Currently, the authorized translation version is available in hard bound and paperback versions.

The Moo Do Chul Hahk (Moo Do Philosophy) presents a philosophy of the internationally recognized martial art grandmaster and Founder of the Moo Duk Kwan, Hwang Kee.

Hwang Kee established the Korean Soo Bahk Do Association, served as its President for many years, and dedicated his life to the practice and teaching of the traditional Korean Martial Art, Soo Bahk Do.
