A gathering of SMK Grandmaster & Masters for some camaraderie and remembrance. Plus a bit of organizational information.
This will be held on Sunday 3/6 at 10:30 EST at
Don Tequila Grill
5625 Woerner Temple Rd
Dublin, OH 43016
You can let us know that you’ll be attending by selecting “going” on the Facebook event page.
Again, I’m here asking for help to collect history and lineage information. That is one of the main goals for WSMKU!
As part of this, I’m hoping to find Masters and student who are willing to research their branch of Song Moo Kwan! That research will become part of the information available on this site. Additionally, I hope that the information will help others find their way back to the family!
I have a Google form set up to collect initial information – Song Moo Kwan Background
Please go out and complete it. I may have additional questions for you once I get your responses.
In the meanwhile, I’m updating the lineage chart (found here) to have more appropriate field names.
We currently have information from the following branches (but there’s much more that should be shared).
10th Dan SGM Joon Pyo Choi
9th Dan SrGM Jun Seon Hyon
9th Dan SrGM Il Kwon Kim
9th Dan SrGM Il Joo Kim
9th Dan SrGM Song Do Chung
9th Dan SrGM Byung Yul Lee
I plan to expand the website to provide information about each these first generation students plus their students. If you want to get listed, provide information!
Something that every student who learned the Song Moo Kwan Chung Bong hyungs should have! If you’ve purchased, thank you! Also, please leave a review!
Moo-do Taekwondo Songmookwan OMAC Moogong-Ryu
KYE vision is trying to help to build a place where kids grow up happy and healthy, young become wise and strong elders enjoy peace and harmony while sharing life experiences.
Our Mission to accomplish these visions are:
ETAT mission – Education, Training, Application, Teaching
Moogonryu curriculum begins with World of Life in short meditation before and ends class
After ending short meditation with word of wisdom we begin with Mooshim (Empty Mind) 9 fundamental stances that represent most common stances that develops spinal alignment, build balance and strength and muscle toning while emptying all negative energies from within
after stance practice is done, moves onto Innae (Patience), the 9 fundamental hand techniques that encompasses blocks, punches, grabs etc. on the Mooshim the 9 fundamental stances to build accuracy, speed, power, balance, rhythm and proper timings to learn the application of techniques while cultivating the Patience.
And moves on Keukki-Jajeh – 9 Kicking and punching combination to develop powerful kicks and punches which develops stamina, endurance, balance, timing and real application against various attacks while mentally cultivating self-discipline and self-control.
We use person to person, target drills and bag drills in order to maximize results in a class time.
And moves on to the forms such as DaeMahng Chun, Ji, Yin, GyeomSohn, Choshim so on…
