Mission

The late Grandmaster Ki Whang Kim was a visionary and pioneer in the establishment of Korean Karate, or Tang Soo Do, in America in the early 1960s. His impact on countless students and masters was immeasurable and serves as the inspiration for our association. We established the association with the following goals in mind:

• To bring like-minded traditional martial artists together to improve martial skills and theory
• To share philosophies
• To develop fellowship and a sense of martial family
• To establish a pathway for promotion and certification
