    I am trying to get additional information for my Dojang so we can continue to build our “Family Tree”.

    We are ​a direct lineage to the Kang Duk Won through our Master Bent, Master Topper, Master Goodman, and Mr. Harper, all whom studied under Grandmaster Dr. Sang Kee Paik, who in-turn studied under Kim Ki Whang and Yoon Byung-In, as well as Chul Hee Park, the Co-Founder of the Kang Duk Won.

    We would like to show more lineage of our connection to the Kang Duk Won in our Dojang, including photographs, banners, posters, etc.

    Thank you for your help.
