Alliance Taekwondo Master Earns Hapkido Master Degree

On Saturday, February 25th, Alliance general director Master Devon Waldron passed the exam for 4th degree Master in Hapkido.  An honor and a privilege, the rank of Master allows the instructor to run exams and certify students through blackbelt rank, and earns the Master’s school certification as an official Cchung-Ryoung Hapkido training hall.

Master Devon Waldron already holds a 4th degree Master rank in Taekwondo, as well as being an authorized and ranked instructor in the Bak Shaolin Eagle Claw system.  Now he adds 4th degree in Hapkido – a Korean martial art descended from techniques taught to dynastic royalty, which he has been studying for 18 years – to his credentials.  Just as with Taekwondo, the rank of 4th Dan Master is one of the most significant, because it represents years of study and dedication, and when achieved confers a host of responsibilities and privileges upon the recipient.  A Master degree in martial arts is analogous with an academic Master degree in that the holder of such a degree is considered to be highly knowledgeable and proficient in the subject area, and has put a lot of time and effort into achieving the degree.

Please join us in congratulating Alliance Taekwondo’s Master Devon Waldron on achieving his Hapkido Master degree 4th Dan!  필승
