Master Myung

Master Roe Jai Myung is the son of Grandmaster Kwang Sik Myung. From an early age he was greatly influenced by his father, who he has come to know as both father and Grandmaster. Martial arts has always been a source of enjoyment and fascination with master Myung. In his youth, he began emulating the world of martial arts around him. His lineage was unknown at the time.

Training began at the age of 7 between father and son. Locations to train were always changing, as they were immigrants and the culture of martial arts was just forming in America. The style, however, was purely “old school”, which meant strict obedience, repetition and always, effort. Lessons started with the basics of stretching, kicking, striking, falling, and the basic 10 techniques of Hapkido. Following his father through numerous seminars and meetings, the meaning of Hapkido has grown in depth and appreciation as both, its own art form, and also its own real tradition. Roe Jai Myung is currently the acting director of the World Hapkido Federation and Korea Yonmookwan Taekwondo Association.

History of Kwang Sik Myung's USA Hapkido Taekwondo Center

 

Our KWAN (school), named YON MOO KWAN, is rooted in the traditional aspects of Korean Martial Arts. In 1967, our founder, the late Grandmaster Kwang Sik Myung, originated the YON MOO KWAN school in Korea, and later established Hapkido schools throughout the United States and the world. He formed the World Hapkido Federation in 1973, forging and introducing Hapkido internationally, spanning a career of over 62 years.

His pioneering spirit led him to establish a worldwide inclusion of Hapkidoists, once only reserved for Korean nationals. He wrote over 10 books, including the first ever written on the subject and 32 instructional teaching videos that guide the beginner to expert level training. His open and universal guidance in teaching the true Hapkido has led to his international acclaim and legacy as the greatest.
