The World Moo Duk Kwan® School Proudly Remembers…

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,


John P Neace
