|In the early 1970's, Chong Su Nim "Iron" Kim brought the Chung Moo line of martial arts to the United States from East Asia. The roots of the Chung Moo Style originated from the "Bagwa" line of Moo Doe around the time of the Han Dynasty.|
|In the United States alone, for over the past 20 years, hundreds of thousands have built their lives, reached their goals, and achieved healthier, happier lives through Chung Moo training.|
|Over the centuries, martial artists have known that the biggest gift they could give to others was to pass movements so that others could achieve good health, happiness and longer life. When someone does something for you that directly benefits your health and your life, you will never forget them. Earning respect comes from the recognition of others. Just as instructors have respect for those that teach them, the students have respect for their instructors. Through their actions, the Chung Moo instructors are building a new line of Moo Doe in the United States and are writing a new page in Moo Doe history.|
