Wasatch Martial Arts will be hosting the 142nd Dan Classing & 2018 TAC tour at the Zermatt Resort, Midway, Utah September 27-29, 2018.


Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang, president of World Moo Duk Kwan and the US Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation and successor to the late founder Hwang Kee will preside over this historic event. Kwan Jang Nim and members of the Technical Advisory Committee will present exciting content in dynamic training seminars and thought-provoking discussions. The following topics will be addressed:
