(This history was originally researched and published by Master Frank A. Palumbo, Jr. (1999).
The students and instructors of the American Kang Duk Won Karate style would like to thank those martial artists
from various styles across the United States who assisted in the completion of this history.
By sharing your records, letters, and time to discuss knowledge in these areas, you have greatly assisted us
in maintaining our ties with the very rich heritage of traditional karate training.)
