1st Moo Duk Kwan® USA Virtual Competition A Huge Success

On Saturday morning October 17, 2020 at 8:00 AM Pacific time Kwan Jang Nim greeted members gathered together for the historic 1st USA Moo Duk Kwan® Virtual Competition.

The Live portion of the event was held via Zoom video conferencing and the Prerecorded Competition was conducted through the Soo Bahk Do Institute

That amazing day will go down in Moo Duk Kwan® history as a milestone achievement by USA Federation officials and members.

The number of Live Competition attendees almost maxed out the Zoom session capacity while 448 uploads were submitted to the prerecorded competition and the World Moo Duk Kwan Young Warrior Showcase auditions.

USA Technical Advisory Committee Members, TAC Assistants, Regional Examiners and other trained virtual competition officials are currently working through judging all the excellent performances submitted by members nationwide.

Results will be posted as soon as available and medals will be shipped to winners nationwide promptly thereafter.

Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang has commended Federation Officials for the amazing success of this event.

Dear Virtual Festival Officials,

I hope this message finds you and your family safe and well.

Your creative solution for hosting a meaningful National Festival experience for members under the current conditions is greatly appreciated.

Excellent member participation indicates that they were very excited about the experience you provided for them. 

I too, am excited to see the TAC, TAC Assistants, Board, Regional Examiners and selected members working together harmoniously for our common goal and for the preservation of our art. Your use of modern technology to overcome obstacles facing Moo Duk Kwan members is impressive.

The Moo Duk Kwan was born amidst very challenging post war circumstances in Korea and yet our Founder persevered against all odds.

I am glad to see his spirit exhibited today by the Federation's leadership.

Thank you very much for adding this very successful event to the long list of Moo Duk Kwan achievements.

In Moo Duk Kwan,

HC Hwang

Every participant and supporter of this event has secured their spot in the long and proud history of the Moo Duk Kwan.

Auditions for the World Moo Duk Young Warrior Showcase will continue to be accepted until year end according to World Moo Duk Kwan TAC Member Daymon Kenyon Sa Bom Nim.

With the resounding success of the 1st USA Moo Duk Kwan Virtual Competition moving toward completion, Moo Duk Kwan members worldwide are already excitedly looking forward to the next big event, the upcoming Moo Duk Kwan 75th Anniversary November 6-9, 2020.
