Grandmaster Derman B. Hodge, Sr.


Highly trained in a variety of martial arts, Grandmaster Derman B. Hodge, Sr. believes in teaching the traditional martial arts using modern scientific methods. For Grandmaster Hodge, the martial arts are a way of life. He stresses the necessity of balancing the mental, spiritual and physical aspects of being in both martial arts training and daily life.

Through the World Moosul Kwan Federation he has certified over 200 Black belts in various styles including Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Hosin-Do, Sil Lum Kung-Fu, Karate, Tang Soo Do, Judo and Weapons.

From the World Martial Arts Academy (International Headquarters) in Florence, SC, he oversees an international organization of over fifty member-schools and thousands of individual members. Grandmaster Hodge also believes that all Head Instructors of affiliated schools should be allowed to operate independently, without politics that are in so many organizations today.

Grandmaster Hodge is also the author and editor of several books and video tapes on various aspects of the martial arts. He has helped produced along with Dr. Dennis Medsker, a audio cassette tape and book on how to keep students motivated in training. He is perhaps most unusual in his dedication to the brotherhood of all Martial Arts. Not only does Grandmaster Hodge study and teach a variety of arts and styles, he also encourages his students to learn from all sources available to them, and not to have a narrow mind when it comes to the other styles or try to decide which one is the best, because all have similar techniques and movements!
