Las demotraciones tecnicas fueron exitantes y dinamicas y a la misma vez siempre observando la diciplina del Moo Do. Definitivamente la estandardizacion de nuestra arte marcial era evidente ya que todos los candidatos realizaban sus moviento y tecnicas como una sola persona.

33rd Anniversary of Soo Bahk Do in Argentina
During the month of November, from the 9th through the 17th, the 33rd anniversary of Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan was celebrated in the city of Mendoza, Argentina. During this time, for the 2nd time in South America, a Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa was conducted. The event which lasted a week long, complete with training, camaraderie, and personal sacrifice, accumulated with a spectacular presentation by the 4th through 6th dan candidates representing the art of Soo Bahk Do and the World Moo Duk Kwan. The principal evaluation board consisted of Grandmaster H.C. Hwang, President of the World Moo Duk Kwan Soo Bahk Do as well as, Lawrence Sieberlich, Sa Bom Nim, Senior Advisory Committee member, United States SBDMDK Federation, dan bon 1815; Ramiro Guzman, Sa Bom Nim, Designee for Mexico, dan bon 16354; Francisco Blotta, Sa Bom Nim, Designee for Argentina, dan bon 19455; Phillip Bartolucci, Sa Bom Nim, Chairman of the TAC, United States SBDMDK Federation, dan bon 20571; and Pedro Vangas, Sa Bom Nim, Designee for Puerto Rico, dan bon 15552. The testing candidates represented the following countries; Mexico, Chile, España, Greece and the hosting country, Argentina. Immediately evident was the high grade and caliber of competence by each of the candidates. The technical demonstrations were dynamic and excellent and at the same time always observing the discipline of Moo Do. It was evident that the standardization of our marital art was realized by the technical movement of all the candidates as “one”. (Philosophy of “oneness.”) Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang was very satisfied with the presentation by the Ko Dan Ja candidates and mentioned that it was one of the best evaluations he had the honor of attending.
Soo Bahk!!
