Kang Duk Won ("The house of generous teaching") was one of the original martial arts schools (kwans) that opened Korea after the end of the Japanese occupation of Korea at the end of World War II. This Kwan was founded in the late 1950s by two former students of the YMCA Kwon Bop Bu (Chang Moo Kwan), Jong Pyo Hong and Chul Hee Park.

Today, Kang Duk Won still exists in Korea and is officially known as Taekwondo Kang Duk Won, which is a social friendship club that endorses the Kukkiwon system and supports the World Taekwondo Federation. Kang Duk Won also has a school in the United States (http://www.americankangdukwon.org) that teaches a hybrid of WTF-style taekwondo and Shotokan Karate.
