Apply To Test For Moo Duk Kwan® Dan Rank Certification

If you are visiting this page, then you may have already received an email notification from your Certified instructor recommending you to apply for dan rank. 


In the USA, official Dan rank certification from the Moo Duk Kwan® and a legitimate Moo Duk Kwan® Dan Bon can only be earned by successful completion of a Dan Test authorized by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and conducted twice a year by United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation® Regional Examiners (REX).

Note: Master level rank certifications can only be earned once a year by successful completion of a week long exam (Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa)  conducted by the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC).

After each Regional Dan Test, the Regional Examiners forward their recommendations for each candidate to the Technical Advisory Committee via National Member Headquarters. TAC then reviews recommendations and  forwards accepted ones to the Kwan Jang Nim for his consideration and potential issuance of official Moo Duk Kwan® rank certifications and Dan Bons.
