Moo Duk Kwan is one of the five Kwans, or houses, in the lineage of Taekwondo. Moo Duk Kwan translates to “School of Martial Virtue”. Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo was originally founded and developed by Grandmaster Hwang Kee in 1945, spawning from his many years of training in Korean martial arts. Hwang Kee began teaching his modified art, Tang Soo Do, which he later modified into Soo Bahk Do. Over the next 20 years Moo Duk Kwan Taekwondo as we know it today came to fruition in 1965. Our Grandmaster, Kyongwon Ahn, is a 9th Dan Grandmaster, once a student of Grandmaster Hwang Kee, helped to modernize and spread the virtues and benefits of Taekwondo across the world.
