On behalf of all the members, Black Belts and Instructors of this American martial arts institution, please allow me the opportunity to welcome you to our website and give you a brief explanation of what our national martial arts association can do for you.
I personally created the United States Chung Do Kwan Association, Inc. in 1967. That was the year that I returned home from an eight year tour with the U.S. Air Force. I spent more than six years in Korea. That is where I discovered this outstanding teaching method of self-defense, self-improvement and leadership training, called Taekwondo Chung Do Kwan (Korean Karate). I trained very hard during that time, earning the world title as the highest ranked Non-Oriental Black Belt in the world. Our textbook, titled Forces of Taekwondo, gives more details about my past training and this association. Our textbook should be one of the first training aides that you invest in after you put on your new uniform.
The USCDKA may also be referred to as a martial arts college. My job and office as the Kwan’Jang simply means that I am the "Head Dean" or teacher of Masters. There are many martial arts organizations in this country, but ours is the oldest and most refined, and by far, "The Best of The Best!" We offer National credentials (credibility & recognition) in the form of ID cards, belt promotion certificates, Black Belt degree certificates and nine levels of Instruction Degrees, plus well structured curriculum more than 30 years old. For more that 30 years the USCDKA has set the pace in America for high standards in teaching and leadership training.
Today, my wife, Grandmaster Brenda, and I are called The Sell Team, working together to meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of all USCDKA members from white belt beginner to the highly respected Black Belt rank of Grandmaster.
It is with great pleasure that I offer you this opportunity to join our team and become a proud member of America’s elite martial arts association. I ask that you simply fill out the application and send it in with your annual membership fee. I also look forward to you becoming a member of our outstanding Black Belt Instructing staff.
