permission of the author, or their guardian if the author is under 18 years of age.

One recommendation is to incorporate a "Consent To Publish" document into the Dan Shim Sa application paperwork process and when uploading the essay, indicate if the author granted permission for publication.

Download example "Consent To Publish" document here.

The upload process for PDF documents is straightforward and upon completion of a successful upload, the document title will display at the top of the list of uploaded essays.

If you encounter any technical issues, please email  support@wmdk.com
