New Year Greeting 2016<br /><span style='font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; color: teal;'>by H.C. Hwang</span>

New Year Greeting 2016
by H.C. Hwang

Reading Time: 3 minutes.

2016 New Year’s greeting

I hope this message finds you and your family in the best of health and spirits as you are receiving a bright New Year.

70th_logo_nobkgrnd_755x796-142x150There were many meaningful Moo Do events that took place worldwide throughout the year in 2015.

I would like to recognize some of them as we enter the New Year.

  1. The Moo Duk Kwan 70th year celebration in Korea (October 30th to November 1, 2015) in South Korea:  It was a powerful experience to see how the Founder Hwang Kee’s vision (from 1945) has grown over the 70 years since the Moo Duk Kwan inception.
    .
    Members from different countries gathered at the mother land of the Art and strengthened their old friendships and made new friendships while sharing the same values and pride in the Moo Duk Kwan. It was an experience that strengthened our appreciation for our gift from the Founder and the Moo Duk Kwan patch, that has guided us toward our clear objectives.
    .
    I invite you to join me in continuing our celebration of the 70th year of the Moo Duk Kwan® with our actions throughout 2016.
    .
    la_front12307596_487771328062346_1972617521051778052_o.
  2. 2007_FEDPATCH_CutOut_j_150x149The United States Federation successfully protected the identity of Moo Duk Kwan® which was built 70 years ago by the Founder Hwang Kee.
    .
    The verdict and judgment was filed in favor of the plaintiff, the US Federation. This stands as an moo-duk-kwan-alumni-patches-various-v1a-cutout-600x600example that the US Federation will defend against trademark infringers as they have over the past 40 years, and they will prevail as they have in all cases.
    .
    This action and verdict is a victory for all WMDK organizations and sends a clear message to those who infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others. I hope all Moo Duk Kwan® Alumni embrace the spirit of “Only One Moo Duk Kwan” by recognizing the rich history of the Moo Duk Kwan. Our unity will strengthen our Moo Duk Kwan identity for all practitioners.
    .
  3. Recognition of leaders who were great supporters for PVT II: Your Vision Tour (PVTII) was greatly inspiring, motivating, and supported the transition of our young leaders into roles that are important to the preservation of our art and the future of the Moo Duk Kwan.
    .

    .
    In Seok Kim
    (Dan Bon 12) who was a student of the Founder Hwang Kee.  He was an inspirational to his students by providing education about the uniqueness of Moo Duk Kwan

    Vic Martinov (Dan Bon 10189) who was a role model for anyone wishing to be a true Martial Artist and to understand the value of “Neh Ghang Weh Yu”. He understood the Moo Do and its application in life. He further shared himself by Action as well as great stories with others. He is my friend.

    Jong Kuk Hong (Dan Bon 15856) who I met mid 1960s in Korea and had served the Art. He shared many stories of the Moo Duk Kwan with his students.

    Jack Helfgott (Dan Bon 26104) who studied at the Springfield Headquarters Do-Jang on September 1980 with me. He was a great leader for youngsters through his teaching career as well as volunteer for whoever needs help and support.

    Carlos Schiavo (Dan Bon 34642) who was an excellent practitioner and was a role model for youngsters in Argentina. I have fond memories of training and personal time with him during his 5th Dan testing in Buenos Aires in 2014.

    These dedicated practitioners passed in 2015.  They will be remembered in the Moo Duk Kwan history as well as in our Vision Tour stories.  They were great contributors for the PVT II efforts and supporting our future young leaders.

    I am looking forward to your continuing participation in your Vision Tour and your support of our future leaders in 2016.

    Moo Duk Kwan Global Standardization Demonstration at 70th

    Moo Duk Kwan Global Standardization Demonstration at 70th

    Finally, I would like to recognize and celebrate the Moo Duk Kwan standardization worldwide. We had very little time to rehearse for the 70th Demonstrations and we also encountered some technical and administrative challenges during our preparations; however, all participants felt good about the demonstrations and received positive feed back from the audience,  especially from the other Martial arts practitioners who were in attendance.

    Moo Duk Kwan® standardization worldwide was the key element for the grand success of the 70th Demonstrations.  I am proud to be associated with this process.

    Thanks to the Founder’s teaching, his vision and the support of Moo Duk Kwan practitioners worldwide, the success of the 70th celebration was made possible.

    My family and I thank you and your family for the meaningful 2015.  We are looking forward the 2016 with your active participation.

    We trust you and your family had good holiday season and wish the best for the Happy New Year!

    Yours in Moo Duk Kwan,

    H. C. Hwang

Spokane Soo Bahk Do® Parents and Students Kicked Up Their Heels

Spokane Soo Bahk Do® Parents and Students Kicked Up Their Heels

Reading Time: 1 minutes.

When Spokane Soo Bahk Do® instructor Bud Bolan launched their Kick-a-thon for the Moo Duk Kwan®, he even recruited the parents of students to participate in the exciting event. He backed up his request for parents to join in by personally sponsoring each parent for $20.

Spokane Soo Bahk Do® parents and students kicked up their heels for a good cause and had a blast!

"Spokane Soo Bahk Do® students can only signup for 60 days at a time due to YMCA policies.

The classes were originally limited to 6-12 year olds, but at my request, the YMCA has now expanded the program to allow 5-16 years olds which provides those approaching age 12 with an opportunity to continue the program.

The Kick-a-thon participants include students with a wide range of abilities and special needs as well as parents.

I was extremely pleased with the strong and high energy response that took place with the invitation to participate in the Kick-A-Thon, by Federation Members and YMCA Members alike, as well as the parents.

Their combined participation in the program was incredible!"

The Haircut

The Haircut

Reading Time: 5 minutes.

It was 1992 and the Lubbock, Texas Community Center was beginning to empty as we showered and I finished quickly and waited in the lobby. The last two days had certainly been an experience. How else would you describe packing 14 people in a motorhome designed for eight and then heading 600 miles across West Texas with half a ton of bricks and boards to give a series of Demonstrations in multiple cities hundreds of miles apart in only two days? Officially, we were here to promote and unify Master Chu's remote schools, but it seemed that togetherness and cooperation were the real theme of this trip.

As I sat comfortably on a couch in the lobby, I remember seeing Master Chu coming out of the dressing room with a towel in one hand and his uniform in the other. Kris Poole and I noted that he looked somewhat tired and distracted, but we figured it was because of the tremendous amount of energy he had expended in his part of the demonstrations over the last few days. After all, jumping over four people and breaking six concrete blocks, sparring 2 people, doing several forms and numerous other board breaking feats three times today plus traveling three hundred miles and doing it all again could make anyone look tired. I thought no more about it.

It was about midnight when we arrived at the local Instructor's apartment where we were to spend the night. Everyone was exhausted and looked like walking zombies as we stumbled from the motorhome out onto the apartment complex parking lot. Master Chu called us into a circle and said he knew it would be crowded, but we should stay together and accept the Instructor's hospitality so we would not hurt his feelings. Last night in Abilene, Texas we had trouble finding places for 14 people to lie down at that instructor's home and tonight there was even less room in this apartment, but we were all willing to try. Everyone that is, except one Dan who insisted he would go to a hotel so there would be more room for those who wanted to stay.

Once more, Master Chu repeated his instructions and requested him to accept the inconvenience and stay with the group, but the Dan insisted he would go to the hotel and take a couple of people with him so it would be less crowded. We were all beginning to get uncomfortable because he was being requested, by his Instructor, to do something specific and he was absolutely refusing. He was our junior, but we said nothing to him thinking Master Chu could handle any discipline problem better than we. For the third time, Master Chu repeated his instructions and still the Dan insisted on departing. Master Chu just stood quietly as the Dan said his goodbyes and departed with three others who evidently decided comfort was more important than togetherness or did not understand what our Instructor was saying.

We were glad the tense situation was over and everyone started toward the apartment when Master Chu called Mr. Poole and I to return to the Motorhome with him.

We stepped up in the vehicle which had been our home for the past two days and sat across from our Instructor at the tiny table near the side window. He just sat silently, looking down at the tabletop for what seemed like an eternity until finally, he raised his head, and looked right through us with dark, tired eyes and in that instant, I had the strangest sensation I've ever experienced in my whole life. It felt as if he had already spoken a thousand words when he looked at us yet, the silence was broken by only one lonely question, which hung interminably in the night air.

  • "How long must I cut my own hair?"

We stared blankly, confused by his question. The silence screamed at us but we could not make out what it was saying and then the screams became respectfully silent as he spoke ". . . Earlier, when we finished the demonstration and everyone went to the showers, I had to get my own towel. In Korea, someone would have been waiting with my towel and clothes. Now, a junior Dan refuses to do as I ask and my senior students stand by and do not say a word . . ."

  • "How long must I cut my own hair?"

There was that question again, and with it the screaming started anew, but now it was beginning to become understandable. "Why had we not taken a more active role in assistance to our Instructor?" it shouted! Why could we not see our responsibility to help him in matters that need not command his personal attention? He was always there when we needed him, where were we when he needed us? How much had we actually helped him to spread our art's benefits to others? What real assistance had we been to him for all he had done for us? Without another word he disappeared out the door and into the darkness as we sat in awkward silence.

John_Chu

Master John Chu

Maybe somewhere in his being he already knew his death was approaching and maybe this whole trip was an attempt to bind us together to withstand his absence or maybe the years of teaching students who quit and the endless hours of sometimes seemingly thankless travel and dedication had just taken it's toll for him to choose this moment to make these remarks to us. Whatever the reason, we knew we had missed something very important that our teacher had tried to show us. For nearly ten years he had traveled hundreds of miles and conducted thousands of hours of classes. He had 16 schools and more than 600 students but apparently not even two senior students who could answer his question. How had this happened? Clearly, our responsibilities were more than we had realized. We had plenty to think about that sleepless night.

Not many months later, our Instructor was gone and we were left to ponder the question he posed that lonely night in West Texas.

The togetherness of that trip has been enjoyably replayed in our lives four times since then; multiple times in England at the Internationals, multiple times in Korea and multiple times at Ko Dan Ja Tests all over the country; however; I hope we do not ever cause the other part of that experience to be repeated.

The Founder has said that man is at his best when helping others and if we apply that concept to our training and the relationship we share with our Instructors we may better ourselves and come to understand togetherness, brotherhood, prevention of conflict and harmony in a way that few people ever have the opportunity to experience.

No one is an island and no one can carry the future of our art alone, it is up to the juniors to help and protect their seniors just as it is up to the seniors to help and protect their juniors. It is up to the juniors to learn the skills of our instructors and to emulate our instructor's tireless and unflagging pursuit of learning and of sharing our art. During  his life Founder Hwang Kee requested that we make the U.S. a worldwide leader in human relationships and that goal can only be achieved when everyone does their part by improving their own personal relationships.

Take care of your Instructor, don't leave them to do all the work. Learn all you can from them. Ask for opportunities to assume new and challenging leadership roles and in doing so demonstrate your appreciation of them by your example. Dans and Red belts especially, learn all your responsibilities; ask if you are unsure. Trying and making a mistake is better than doing nothing. All students, see if there are tasks or projects you can do for them to free their valuable time. We never know how long our Instructor will be with us and it would be a shame to have wasted any of their priceless time on menial tasks. Pitch in and be the best you can be, take on a project beneficial to your studio, help run a new student recruitment activity for your studio, take on a project for your class, attend a special event and contribute your own unique energy to it, work hard and always be loyal to your Instructor just as they are loyal to theirs'. Be a part of our "Living Art,"  be active and contribute to it's growth.

We may already owe the Founder and our Kwan Jang Nim several haircuts, but in the future, lets not give them cause to ask . . .
