    Korean instructors I know use 뒤로돌아 for turn around.

    Is that "Dwi-ro Do-ra" or "Do-ra"? I've heard both.

    The former for an about-face 180 degree turn.

    4 characters = 4 syllables.
    First one is turn back, and second is just turn.

    We definitely used 뒤로돌아 in Korea, and I use it in my dojang in the US, too.

    I was looking at the web site of a local Tang Soo Do school and saw a picture of their logo. It said 담무수. What does that mean?

    Are you sure you read correctly? All I get from a search is of a Babylonian god lol.

    That says 당수 and 무. Dang Soo and Mu. Mu as in Mudo.

    If you look closely the Hangul is stylised and the ㅇ has rounded corners.

    So, we have a confusing font, symbols out of order, and an incomplete word. Bonus points for the probable trademark violation with the fist and wreath.

    My question now is: What does Mudo mean? Also, is it common practice to shorten it to "Mu"?

    In what context? Do you have the Hangul?

    I suspect the Hanja
    靑濤館
    Would apply.

    Qingdao

    Or Hangul

    청도

    Meaning "Blue Way" / "Blue Flow"

    As in Cheong Do Kwan

    청도관 "Blue Wave School"

    I suspect Joong Do Ryu is a variant like

    청도류

    Which would be something like "Blue Wave Way"

    Unless the "Ryu" is adopted from Japanese "Ryu" meaning School or Chapter. Which would again mean Blue Wave School.

    It might also be

    중도

    中道

    "middle way"

    중도류

    "middle way wave/flow"

    "the way of moderate flow"
