1.Conversion Requirements of The World Hanmudo Association for Black Belt Practitioners of Other Korean Martial Arts who wish to convert to similar rank in Hanmudo Black Belt.
To ensure quality of Hanmudo Black Belters,there is no automatic conversion. Han Do Won, the Examination Body of The World Han Mu Do Association, does not allow automatic conversion eg Hapkido or Taekwondo 3rd Dan cannot receive Hanmudo 3rd Dan straight away. They have to learn the techniques and sit for 1st Dan ,2nd Dan and 3rd Dan tests. Only allowance is there is no waiting period requirement up to their present rank they are holding.(that is, no need to wait. Normally it is 2yrs waiting for 1st to 2nd dan, 3yrs.from 2nd to 3rd dan etc..All Black Belt candidates are tested by Grandmaster Dr.He- Young Kimm.This is to ensure all Hanmudo black belts have a high standard of expertise to the satisfaction of Grandmaster Kimm. Hence ,irregardless of rank or martial art style, one has to learn from the beginning the Hanmudo techniques.
2.Program for Hapkido ,Taekwondo Instructors and other martial art style instructors
Hapkido, Taekwondo and other martial art style instructors can attend a modified shorter program to help them learn Hanmudo in an easier pace as well as to enable them to incorporate Hanmudo self defence techniques into their syllabus.
To be a Hanmudo school representative and instructor ,one has to attain a minimum of 1st Dan Black Belt and be certified as an instructor by the Han Do Won.
