Unfortunately, there are sometimes unscrupulous, unauthorized individuals who use the Moo Duk Kwan® reputation and identity for their own advantage and in doing so misrepresent themselves and their services to the general public. These acts are illegal and can result in arrests, court ordered injunctions and monetary judgments against infringers.
These “Joe Cola” incidents may occur from  ignorance and/or from the malovence of unlicensed instructors or practitioners seeking to capitalize on the Moo Duk Kwan® global identity and reputation earned since 1945.

Moo Duk Kwan® School Proudly Remembers Frank Trojanowiz Dan Bon#13333

Posted by on Jun 9, 2016 in Memorials, Moo Duk Kwan School | 0 comments

Black-Ribbon3

Frank Trojanowicz, 75, of South Scranton, died Saturday surrounded by his family after a brief illness. His wife of 51 years is the former Nancy Coolbaugh.

Born in Dickson City, son of the late Josephine Trojanowicz, Frank was a graduate of Dickson City High School. He was an Army veteran and an avid outdoorsman.

Frank began his instructional career in the early 1960s, teaching one of the first Korean (Tang Soo Do) karate classes in the Northeast at the local YMCA in downtown Scranton. From that point, he continued to plant the seeds of what would become a forest of well-known and highly respected students, master instructors and other grandmasters of karate. Several of these men and women would eventually become internationally famous for their martial art feats and abilities.

Bottom row seated; Joyce Keyes (19448), Russ Hanke (4137), Robert Beaudoin (5661), Ki Yul Yu (5311), Frank Trojanowiz (13333), Robert Shipley (4825).

Stand second row; CS Kim (2457), Paul Johnson (), Warren Adams (), Jeff Moonitz (17650), Andy Ahpo (10187), Joe Weeks (3596), Frank Bonsignore (15805), Arthur Pryor (), Benjamin Cortese (11689), Larry Seiberlich (1815), HC Hwang (509).

Bottom row seated; Joyce Keyes (19448), Russ Hanke (4137), Robert Beaudoin (5661), Ki Yul Yu (5311), Frank Trojanowiz (13333), Robert Shipley (4825).

In those early years, the “Art of Karate” was mostly unheard of and hardly understood. As karate was slowly gaining recognition throughout the country in the mid-1960s and early 1970s, Frank Trojanowicz, as he was known then, was instrumental in introducing many Korean and American martial artists that would later become famous in their own right. He is listed in textbook encyclopedias of the original martial arts, among others, as being influential in the traditions and historical development of karate as an authentic pioneer in karate in North America. He was always unwilling to use his rank and status for self-promotion or public acclaim.

Before acquiring his grandmaster rank and status, he was respected and admired worldwide by those who knew him or had heard of him. He was first an officer and later president of the American Tang Soo Do Association in the 1960s. Later, a master instructor with the Korean Tang Soo Do Association in the 1970s, and after that a senior master instructor with what became known as the U.S. Tang Soo Do/Moo Duk Kwan Federation in the 1980s. In 1982, he became a charter member of the World Tang Soo Do Association. The predeceased legendary teacher of Chuck Norris once said that Frank Trojanowicz was the “best” technician he had ever taught.

Grandmaster Trojanowicz was deeply and sincerely a private man who did not seek attention or recognition for himself, but unselfishly cast light on others. In spite of many hardships, disappointments and discouraging setbacks, he never gave up or put anyone else down. Examples too numerous to mention give credit to his generous spirit in allowing others to be awarded for success and accomplishments that he had promoted or engineered himself. Even as he watched the growth of commercial and sport karate, and the proliferation of questionable ranks and promotions, he always stayed true to his practice of giving others the benefit of any doubt.

Having been affiliated with martial art associations, federations and associations throughout his life, he turned to enjoy a more independent practice for himself and his students in 1994 while maintaining his local, but still well-known Scranton Karate School, and continued to enjoy the respect and recognition of martial artists near and far.

Perhaps one of the most important things he will be remembered for among his family, friends and students is the exemplary manner in which he lived his entire life in the martial arts and abiding by the traditional codes and tenets of karate. He stood by these ideals in such a steadfast manner, that his most loyal and faithful students always appreciated his core authenticity even as it may have been misunderstood and undervalued by others.

Grandmaster Trojanowicz possessed the integrity, the perseverance, humility and an indomitable spirit that encouraged the heartfelt respect and loyal obedience to his authority that others continue to emulate in the Way of Karate.

The legacy of the Scranton Karate School will live on with the knowledge and guidance passed down to his granddaughter, Master Samantha Kenney.

Also surviving are four daughters, Rebecca Kenney and husband, Robert, Scranton; Sharon Bonning and companion, John Notchick, Simpson; Cindy Poland and husband, Howard, Philadelphia; and Carrie Trojanowicz, at home; a son, Frank Brian Trojanowicz, at home; six grandchildren, Justine and husband, Dustin; Sami, Kerstan, Sydney, Emily and Zachary; three great-grandchildren, Addyson, Richard and Dawson; two brothers, Anthony and Joseph Trojanowicz, and many nieces and nephews.

He was also preceded in death by a brother, John; and two sisters, Regina Trojanowicz and Frances Trojanowicz.

Private funeral services to celebrate Frank’s life will be from the Neil W. Regan Funeral Home Inc., 1900 Pittston Ave., Scranton.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Speranza Animal Rescue, 1216 Brandt Road, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055.

Black-Ribbon3

John Joseph Basso, Esq., passed away peacefully at home on Sunday May 22, 2016, after a long illness surrounded by his wife and children. He was 63 years old.

John was married to Kathleen (Mueller) Basso of St. Louis, MO for 5 days shy of 33 years. John was a PROUD father to three adult sons Raphael John Basso, Luke Henry Basso, and Zachary Emmett Basso. He was a stand-in father to his nieces Corie, Elaina, Gina, and Chrissy, whom he thought of as daughters. He is survived by his brother Donato Basso, II, his sisters, Mary Caccese, Margaret (Peg) Basso, Jane Basso, nephew Donato Basso, III, niece Dina Basso, their husbands, wives, and children. He is also survived by his wife’s sister and four brothers, whom he thought of as his own along with dozens of nieces and nephews.

John’s Life had a wide-reaching impact on his community in multiple circles. As a prominent local attorney and 1982 graduate of Brooklyn Law School he was a perennial selection by his peers for New York Super Lawyers. He was well respected in all legal circles including the Judiciary and was beloved by his employees and scores of grateful clients. John hosted a local cable television show for many years called the “Law and Your Money,” where he interviewed many community leaders and drew attention to issues of local concern. He was a Past President of the Dutchess County Bar Association and was instrumental in many projects such as the first inaugural Ducthess County Law Day free legal clinic and the revitalization of the Dutchess County Courthouse. John served on the Arlington Central School District Board of Education for 6 years.

In addition to his very active professional life, John was Founder and President of Arlington-Lagrange Youth Lacrosse League. He coached lacrosse at Arlington High School at both the Varsity and Junior Varsity levels for over 10 years. John was a lifelong athlete himself, having been recognized in high school as a Varsity Captain and selected as an All New York City linebacker in football and Varsity Captain in lacrosse for Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn. He was also a proud member of the 1972 Hobart College National Championship Lacrosse Team, which has been recognized as a “Team of Distinction.” He had a deep love of the “creator’s game,” which he continued to play well into his fifties and that he passed on to hundreds of children over the course of his lifetime. He was extremely proud of his role of coach both on and off the field.

John was a passionate New York Giants fan, an avid skier, black belt in Soo Bahk Do, and was an unquenchable student of history, especially that of the Civil War. He loved to travel, eat and drink, but most loved sharing his home with his family, many friends, and colleagues.

John was born in Brooklyn, New York on March 20, 1953 to Marjorie (Weber) Basso and Donato Basso, M.D.

Mr. Basso supported the U.S. Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan® Federation and Region 2 by attending and supporting our National Championships, local region 2 tournaments as a competitor and mentor for three sons, Raphael, who also achieved his Black Belt Dan Level, his son Luke also achieved his Black Belt, and son Zac got 4th Gup Green Belt.  He will be missed by his friends at Baran’s Soo Bahk Do.  Alex Baran, Sa bom Nim and Debbie Lindemann, Sa Bom Nim, are his proud instructors.

Felix A. Nichalson, Jr., Dan Bon 12204, Region 5 Dayton, Ohionicholson

Master Felix A. Nichalson, passed away on February 23, 2016.  He was 89 years old.  Master Nichalson overcame great odds at an early age.  Both of his parents passed away when he was only 11 years old.  He grew up in the “Great Depression.” Along with all of this he also battled the ethic racial problems that occurred during these troubling years.

Mr. Nichalson served in the United States Navy, he fought during World War II.  He was honorably discharged.  Master Nichalson’s owned the first Tang Soo Do Do Jang in the Dayton Area.  His instructor was Master Robert A. Thompson, Dan Bon 1791.

Many words could be written, or said about Master Nichalson.  In retrospect though he was a gentle giant of a man that never talked down to anyone.  He always had a smile, and a kind word.

The last visit with Master Nichalson, Sa Bom Nim Genkowski and I visited him in the hospital .  He ordered me to throw a back fist.  He then proceeded to go into self defense.  All of this while he was in the Intensive Care Unit.  He taught up to the end.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

John P Neace
