Attention All WHRDA Members!


Planning is in full swing for the 50th Anniversary Championships and Celebration. The schedule of events has been solidified, as shown below. You are encouraged to start planning and setting up your accomodations as early as possible.


In addition to the events and celebration for the 50th Anniversary, we've decided to hold a special 50th Anniversary Conference the week following with Dojoonim and Grandmaster Taejoon Lee.


This time is normally set aside for the Black Sash Conference, but considering the incredible milestone we'll be reaching, Dojoonim wanted all students from White Belt to Highest Ranking Black Sash, to have an opportunity to train and learn directly from the Founder of our beautiful art.


This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn directly from the source of Hwa Rang Do and a martial arts living legend. Schedule details are below. (Registration Today Online for Huge Discounts Before May 29th!)
