    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...

    youn wha ryu

    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...

    youn wha ryu

    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...

    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.

    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?

    Ok guys - just an FYI that's me doing the form at my testing this weekend. To us - the form is called Youn Wha - its our first Youn Wha form (taught at 2nd Dan). Since it has a lot of circular blocking and double blocking/punching I didn't know the origins of this form. I will post this in...

    TKD history - trying to find lineage

    He is still alive - but I have been told that korean's are private in nature and that if I just started asking him questions he may take it as I doubt him and think he is lying. The master's in Dallas will be formally taking him out to eat and interviewing him sometime in the future. I am...

    TKD history - trying to find lineage

    Boricua - I would wait to ask questions on the Youn Wha web site. I don't want to stir up things for everyone in our association right now - we are trying to keep things behind the scenes until we figure everything out and ask GMH. I don't want everyone going up to GMH and asking...

    TKD history - trying to find lineage

    I also have a timeline and theoretical lineage of GMH. The master's in Dallas are using my information along with their's and will be asking GMH directly once they get everything organized.
