What is a Dojang 도장?

A “dojang” 도장 (aka Korean Seal) is an official signature stamp made of wood or stone . It is Korea's way of signing their names on official documents. If someone were to steal your dojang, it's equivalent to someone stealing your identity.

The dojang must be officially registered to be considered legal. Those that are not can make great souvenirs. Here are some cute ones made just for kids!
