Moo Duk Kwan® Founder Hwang Kee and Moo Duk Kwan® President H.C. Hwang

Hwang Kee's world renown Moo Duk Kwan® organization has spawned schools and instructors in countries worldwide since 1945 and countless alumni and others with an historical connection to the Moo Duk Kwan® who have lost touch with their Moo Duk Kwan® roots and heritage.

November 9th is the Moo Duk Kwan® Founding Anniversary and now is a great time for current members, alumni and others to celebrate Moo Duk Kwan® heritage by acquiring official, licensed apparel that you can wear proudly year-round to share your history.

For the first time ever, officially licensed Moo Duk Kwan® apparel is available during this campaign in several name brands in a wide variety of colors and styles until November 28, 2016 when this campaign ends.  

Online ordering closes on November 28th and items that have the required number of minimum orders will be produced and shipped to arrive to you by December 15th.

Accept The Challenge!

Reading Time: 2 minutes.

A few know that challenges are actually opportunities in disguise and can't wait to accept them.

Will you?

Board Director and Lifetime Member Andy Arvidson Sa Bom Nim jumped right out there and issued a challenge for everyone:

“During the Federation’s inaugural Fall Membership Drive I am challenging all my fellow Dan and Ko Dan Ja Members and Lifetime Members to join me in celebrating our respective training anniversaries by contributing a dollar for each year you have trained. May 2016 was my 19th year and I have written my check for $19.00 and mailed it to the Federation today!   Will you please join me?


Sa Bom Nim Anna Oulashin jumped right in and rounded her contribution UP for good luck, then Sa Bom Nim Susan Fittanto elevated the challenge to a whole new level when she DOUBLED her training anniversary contribution AND added an ADDITIONAL in-kind contribution equal to her studio anniversary!

I also understand that this challenge has even spawned another challenge in Region 8 among school owners seeking to recruit the most new members during the Federation's Fall Membership Drive!


This is a bit reminiscent of the 2016 National Festival Silent Auction when Sa Bom Nim Bill Nelson was auctioneering it so enthusiastically that he had people happily bidding against themselves! 🙂

Master Roberto Bonefont then piled on with his training anniversary contribution big time and rounded UP well... just because he could as did Sa Bom Nim Steve Lemner.  A number of other GUPS and DANS have also donated but have not yet posted a comment on the Training Anniversary Challenge page.

What say you fellow members and school owners?

Will you accept the challenges before you during the Federation's inaugural Fall Membership Drive?

Kick-a-thons For The Moo Duk Kwan

Kick-a-thons For The Moo Duk Kwan

Reading Time: 2 minutes.

Ed Horni, Master, Board Chairman

Dear Moo Duk Kwan Supporter,

I trust this message finds you and your family in the best of health and spirits.

Thank you for your very strong support of the Federation’s and Foundation’s fundraising goals iand we hope you will continue your strong support to help us continue pursuing our Mission objectives and Chartered purposes.

The Federation’s Board of Directors has adopted kick-a-thons as the preferred fundraising means to be employed nationally iand we are asking for your support when a kick-a-thon is hosted at your school or in your region before the end of the year. 

All Certified Studios have been sent a packet containing “How To” literature and a link to an excellent demo video prepared by Sa Bom Nim Jim Harwood and which can be viewed on the Soo Bahk Do Institute. The video explains how kick-a-thons are an exciting and motivational activity that can connect you and our art to your local community in a positive and productive manner while raising much needed financial support for the Federation’s causes.


The Kwan Jang Nim, the Technical Advisory Committee, Regional Examiners, 501(c)(4) Board and 501(c)(3) Foundation are fully committed to this extremely important fundraising initiative and will be actively requesting full member support in order to assure its success and to fund ongoing programs to preserve our art’s unique identity and heritage as passed from the Founder to our Kwan Jang Nim and as entrusted to the U.S. Federation to protect and preserve.

The 501(c)(4) Federation and 501(c)(3) Foundation each stand ready to receive the contributions of those who are inspired and motivated to provide their support and donations at this time. These elements will drive the success of the Kick-a-thons for the Moo Duk Kwan®  initiative through your strong Moo Do Ja Seh.

Should you require additional materials, clarifications or have questions, please contact headquarters for assistance.

Again, thank you for your strong support!

In Moo Do,

Ed Horni
Chairman, Board of Directors
United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation
