Hwang Kee's Moo Duk Kwan public identity and reputation are highly regarded and prized by many practitioners worldwide.
Probably one of the most widely recognized marks of Moo Duk Kwan school used by authorized instructors and students to denote their affiliation with it is the fist logo adopted by Founder Hwang Kee.

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.
The World Moo Duk Kwan and its legitimately authorized entities work tirelessly to actively protect the unique public identity of the Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan martial art system.
