Korea Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan Association

This is the home of the "Original" Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan organization established by the members of Moo  Duk Kwan who unified with other Taekwondo Kwans into the Korea Taekwondo Association in 1965.


Today, this orignal Kwan is headed up by President Jong Hwan Lee, who was personally selected by the late Jae Kyu Chon to be his successor (original Board of Directors dismantled by President Choi, Nam Do who agreed to final unification in 1978).


Grandmaster Lee served for the past 16 years as the President of the Pan American branch of the Korea Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan Associiation before being asked to assume the position.


In the last year of President Chon's Presidency he selected and asked Jong Hwan Lee to dedicate his life to rebuilding Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan back to it's days of global dominance, leadership and respect using today's modern technology and business practices.  He was also instructed to maintain a working relationship with the KTA and Kukkiwon in honor of past agreements with the Kwan.


President Lee vows to be a "Simple Leader" with simple solutions in a complex world.  He is committed to both serving the members of our family and the reunification of all factions of Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan.


"This is amazing, I've been waiting for years to be able to have easy access to the Taekwondo MooDukKwan and it's products, rank processing and events... thank you, Kwanjangnim Jong Hwan Lee... this will truly help reunite our family". 

Grandmaster Jin Young Kim, 9th Dan Kukkiwon & Taekwondo Moo Duk Kwan
