On behalf of all the members, Black Belts and Instructors of this American martial arts institution, please allow me the opportunity to welcome you to our website and give you a brief explanation of what our national Taekwondo association can do for you.

Sr. Grandmaster Edward B. Sell personally created the United States Chung Do Kwan Association, Inc. in 1967. That was the year that he returned home from an eight year tour with the U.S. Air Force. He spent more than six years in Korea. That is where he discovered this outstanding teaching method of self-defense, self-improvement and leadership training, called Taekwondo Chung Do Kwan (Korean Karate). He trained very hard during that time, earning the world title as the highest ranked Black Belt in the world (outside a native Korean). Our textbook, titled Forces of Taekwondo, gives more details about his past training and this association. Our textbook should be one of the first training aides that you invest in after you put on your new uniform. (More information on Sr. Grandmaster Edward B. Sell can be found at tkd.GrandmasterEdwardSell.com) 

The U.S. Chung Do Kwan Association, Inc. can be referred to as a “martial arts college”. My job and office as the Kwan’Jang simply means that I am the “Head Dean” or teacher of Masters. There are many martial arts organizations in this country, but ours is the oldest and most refined, and by far, “The Best of The Best!” We offer National credentials (credibility & recognition) in the form of membership (ID) cards, belt promotion certificates, Black Belt degree certificates and nine levels of Instructor Degrees, a well structured curriculum that has a proven track record of success for over 40 years, training resources (downloads, books, e-books, DVD’s, and YouTube. Visit our online Pro-shop for Training Resources to help you on your path. For almost five decades, theU.S. Chung Do Kwan Association, Inc. has set the pace in America and around the world for high standards in teaching and leadership training in martial arts.

Today, our staff continues working together to meet the physical, mental and spiritual needs of all U.S. Chung Do Kwan Association, Inc. members from white belt beginner to the highly respected Black Belt rank of Grandmaster.

It is with great pleasure that I offer you this opportunity to join our team and become a proud member of America’s elite martial arts association.
