The next Gup test is scheduled for Saturday, September 29th at 3:00 PM. Parents and students should arrive at least 45 minutes early to complete the registration process. Students must also turn in their pre-test documents before the test (i.e., “Bad Habit,” “Citizenship”). To receive an official Certified Moo Duk Kwan Rank Promotion Certificate, students must be currently enrolled and in good standing with the Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation. Expired memberships will result in certification rejection. (Click Here for Federation Membership)
See Master DeJohnette if you have any questions regarding the testing requirements.
Four students tested on Saturday June 16, 2018 at DeJohnette Martial Arts Academy. Two white belts, an orange and a red belt performed all the required portions of the shim sa for their particular rank achievement. Sa Bom Nim Tim Bennett and Master Darno DeJohnette graded the students using the new Federation Guidelines for Gup promotion testing. The candidates all did extremely well. Here are a few images of the shim sa.

I want to invite you to our new DoJang in Vista, CA. We are located at 1234 N. Santa Fe Avenue. There is plenty of room for dozens of practitioners, so expect to see workshops and seminars in the not too distant future.
This is the view from the outside. Hope to see you soon. Soo Bahk!
