Hwa Rang Kwan, The School of Flowering Youth, is named after the Hwa Rang, the most famous warriors of ancient Korea. In 1961, the first Hwa Rang Kwan school in the West Coast was founded by Grand Master D.K. Shin. Our master, Sabum-nim Robert Morey, a 5th Degree Black Belt, was and still is a student under Grand Master Shin. Master Morey founded Hwa Rang Kwan Napa in 2010 and, with Kyosa-nim Niki Camerin, Hwa Rang Kwan Sonoma in January 2021.
We are a traditional Martial Arts school--we follow the tenets of Taekwondo of Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit. We practice in a respectful and welcoming environment where all students of all levels and ages are welcome. Following Grand Master Shin’s tradition, we teach Taekwondo, Hapkido and Kumdo. We also follow the traditional Olympic-style Taekwondo training that is officially recognized by the World Taekwondo Federation.
