Personal Message from Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang

"Shipley Sa Bom Nim was a special friend of mine since I met him in 1965. He spoke, wrote and understood the Korean culture more than native Koreans in some areas.  He is great part of our living history of the Art and loyal to the Moo Duk Kwan by his actions. He will be truly missed by children, young men and women, and all ages worldwide." -- H.C. Hwang
