What is Chung Do Mu Sool Won?


The World Chung Do Mu Sool Won Association ® is a comprehensive and purely distinctive Traditional Korean Royal Court Martial Fine Arts ® style and nonprofit organization that is providing the best method of training and certification for its students and instructors. Hap Ki Do is a modern art where as Chung Do Mu Sool Won is a much older traditional Korean art. One of Chung Do Mu Sool Won's greatest difference from the modern art of Hap Ki Do is in Chung Do Mu Sool Won's emphasis on preserving the practice of traditional classical Korean weapon skills and forms, the original Korean Royal Martial Fine Arts forms, specialized training skills, and the practice of Taek Kyon (the original Korean kicking art) and Kwon Bop ("Fighting Arts" or "Fist Arts"). Chung Do Mu Sool Won skills are wide in range and include some 4000 self defense techniques (the vast majority of which are joint locking and pressure point throws), as well as Ki-Gong (Internal Energy Training), and the arts of Ji-Ap-Sool (Accupressure) and Chim-Sool (Acupuncture, etc.).

It has been this fully integrated training method that has allowed Chung Do Mu Sool Won to remain as the most complete traditional Korean martial arts system.

The original form of traditional martial arts utilized by the Korean Royal Army, the Korean Royal Palace Guards, the Korean Royal Body Guards, and many members of the Korean nobility, was known as "Chung Do Mu Sool Won" (True Way Martial Arts or Skills). Chung Do Mu Sool was not a singular style of martial arts as seen in the vast majority of contemporary martial arts. Chung Do Mu Sool was a collection of several martial skills and methods and was the ancient Korean military training system that integrated the most efficient and effective weapon skills and forms with the best empty hand fighting techniques that had been developed in Korea. These skills and forms have been handed down from master to student and father to son for over two thousand years. Chung Do Mu Sool Won is currently under the direction of Grandmaster Hwang In-Mo (Association Chairman and Chancellor).
