Hwarang, DoJoo Nim,
hank you, Sir, for the seminars and training this past week in L.A. We learned so much, and it is such an honor to be given your attention and time. The seminars are the high point of the year, and beyond the knowledge we gain, the opportunity to be with our Hwa Rang family is a great joy.
Each year I come away from seminar with new goals, and with new appreciation for all there is yet to learn. Truly Hwa Rang Do is a lifetime endeavor, and with great humility I thank you, Sir, for sharing this Art with all of us.

My name is Nathan and I would just like to see that I have seen hundreds of thousands of martial arts websites and yet hwarangdo.com surpasses them all by far. also i would like info on the movie that was produced 2 years ago and if it is on video or dvd how can I get it and where? I only wish there was a Hwarangdo school here in Kansas. I am also in the process of publishing an encyclopedia of Chinese styles with the third book on Korean so be on the look out

I was in Hawaii in 1977 martialarts expo when i saw Dr. Joo Bang Lee in pearl harbor along with other famous martialartist it opened my mind about the power of chi when Dr. Lee broke the brick with a flip kick while the brick holder was on a tall ladder. i’ve been in kenpo and filipino martial arts for over 36 years now but i would still like to learn Hwa Rang Do.

I wanted to say GREAT JOB to everyone who participated in the seminars here in Minneapolis this weekend! I hope that all of you learned a lot and have a better perspective about what Hwa Rang Do is all about. The progression that one can take in this art is truly endless, so keep training hard to put all the details together and make them your own! I also want to extend a deep thank you to Master Lee for coming here again and sharing his wisodom with me and everyone else. Your time and efforts are truly appreciated sir. The future is bright and I thank you for your leadership sir!!! Again great job to all! We had quite a few more participants than last year so it is wonderful to see the growth of the programs and all of you who have made the decision to participate in HRD and strive for excellence. Again, keep training hard – there is so much to do!I wish everyone the best in all of the World Tour stops this year. If it is coming to your neighborhood – don’t miss out!

From 1987 to 1989″ I believe” I had the honor of training with JoKyo nim Timothy Spriggs. This was when he was residing in tucson,az. He was an incredible teacher and a valued friend. I havn’t practiced the art since he left tucson. But I still carry the lessons he taught me both in the art and in the heart. Someday when I’m worthy I hope to train again.

I also have to say that I am happy to be Sa Bu Nim Anthony’s student…He
is a wonderful instructor who still and always will look after his students. He helps us to understand Hwa Rang Do and apply it to our life everyday. So everything that I learned and do well is for him. Okay untill next time.. *Hwa Rang

The annual Hwa Rang Do Midwest Championships was held yesterday May 1st. There were competitors for all of the Midwest dojangs and clubs and everyone who competed did a great
job. It was great to see people step up and perform during the situations and divisions of the tournament. There is nothing like the call to action to test one’s skills and limits – tournaments sure bring that out! Of course it was also great to bring so many students, families, and friends together under one roof for the tournament. I am always amazed by the friendliness and camaraderie between everyone in HRD and TSD even in a “competitive” environment. That speaks volumes in regards to the participant’s characters and our art. It is just wonderful that people can compete and act with conviction, yet without ego and attitude. Keep training hard! Hwa Rang!

This event has made Hwa Rang Do history here in Arizona. We look forward to seeing the Supreme Grand Master of Hwarangdo return to Arizona for another special event in the near future. As this one event is ending, we are excited to have the eldest son of Dr. Joo Bang Lee Chief Master Taejoon Lee visit the Hwarangdo Phoenix Academies on his Hwarangdo World Tour Seminars.

Dear Hwa Rang Family, Once again I am writing in this guestbook. I would like to congratulate those who participated at the half black testing in Sarasota, FL. Just one more belt and a new generation of Florida black belts will be born. I’m almost turning into a black belt. A black belt is still a belt. I still have more to learn. I find myself at Hwa Rang Do more and more often, helping out, learning, etc. The one reason why I go to Hwa Rang Do more… is family. They are like family to me. I would like to honor my instructor, because Hwa Rang Do would not be the same without him. Jessie Vi is my friend, my instructor, and my brother. I would like to honor Master Ki Tae Yum for showing me that you can push yourself more than you think. Doing stretching and allowing him to push me down showed me that, there is no limit to what we can do, we just need to attempt it. Instructor Michael, who will correct and enhance my knowledge of Hwa Rang Do. Lastly, the Hwa Rang Do school, I thank them. From little ninjas to adults, Hwa Rang Do would not be the same without them. HwaRang Kam Sa Hap Ni Da

Hi, I often visit this website because I am very much interested in learning Hwarangdo. I know there are certified Hwarangdo instructors in the Philippines and I have verified their names on this website among the official blackbelts of this martial art, but I do not find any telephone numbers or email addresses or any means of contacting them. Can GM Joo Bang Lee or any of his instructors here help me find a way to contact Mr. Del Rosario, Mr. Lucas Nunag, or Mr. Enrique Mariano or anyone else certified to teach Hwarangdo in Manila, Philippines? Thank you and more power to all of you! I have long been interested in Hwarangdo ever since high school.

I wanted to say, “hi” to an old lost friend, Henry Lee. I hope he is doing well. I am sorry that I wasn’t better at staying in touch. Henry Lee was my instructor for a time at Laguna Hills High School – class of 1983. We were schoolmates there and the club he started was great. I hope he and the rest of the family are doing well. They taught me many lessons and I have benefitted from them in strong and subtle ways. My email is, email@example.com , I hope this finds you well. Sincerely, Jeff Taylor
