Official MOO DUK KWAN® pins

Learn about counterfeits and knockoffs here.

The U.S. Federation commissioned a skilled jeweler to create thirty (30) official MOO DUK KWAN® pins with one version cast in solid silver and another cast in 14 karat gold.

The design detail of these pins is very high quality as you can see in the photos and the pins also have an anti-rotation feature on the back that prevents the pin from spinning when worn.

Both pins come in a navy blue box with the official MOO DUK KWAN® logo imprinted in gold foil.

We only have a limited supply of these pins which are available for immediate shipment.

2017 Election of Board Directors

10-16-2017

Dear Dan Member,

I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. As the secretary of the Board of Directors, the Federation’s By–laws charge me with overseeing distribution of and tallying responses for all Board Director nominations and election ballots. In each region where Board Director’s terms are expiring, nomination forms were mailed to all Dan members eligible to vote and who had current membership. The top two nominees (or 3 if a tie between any two) from each region are listed below and each has accepted their nomination and agreed to run in this election. Board Directors elected in 2017 will serve your region for a term of three years from 01/01/2018 to 12/31/2020.

            Region 2:         Tony Le                                   John Kim

            Region 3:         Keith Wildonger                     None

            Region 6:         Board Chairman Appointee to be Determined

            Region 9:         Thomas Thai                           Elena Duncan

            Region 10:       Charles Holland                      None

As a Federation member you have the right to vote for your regional representative to the Board of Directors.  All active Dan members over the age of 18 are eligible to vote. All voting members over the age of 18 are eligible to serve as a Board Director. This process is outlined in and conducted under the authority of the United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation, Inc.’s Charter and By-laws which state:

By-laws Article 1

Section 1 Eligibility: Any currently active voting member of the Federation over 18 years of age may be a member of the Board of Directors.

By-laws Article 3

Section 3-A Individuals holding Dan rank shall enjoy all rights and privileges as determined by the Board, plus the right to vote in Federation matters if they are over the age of 18 years.

Please vote online or complete the enclosed Election Ballot and return it today.  Service on the Board of Directors is a serious responsibility and requires Board Directors to dedicate a substantial amount of time to conducting Federation business. A brief outline of the duties and responsibilities of Board Directors is available at www.soobahkdo.com.

As a member of the USA Federation, you have access to top Moo Duk Kwan instructors in the world and the finest training experiences available.

The Federation hosts A Moment With The Masters in conjunction with the 1st weekend of the Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa in order that fellow members have an opportunity to share a few moments with the wave of new Ko Dan Ja rank applicants and current Ko Dan Ja leaders and visiting Ko Dan Ja Alumni who are also  participating in the week long Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa experience.

For a brief, fleeting moment every Federation member has the opportunity to share a moment with the masters and experience “Oneness” with the most senior practitioners and Ko Dan Ja in the entire U.S. Federation as well as international Ko Dan Ja.

The Moment With The Masters is a wonderful opportunity that literally calls for action… it calls for attendance.

It is calling you.

Pumpkin For Trick Or Treat Held By Girl In Vampire Costume

Halloween is despised by some and enjoyed by others, but regardless of your perspective about Halloween I am sure you agree that safety is important.

Safety is especially important on Halloween when young kids may be roaming the streets in the dark and when widespread mischief and mayhem may be the norm, so being alert and attentive to personal safety is a high priority.

Adults and tots can both benefit from attending a fun and educational Trick or Treater Safety School offered as a community service program by participating Moo Duk Kwan® Certified schools nationwide.  Look for local ads or flyers about programs near you.

So have fun this Halloween whether you avoid it or relish it, just be safe and remember that you can safely Trick or Treat us by Text message the whole month of October!
