PostPosted: Tue May 23, 2006 7:46 pm    Post subject: Yang K. Moon and Jae hwa Kwon Reply with quote

I am looking for information on Master Yang K Moon and his association with Grand Master jae-hwa Kwon. I am told that Kwon was Moon's TKD Master and in the 1960s Moon was part of a competition team that toured Europe. I've gotten a little info from the Kwon website, but not much.

Does anybody have creditable information on Yang Moon's training and advancement in tae kwon Do, especially in association with Jae-hwa Kwon?

I believe Master Yang Moon trained in Houston, Texas with Grandmaster Kim Pyung-soo in the late 1960's & 1970's. You should contact Grandmaster Kim Soo. http://www.kimsookarate.com

I found out that Master Yang Moon retired and moved to S. Korea a few years ago.

I know this is and old topic. Kwon was a colleague and friend of Moon. They did travel all over europe together to spread TKD in the early days. Moon's official instructor is Kim Soo out of Houston.

Before he retired and moved back to South Korea in the mid-90s, he taught me in New Orleans. He had a school there from the 70s through his retirement. We frequently visited Master Soo Kim Pyung in Houston, and he had a picture of him and Master Kwon Jae-Hwa hanging in his dojang, which still exists in Metairie, LA.

The picture of Master Moon and Master Kwon became the basis for the logo of Master Kwon’s International TaeKwonDo center.

Welcome to KF, Jerrykern; glad that you're here!!

Master Soo Kim Pyung still has a dojang in Houston, TX with his son, Sean; a very nice looking dojang with quite a lot of students. Did you ever train with him and/or his son??
