Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan is a classical martial art originating in Korea many centuries ago, consisting of both “hard” & “soft” styles. Soo Bahk Do is noted for its explosive kicking techniques and dynamic hand strikes. It utilizes scientific theory to attain maximum power in its techniques. Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan is not a sport.
Soo Bahk Do is the technique; Moo Duk Kwan is the philosophy.
Moo Duk Kwan is a “brotherhood and school of stopper inner and outer conflict and developing virtue through Soo Bahk Do training”.
The Moo Duk Kwan name gives us direction and focus in our mental training.
Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan is the harmony of body and mind. We seek not only to prepare students for physical defense but to build character. Our art is deeply connected with the 5 Moo Do Values of History, Tradition, Philosophy, Discipline & Respect, and Technique. We have promoted these values since the Moo Duk Kwan was founded in 1945 by Grand Master Hwang Kee.
“We are not attempting to develop a better warrior but a better person.”
