Welcome to US Hwa Rang Kwan
US Hwa Rang Kwan Kumdo is located in the Washington DC metropolitan Area: Fairfax, Virginia, Silver Spring and Columbia, Maryland. US Hwa Rang Kwan is affiliated to the Korea Kumdo Association and the Eastern United States Korea Kumdo Association and governs the GWMKF (Greater Washington Metropolitan Kumdo Federation).
US Hwa Rang Kwan was found by Master Soon C. Chang (7th dan) in the early 1990s, and strived in the United States by achieving outstanding perfomances at all major tournaments. Our dojang not only aims to achieve high levels of athletic performance through kumdo, but more importantly, in the development of a person’s body, mind and character based on proper martial art philosophies and training. We believe that kumdo is a tool to build relationships, and build one’s character for a better lifestyle.
We emphasize respect, courtesy, and humility at our school and through Kumdo we have established a family-like micro community. US Hwa Rang Kwan has become more than just a martial art school. With more than 20 years of tradition and history we have established a community of teamwork and leadership and we hope to carry this tradition over to our next generations.
