Moo Yei Shi Bo Update

Volume 18 of the Moo Yei Shi Bo; the official newsletter of World Moo Duk Kwan®.

When the founder of the Moo Duk Kwan®, Hwang Kee, Chang Shi Ja published the first Volume in September 1960, he could never have known where we would be some 63 years later. We can however suspect that he would have fully embraced modern technology and the opportunities that we now have for sharing the Art that he devoted his life to. 

While Hwang Kee CSJ initiated this project, the political influences of the times prevented him from continuing it. Fast-forward 60 years and into the depths of a global pandemic, our generation of Moo Duk Kwan® practitioners developed a desire and identified a method to reinvigorate his dream and use it to strengthen our own connections to the Art and to each other. 

We are now the into the third year, and the tenth volume, since the reintroduction of the Moo Yei Shi Bo in May 2021. You will have noticed that we have introduced a new style and design. Like Soo Bahk Do, the Moo Yei Shi Bo is a living art; it will continue to grow and evolve with us, supporting the Moo Duk Kwan® vision. 

Like the content of the Moo Yei Shi Bo, this new design is guided by our Five Moo Do Values; it better reflects our history, tradition, discipline/respect, philosophy, and technique.

This Volume also coincides with Moo Yei Shi Bo articles being posted directly to the World Moo Duk Kwan® website. We encourage you to take the time to visit the site and share this new content using your preferred social media platform. This small effort on your behalf can have positive impact on building a larger audience across World Moo Duk Kwan® and the wider public.

We have also introduced a new section called ‘Instructor Insights’ and invite instructors from across World Moo Duk Kwan® and within the Heritage Program to submit content for consideration. 

Over the last three years we have developed good momentum and a steady flow of content, but we will always welcome more. You can assist by sharing content online, sending feedback, suggesting ideas for future content, and sharing the Moo Yei Shi Bo with fellow Moo Duk Kwan® and Heritage Program members.
