Kang Duk Won Korean Karate Research Engineer


I remember a class mate of mine named John. He worked over at Ames Research center as a research engineer. Imagine that, a geek, sweating and punching his all for the knowledge of the Kang Duk Won.
One day he showed up at class all glum. “There going to fire me,” he said. The college I got my degree from said I hadn’t really gotten my doctorate. I owe them one thesis.
It was one of those bureaucratic snafus. Nobody was at fault, but John was going to lose his job, stop his Kang Duk Won studies, and have to travel back to the east coast to do one lousy thesis.
The next day he came in all happy. “My boss said it was stupid. He declassified some of my work and told me to send it in as a thesis!”
The upshot of it was this, and we of the Kang Duk Won knew it to be true: he didn’t want to stop studying the Kang Duk Won, and he moved the universe to fulfill his dreams.
Those were the kind of people I studied with at the Kang Duk Won.
