2021 Digital Championships and Seminar Recap

Sunday, August 1, 2021 - 5:51pm

On Sunday July 11, 2021 the WHRDA hosted a special day of seminars and global celebration of Italy’s 20th Anniversary.  While there is normally a global gathering in-person each year for a world championship tournament and a week-long training conference, this year we coordinated world time zones to connect via zoom due to the continued COVID restrictions.

The majority of participants were able to join in with their peers from their local Academies & Clubs, as most dojang locations were able to setup a big screen TV experience for the event.  Everyone else connected from home, from cabins, or even from summer vacation settings, and the couple hundred participants moved through a quality online event experience.

Feedback and Insights from the 2021 WHRDA Digital Championships and Seminars

Sunday, August 1, 2021 - 4:40pm

“Hwarang Everybody!

The event we took part in this year was a unique opportunity to come together despite this difficult period. Being able to meet in person and share training together by learning directly from the Masters is undoubtedly priceless, but our digital event managed to  meet  our high expectations perfectly .

Centurion to Hwarang

 

One could have never imagined that in the 21 Century that the stronghold of the Hwarang Warriors would be in what was once the center of the Western Civilization, the Roman Empire, but in retrospect it seems as though it was destiny. It would take a man who has dedicated his entire life to become a strong warrior, who is of the most disciplined character and unyielding fortitude, living a life of military service, unknowingly being exemplary of the Hwarang Spirit, who would ultimately connect with its kindred spirit.

WHRDA 2021 Digitial Summer Event Announcement

Friday, June 4, 2021 - 4:05pm

I hope the spring is treating you well, and that the fresh air is invigorating your spirit.  As the seasons change, we must also continue to move forward with our life’s journey.  Of course the past year has been a challenge, and the many governmental lockdowns have inhibited our capacity to gather in-person, yet we recognize that the strength of our community and the bonds of our brotherhood propel us to expand to greater heights.

It is unfortunate that international travel and group events are still under significant restrictions preventing us from another year of our traditional annual Hwa Rang Do summer gathering in person.  However, it is essential that we still gather together and that we will still connect this year through the digital world!  Yes, this summer of 2021 we will be holding a Digital Championship Tournament, special live interactive seminars with Kuksanim & Dojoonim, and also have a celebration of annual awards, tournament results, and a special highlight of Italy’s 20th Anniversary!

IM JEON MU TWAE

Courage to Never Retreat in the Face of the Enemy

Now more than ever we need to reflect, understand, and exercise our Fourth Code. Our ancient leaders, king, and sage were all wise to establish a warrior code which can stand as a foundation for the cultivation and development of perfect warriors. Before any physical training, formation of troops, devising of battle plans, the Hwarang O Kae was written and laid down by a Sage Won Kwang Bopsa. He wrote down five simple, eloquent, yet powerful codes to follow for the perfection of a person desiring to serve and protect the king, the people, and the land by exemplifying what is good, honorable, and noble, the highest value being one of self-sacrifice.

VP Updates - May 2021

Saturday, May 1, 2021 - 3:17am

As we march forward into 2021, the WHRDA has been working hard to provide a more enhanced digital infrastructure for our schools and students. Especially during these challenging times of government mandated lockdowns, the path of the Hwarang has only become a little more bumpy, yet never ceasing. 

Hwa Rang Do® Global University: 

While the transition to zoom classes a year ago due to COVID kept everyone training and connected, the launch of the Hwa Rang Do Global University last fall was a major milestone. Not only can all students access their belt level curriculum material with high quality instructional videos, but we can also now participate in live interactive training directly with Grandmaster Taejoon Lee through the new Hwa Rang Do® Global Program!

Saturday, May 1, 2021 - 3:34am

2020 was a year focused on rolling with the COVID punches, and prioritizing the move to digital platforms in order to keep our students actively training and connected.  Despite the lack of ability to traverse in the world throughout most countries, we were able to connect through zoom training and through our own digital platform.
