World Moo Duk Kwan

Founder Hwang Kee  named his son, H.C. Hwang, as his successor in a sealed document that was opened by the U.S. Board Chairperson and other officials upon his passing.

The U.S. Federation Board of Directors and leaders of other authorized Moo Duk Kwan organizations around the world honored the Founder's directive and H.C. Hwang assumed leadership of his martial art system wordlwide.

He formed the World Moo Duk Kwan organization to unify Moo Duk Kwan practitioners around the world and continue pursuit of the Founder's dream and the long term preservation of Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan.
