Tang Soo Do Book

Front cover

Personalization of book on inside of front cover.

The first chapter of this book contains many charts.  The one titled "Moo Duk Kwan Family Tree" lists all of the students instructed by Grandmaster Hwang Kee and the students that they in turn instructed and so forth.  If you reference this chart you can see that Grandmaster Ye Mo Ahn was instructed by Grandmaster Young Tae Han who was personally instructed by Grandmaster Hwang Kee.  Moo Duk Kwan was a close knit family in the 1950s and 1960s. Grandmaster Hwang Kee had a personal relationship with Grandmaster Ye Mo Ahn and approved all rank bestowed upon him.

Interestingly enough, in this same chart you will find Chuck Norris who appeared in several Bruce Lee movies and later achieved fame in his memorable role as television's Walker Texas Ranger.
