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!

WHRDA Non-Profit Update May 2021

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.

My Experience in Africa

Saturday, May 1, 2021 - 5:14pm

"Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value."

Albert Einstein

I had a very good job in the Banking Service industry. At the age of 34, I was promoted to Executive Director level, with responsibilities for a product worth more than 100 million Euros per annum, and teams located in several European, and US hubs of the company that I was working for. I had worked very hard to be successful at my job, and I felt I had reached that goal, even going beyond my own dreams. I was successful. For quite some time I enjoyed that happiness that always comes with the sense of achievement. Something similar to that which a runner feels after a marathon: every muscle of their legs ache, their throat is sore from the intensified breathing and they are covered in sweat, and yet there is always a big smile on their face: they are victorious and have overcome the challenge! Most of them do not even take the time to celebrate that moment, and are already thinking about the next run.
