Teen Student In California Dies From Bullying
Grade Schooler In Tomball, Texas Student Hospitalized From Bullying
Depending on oversight by adults to prevent or stop bullying incidents is a faulty strategy because bullies predominantly target their victims out-of-sight of adults who might intervene.
Moo Duk Kwan® Certified Instructors and School owners have more opportunity to prevent bullying incidents than almost anyone else because they empower potential victims to defend themselves when no one else is present to protect them.
Members of the Federation and the general public have access to over four hundred (400) Moo Duk Kwan® certified Ko Dan Ja, Certified Teaching Programs and Certified Schools across the USA who are dedicated to the Federation’s mission in instructing the Soo Bahk Do martial art system as intended by founder Hwang Kee and they are published here.
Effective January 2019 the Board adopted new standards of excellence for the Federation’s most highly trained practitioners through its Background Check and Continuing Education Program and all Moo Duk Kwan® certified instructors who are Background Check Approved are published here.
Even if you are not a Ko Dan Ja or school owner and you are interested in someday serving the Moo Duk Kwan® and the Federation in the capacity of a Federation Official (Board, TAC, REX, etc.), please take a moment to signup for future consideration. By doing so you notify the Federation’s current leaders that you are motivated to serve in the future. It only takes a minute to complete the signup form here.
The first Key Concept emphasized by Moo Duk Kwan® Founder Hwang Kee in his martial art philosophy is courage (brave energy ~Yong Gi). Sometimes summoning our brave energy to follow an uncertain path or make a difficult decision can be challenging.
Halloween is despised by some and enjoyed by others, but regardless of your perspective about Halloween I am sure you agree that safety is important.
Safety is especially important on Halloween when young kids may be roaming the streets in the dark and when widespread mischief and mayhem may be the norm, so being alert and attentive to personal safety is a high priority.
