Moo Duk Kwan
The Moo Duk Kwan was founded by Kwan Jang Nim (Grandmaster) Hwang Kee on November 9th 1945 in Seoul, Republic of Korea. Moo Duk Kwan translates as School of Martial Virtue or “Style to teach Moo (military) and Duk (virtue / ethics / discipline) through training in the martial arts”. The Moo Duk Kwan philosophy is based on the teachings of Confucius and the ideals of Moo Do (martial virtue). The emphasis is on the development of the self, and an integration of mind and body.
The Moo Duk Kwan system teaches its members not only the techniques of the martial art Soo Bahk Do, but also ethical and Moo Do discipline; an aspect maintained as a precious tradition. For further information on the history of the Moo Duk Kwan, visit the World Moo Duk Kwan website.
