About Chang Moo Kwan
The Chang Moo Kwan is one of 12 other Kwan systems, or houses, that form the collective art of TaeKwonDo. Though all collectively identifiable as TaeKwonDo, each of the Kwan systems represents a specific style of the art. These stylistic differences usually take the form of minor changes in the set-up or execution of certain techniques and which poomse (or forms) are practiced. Some of the Kwan systems date back to the original Royal families of feudal Korea, while others have been created within the last few decades. The Chang Moo Kwan was founded by Supreme Grand Master Nam Suk Lee following the Korean War, and it is in this style that Grandmaster Craig Balliette has trained in for the majority of his life.
