Han Dol students who are signed in via Student Portal will see exclusive content in the following sections of the website:
Monday, August 13, 2012 – Today Han Dol Martial Arts launches a new version of its website at www.handolmartialarts.com (or handol.org). While the design of the site is changed in only minor ways from the site launched in 2010, the wealth of knowledge has increased to reflect that Soo Bahk Do students are not just training their bodies but also their minds.
A new Terminology section provides audio and written translations of a large selection of Korean words and phrases from the Moo Duk Kwan curriculum. Those students who have difficulty studying Korean on their own will find this resource extremely helpful in reconciling the spelling of standardized terminology as found in the Federation Member Gup and Dan Manual with the pronunciation heard in the Do Jang.
A benefit for full-enrollment at Han Dol Martial Arts combined with membership of the U.S. Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation, students now have the opportunity to register for the website's new Student Portal. Han Dol students who browse the site while logged in will see additional content which is exclusive to members, including visual reference for the Terminology section, expanded Shim Sa resources and new videos of standardized techniques including Sparring Combinations and Hyung as performed by Headmaster Frank Tsai Sa Bom Nim. Students may also sign up for Do Jang events via response forms visible to them in the Events Listings.
To assist in navigating through the new information on the site, a Search Bar has also been added to the website, which accepts searches with keywords that are three letters or more in length.
The Soo Bahk Do studio also recently introduced a Google calendar for students as a central way to keep tabs on the latest training events or schedule changes. Additionally, Tsai SBN created the Facebook group "Moo Do Chul Hak" for philosophical discussions based on the teachings of the Moo Duk Kwan, specifically in the book Moo Do Chul Hak, written by the organization's founder, Hwang Kee, for which the group is named.
