PERSONAL TITLES

 

Some people may be led to believe that the term "KwanJangNim" means grandmaster. In some martial arts circles today this title is used with such reverence as to keep us in awe of the great and almighty "KwanJangNim".

 

If you take a close look at the Korean language you’ll find the following information to be true:

 

Kwan is actually a suffix of the term “chae yook kwan” a common term in Korea used now days for "dojang".

 

Chae yook means fitness athletic training, physical education, or Chae yook kwan means fitness or athletic center.

 

Kwan is also the suffix of "toh suh kwan" meaning library, "pang muhl kwan" meaning museum, or "mee sul kwan" meaning fine art museum.

 

Jang means director with nim as a common respectful suffix. Therefore, kwan jang can be the title for the director of a library, a museum, an art center, as well as the owner of a martial art school (with "nim" added for appropriate referral of respect).

 

The idea that "kwanjang-nim" means master or grandmaster most likely comes from a common standard among martial artists in Korea. That standard is to own a martial arts school one must be a 4th Dan black belt and is then called a "kwanjang-nim". The assumption is that kwanjang-nim means master, when it truly means the owner/director of a martial arts school commonly referred to as a chae yook kwans (fitness center).

 

Without owning a martial arts school, a 4th Dan and above would be referred to as a "sabom-nim". This is a title given to someone who is a qualified instructor of a particular subject of study that is usually sports related.

 

Sonseang-nim:

teacher

  • general term for teacher of any subject
  • respectful form of the word “you”

Sabom-nim:

martial arts instructor (in Korea 4th Dan and above)

  • In the USA a black belt of any level may teach martial arts. Therefore, the title "Sabom-nim" is sometimes used by native Koreans to refer to the martial arts instructor

Kwan jang-nim:

owner of a martial arts school

  • kwan - derived from the term Chae yook "kwan" (literally: fitness center)
  • jang - a suffix term meaning head, chief, or director of
  • nim - a respectful suffix added to a person’s title
  • The term "kwnajangnim" does not literally mean master. In the past only 4th Dan or above could own a martial arts school in Korea. Therefore this term is sometimes used in the USA to refer to "master"
  • In the USA a black belt of any level may own/operate a martial art school. Therefore, the title "KwanJangNim" is often used by native Koreans to refer to the school owner.

Chong kwan jang:

Means the head or chief Kwan jang.

Hae jang-nim:

president or head of an association

  • Hae refers to association
  • jang - a suffix term meaning head, chief, or director of

Suseung-nim:

This is the actual Korean term for a student's master. This term is used only on a student to instructor level. It refers not to the ownership of a martial arts school, but to the student / instructor relationship.

Hakseang:

student

Taekwondo-in:

Taekwondo(ist) practitioner of TKD

Hapkido-in:

Hapkido(ist) practitioner of HKD

Yudanja-nim:

black belt holder
