THE PURPOSE OF THE WORLD MOOSUL KWAN FEDERATION

The World Moosul Kwan Federation has been formed to provide qualified support, guidance, and unity for students and instructors of all martial arts. We want to produce the traditional oriental martial arts, foster genuine cooperation and fellowship between reputable martial artists and martial arts organizations, and develop scientific methods for practicing and teaching the martial arts.

THE WORLD MOOSUL KWAN FEDERATION MISSION STATEMENT

To preserve the traditional martial arts; to foster genuine cooperation and fellowship between martial artists of all ranks, arts and styles; to develop and teach scientific methods for the practicing and teaching of the traditional martial arts.

 


The World Moosul Kwan Federation is a bona fide organization of continuous nature providing technical and administrative support to its affiliated schools and general membership while assuring high standards of quality in training for its students.

We are dedicated to the preservation of the traditional aspects of all martial arts while ensuring that students are being taught only realistic and truly effective techniques of self-defense and the high moral standards inherent in the pursuit of martial arts excellence.

Through its adherence to modern scientific concepts for teaching and practicing the traditional martial arts, this federation provides a true medium by which the opinions, ideas, developments and experiences of its members can be shared and ultimately benefit all members.

We are sworn to the development of a system of testing and promotion which guarantees pride of achievement to each student regardless of grade or degree. Since the World Moosul Kwan Federation admits martial artists of several arts and styles, we offer "technical" promotion examinations as well as traditional promotional examinations.

The coveted rank of "Black Belt" is awarded by the World Moosul Kwan Federation only to those who have adhered to the high standards set by the World Moosul Kwan Federation and who have exhibited exceptional proficiency in the understanding, execution and application ofGrandmaster Derman B. Hodge, Sr. techniques of the degree for which they are testing.

WHAT WE ARE NOT

We are not a diploma mill. We are not a "sports only" organization.
