And so it begins again!  This is the third Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa being conducted in 2022.  First, there was Korea, then the USA, and now in Zone 4, Argentina!  Below are the TAC and Designees involved in teaching this Shim Sa, another 7 day ordeal of intensive training in the Art of Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan.  This unique approach of reaching the level of Ko Dan Ja in the Moo Duk Kwan will be no picnic, and achieving the next level of expertise for those who are Ko Dan Ja, will be tested on their grasp of Moo Do.  Many of the candidates upon being invited to attend, begin training months before their evaluations take place, some have been preparing for years.

Some will be successful, others will be asked to return the following year.  Successful or not, they will all have survived the week long test of strength, physical toughness and mental discipline that is needed to achieve the level of Ko Dan Ja.

Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang, will be presiding and providing critical guidance and instruction throughout the entire week.  Thank you, Kwan Jang Nim for your endless energy and guidance that you give us during all of the Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa.  We are grateful.

As always, we all wish, the candidates, visitors, and instructors, a wonderful Moo Do Experience in the spirit of Moo Duk Kwan.
