Word of mouth advertising is the most powerful form of promotion you can do for your instructor, your school and the art of Soo Bahk Do®. In his PVT message, Kwan Jang Nim H.C. Hwang encourages every student to take personal ownership for promoting public visibility of Soo Bahk Do® and many times that task can be as easy as wearing apparel featuring our art. The Moo Duk Kwan® organization logo or the Soo Bahk Do® martial art system logo on your shirt, or jacket, etc. can be a conversation starter and thus create an opportunity for you to use your well-honed elevator pitch to educate a non-practitioner about the art and your school. Take this opportunity to embrace your PVT role and acquire customized apparel that can help you realize your potential as an ambassador of public awareness for the art.

The chartered purposes of The United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation® include protecting members' rights to be uniquely identified as the only Moo Duk Kwan organization in the USA and the exclusive source of authentic instruction and certifications in the Hwang Kee's Korean Soo Bahk Do martial art system. Since its inception in 1976 the Federation has encountered multiple trademark infringers seeking to hijack the Moo Duk Kwan® name and long-standing reputation for their own advantage and when all attempts at amicable resolution have failed, then legal action has sometimes been necessary. One particular case required substantial resources in order to prevail and Moo Duk Kwan® Preservationists stepped up to provide much needed support during that time. For a limited time, you too, can join them and become a Moo Duk Kwan® Preservationist with your $3000 contribution or by converting your Lifetime membership to Moo Duk Kwan® Preservationist status and in doing so you will make a lasting contribution to the preservation of the unique Moo Duk Kwan® identity and the Soo Bahk Do® martial art system.
