Master Maurice Roberts is a 5th degree black belt that began training in Hapkido under the Kido Association under Grandmaster K.S. Hyun in Chicago. He continued his training under Master Hyun Bae You, who was a Kuk Sool Won and Hapkido master, trained under In Sun Seo. After Master You relocated out of state, he trained, and continues to train under the founders of The World JunTong MooSool, Grandmaster Chu S. Ma and Grandmaster Beoyong Ma.
Our system focuses on the traditional practice of Kuk Sool-Hapkido, with special attention to the application of self defense. The training is centered around creating balance within self, while harmonizing with the things outside of self that disrupts the unification of mind, body, and spirit.
I would like to take the time out to express the honor that I had sharing the joys and benefits of helping you maintain good physical health, self awareness and defense, and/or even just providing a "healthy escape from the world to a friendly environment" with you guys. I would also encourage, and even challenge each of you to reflect on where you were physically in January 2014, where you are mentally/ emotionally now, and where you want to be in the journey towards your near future. The results of these thoughts are your own to either cherish or learn and grow from, but collectively they should serve as a reminder that as long as mind, body, and spirit are in harmony, the pathway to happiness is easier to obtain in spite of the daily detours, road blocks, and dead end streets in life. Please be safe in your travels during this designated holiday season, because criminal activity is increased worldwide during this time. Until we meet again, I wish you tranquility, wisdom, understanding, physical and psychological balance, but most of all, I wish you love.
