    youn wha ryu

    GM Han did not invent the story. It was told to him by one of his instructors. Again - it's a story. It's kind of like the bed time stories parents tell their kids. Anyway - talking about this is beating a dead horse. I don't repeat this story to my students but maybe once and I tell them...

    I do understand - Remember that word, written or spoke, correct or incorrect, has collapsed nations and built empires. I just get heated up with incorrect information is passed from non-reliable people that have nothing to do with the subject. And yet many people will listen to that one...

    youn wha ryu

    Which story of origin are you talking about? GM Han or of Youn Wha? If it's about Youn Wha - yeah it's a story, a legend, no one said it was a real event. Again don't be too literal in your reading. But again any Joe Blow can talk smack about a martial art and never step inside a school. I...

    I am a Youn Wha instructor that has trained in capoeira and USTF before training in Youn Wha. You need to not take everything you read so literal people. Go to a class - try it out - and then form your opinion - plain and simple. Again just to recap some false truths here: 1) We do NOT...

    TKD lineage again (KTA)

    Not really - I am trying to get his BIO straight for informational purposes online more than anything. It's not like I am trying to catch anyone in a lie.

    TKD lineage again (KTA)

    Forgive me if I asked this question before but I have now found copies of my Grandmaster's certificates - some of them at least. I need to know what you guys think of what I have found. Anyone hear of Dae-Han Hwarang-Do Swordsmanship Association GM Han received a "holder of 7th as result of...

    Can you name this form in this video?

    Ok - let me lighten up a thing or two. I like to cover my bases when it comes to what I have been told. I like to ask around and get many idea's and views instead of believing just one source. As to our system: I love it and the people I train with. To me being a martial arts fan since...

    Can you name this form in this video?

    We do that form as well...unless their is more than one form of Bassai. The thing I am wondering is that it blocking - in parts - are circular. The beginning for example is using a swinging close handed fan block downwards - more or less.

    Can you name this form in this video?

    The form is called Youn Wha - and that's me doing it. I was just wondering what roots/origins it may have. I don't think it's Korean.
