Walter Okahara Dan Bon 31147. Sadly, he passed away Monday, 11 September, surrounded by his family and close friends and although that was the last time we saw him, Master Walter Okahara lives on in the many hearts he touched and in the Moo Duk Kwan’s unique history as his exemplary energy shaped it.
Respectfully submitted to remember an early Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan® Pioneer, who during the “Golden Years” of the Moo Duk Kwan® helped establish the Korean Moo Duk Kwan® through his instruction and involvement.
