On November 9th, 1945 Hwang Kee founded the Moo Duk Kwan. Today, on November 9th, 2019 we celebrate our 74th Anniversary and the special launch of the much anticipated World Moo Duk Kwan Heritage Membership Program.
The World Moo Duk Kwan® Heritage Membership Program is an educational partnership created for the purpose of sharing and strengthening the legacy of Grandmaster Hwang, Kee. By reconnecting Moo Duk Kwan Alumni in Soo Bahk Do, Tang Soo Do, and Tae Kwon Do, the program will bring practitioners together across styles and organizations through training opportunities and events.
Moo Duk Kwan® Alumni with an original Dan Bon and practitioners with lineage to the Moo Duk Kwan® can apply to become recognized World Moo Duk Kwan® Heritage Members.
