Taekwondo, “the way of foot and fist,” is based on ancient Korean methods of self-defense. It emphasizes flexibility and kicking techniques, but hand techniques are also widely employed. A means of self-defense, physical conditioning, recreation, and mental discipline, Taekwondo is recognized not only as a superior martial art, but also as an exciting sport with powerful kicks and punches that emphasizes continuous action, endurance, skill, and sportsmanship. Taekwondo has been a medal event since the 2000 Olympics.
Judo, “the way of gentleness,” is a modern sport based on Jujitsu, the ancient Japanese art of self-defense. Judo consists of standing throws and complex grappling techniques, used both offensively and defensively, as well as falling techniques for safety. It is a vigorous competitive sport that requires both physical and mental endurance. Judo is practiced by people of all ages and has been in the Olympic games since 1964.
Yongmudo techniques are modern, open, and dynamic, combining the martial arts of Taekwondo, Judo, Tsirum, Kumdo, and others to develop a futuristic way of self-defense through physical, psychological, spiritual, and mental training with up- to-date scientific knowledge.
