  • Korean Martial Arts

Korean Martial Arts has a long and storied history stretching all the way back to antiquity. Born out of necessity, these martial arts were used to defend and protect communities against invading forces. Although the exact origins are unknown, there is evidence that it has been practiced for thousands of years and passed down from generation to generation.

Over time, a variety of distinct and diverse martial arts styles have emerged from Korea, each one unique and distinct from the others. Some of the most popular styles include Taekwondo, Hapkido, Tang Sool, Kumdo, and Kuk Sool Won. All of these martial arts styles share common traits such as an emphasis on quick and precise movements as well as a strong sense of discipline.

Korean Martial Arts has long been a part of the Korean people's culture, seen as a way to stay healthy, reduce stress, and improve self-defense skills. In more recent times, these martial arts have evolved, with some modern practitioners adding modern elements such as sparring to their martial arts practice. Regardless, the core values of Korean Martial Arts remain – discipline, respect, and honor.
