This website is dedicated to presenting an authoritative history of the Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school founded by Hwang Kee and its achievements and growth from inception to modern day.
Virtually all martial art practitioners with training experience in the martial art systems of Tang Soo Do, Tae Kwon Do or Soo Bahk Do® have a deep historical connection to Hwang Kee and his Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school whether they realize it or not.
In fact, the Moo Duk Kwan ranking system (Dan Bon
) employed by Hwang Kee to acknowledge and credential student practitioners demonstrating skill achievements, has been mimiced by others issuing confusingly similar rank ID numbers to their students in an attempt to capitalize on the long standing reputation, credibility and authenticity associated with legitimately issued Moo Duk Kwan® Dan Bons.
You can confirm whether or not your dan ranking number was issued by Hwang Kee's Moo Duk Kwan® martial art school with a quick search in the only official database of legitimate Moo Duk Kwan Dan® Bons. (forthcoming)
This database of Moo Duk Kwan rank certifications has been carefully transcribed from the original hand written records of founder Hwang Kee dating all the way back to the Moo Duk Kwan's orign in 1945.
It provides the only authentic and legitimate record of practitioners who have earned dan rank from the Moo Duk Kwan®.
