Welcome Brazil into the World Moo Duk Kwan, Mr. Fabiano Mello Promoted to Sam Dan


Congratulations to Mr. Fabiano Mello, who after several years of hard work and attended at World Moo Duk Kwan events, was recently promoted to Sam Dan by H.C. Hwang, Kwan Jang Nim, during a ceremony at the World Moo Duk Kwan Symposium in Athens, Greece.

Mr. Mello has worked very hard to qualify as a Sam Dan in the Moo Duk Kwan School and Soo Bahk Do style, his dream has finally come true, as he now devotes his time to teaching his students in Brazil and is now the designee for Brazil.

Several years ago Mr Mello made contact with us online, and through the efforts of Rodrigo Cruz, Sa Bom Nim, Region 4 Regional Examiner and now a TAC representative helped translate early communications with Mr. Mello and assisted him in connecting with our Moo Duk Kwan.  Mr Mello took the initiative and traveled to Uruguay during a symposium met the Kwan Jang Nim and started on the road to achieving his dream of being a member of the World Moo Duk Kwan under the guidance of the Kwan Jang Nim, H.C. Hwang.    Since then, Mr Mello has traveled as far as Korea to attend the Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa Week in Korea and the Youth Leadership week.   Please help us welcome him and his students from Brazil to the World Moo Duk Kwan.

Welcome home, Mr. Mello and congratulations to you and your supporting students in Brazil.

In Moo Do,

Roberto Bonefont, Sr.
