Hwa Rang Do® Demo by Grandmaster Taejoon Lee - 7th WMAE 2006

In order to better understand what something is today, we must understand it's roots, it's foundation. And, in so doing, we create greater meaning and purpose in the actions we take today. Thus, by acting purposefully, mindfully today, we sow and preserve our essence, our value, our truth.

In this video Grandmaster Taejoon Lee demonstrates some Hwa Rang Do Self Defense Techniques at the 7th World Martial Arts Expo 2006, Carson, CA.

We hope you enjoy these series of videos as we share our past with you with hopes of better understanding.

...Today:

Grandmaster Taejoon Lee, the eldest son of the Founder of Hwa Rang Do® (The Way of the Flowering Knights) Dr. Joo Bang Lee and Hwa Rang Do's heir, offers free lessons and historical footages into the world in the hopes that it may add more clarity and better understanding of the martial arts and Hwa Rang Do®.

He does not strive to make better martial artists, but rather better human beings. Hence, this is a path to Knighthood - to serve, protect and honor humanity.

Hwa Rang Do®:
A Legacy of Loyalty
Relentlessly Seeking Truth
Empowering Lives
Serving Humanity

His mission is to empower the world one person at a time through the strict discipline of Hwa Rang Do training, which epitomizes the ideal to maximize the human potential. Being an Umyangian as he defines himself, he believes in the existence of dialectic opposing forces in all things and the truth lies in harmony, cooperation, and ascension to collectively enhance our consciousness, elevating humanity into the next step of our human evolution - Not survival of the fittest, but survival through cooperation.

His belief is summarized in his quote, The key to the universe lies dormant within the self, waiting to awaken through self-discovery!

His aim is to reach as many people as possible to help them overcome the struggles of life by taking control of their lives through cultivating the self: physically, mentally, emotionally and ultimately spiritually, so that one may break free from the most destructive force that enslaves us, FEAR! So that, ultimately we can truly respect and honor God.

Hwa Rang Do Hoshinsul Joint Manipulation Vol.1, 2 & 3. GM Taejoon Lee

In these Instructional Video series, Grandmaster Taejoon Lee introduces for the first time in history the Tae Soo Do® (Undergraduate Prerequisite Program) Hoshinsul (Self Defense Joint Manipulation Techniques) found in the Intermediate and Advanced levels as an introduction to the vast curriculum of joint manipulation techniques found in Hwa Rang Do®.
One of the many components within its Four Divisions of study, Wae Gong (External Power), the physical curriculum is what is commonly known as Joint Manipulation. Utilizing the joints of the human anatomy with proper application of angles and force to control an opponent through pain/pressure compliance. Although a person may easily enlarge and strengthen their musculature, the ligaments and tendons connecting the bones and muscle to bones are difficult to strengthen. Hence, joint manipulation when properly applied can be highly effective with minimal strength and effort.
It is also one of the best ways to control and deter and aggressor without inflicting severe damage.

Wha Rang (Step-By-Step)

Wha Rang, a traditional Tae Kwon Do pattern, performed by sixth degree dan Master Joshua Hong at Eternal Martial Arts School (

HWA-RANG Traditional Oh Do Kwan Hyung of Taekwondo

Hwa-Rang - is named after the Hwa-Rang youth group which originated in the Silla Dynasty about 1350 years ago. This group eventually became the actual driving force for the unification of the three kingdoms of Korea. The 29 movements refer to the 29th Infantry Division where Taekwon-do developed into maturity; 29 movements - 3 kihaps - begins and ends in Chun-bi Sogi Position C

TAEKWON-DO - In Korean, tae (태) means foot; kwon (권) means fist; and do (도) means way or method. Therefore, taekwondo can be translated as the way or method of destroying with the hands and feet. The name taekwondo is also written as taekwon-do, tae kwon-do, or tae kwon do by various organizations.

BELT - In most Okinawan, Japanese, and Korean martial arts practitioners wear a long colored cloth belt around their waist. They are generally long enough to be wrapped twice around the wearer's waist and then tied in a square knot, with 10 to 15 inches hanging from either side of the knot. Before the 20th century most belts were colorless, but since students were prohibited from washing their belts, belts grew steadily darker through the years of accumulated sweat and soil. When the color belt system of rank was incorporated, it was arranged so that the belt color became darker as the student advanced in rank, ending with the black belt, the highest level of proficiency. Belts vary according to style and type of martial art; in some schools there is only a small color tip on the end of the bet to show rank. The most common colors used in martial arts are white, yellow, orange, blue, green, purple, brown, red, and black.

BLACK BELT - Color of belt worn in Japanese, Okinawan, and Korean martial arts. Its wearer is generally recognized as an expert. In most styles there are 10 degrees of black belt, called Dan (rank; degree), in which the latter five are honorary. In some styles, the recognized master, a 10th degree black belt, will at his option wear a red belt.

DAN - Category of rank in the Japanese, Okinawan, and Korean martial arts that classifies students, instructors, and masters who wear the black belt.

DEGREE - Black belt rank given in a martial art to one who has completed a prescribed course of study. Though no such ranks were issued originally in the Chinese styles, other than master and student, many American kung-fu instructors have adopted a system similar to that used in karate and other arts.

KATA COMPETITION -- Multi-divisional martial arts competition; participants perform individual chosen kata, which are judged usually by five officials under a point system. Judging of kata is generally based on poise, balance, stance, and precise control of movement. Eye movement must parallel body moves, attention must not stray, and power is a prerequisite. Judges deduct points for faults, awarding marks between one and ten.

THE concept for martial ballet forms was first derived in the mid to late seventies. Tournament forms competition was in an embryonic stage, and most tournament competitors performed the patterns that were associated with their rank. Though these rank forms displayed true aesthetic essence, (when performed properly), they lacked the flash and dramatics that had been displayed via television and movie media.

IT was soon realized that there was a need for patterns that would give tournament competitors a greater challenge, and lend color and excitement to their performance. To accommodate this need, Grandmaster Jhoon Rhee along with a variety of masters and instructors developed the martial ballet patterns.

ORIGINALLY set to music, these forms enhanced and embellished contemporary movements and technique.

Although times are hard right now, we can’t afford to become lazy. We must stay strong and continue to improve ourselves so we can be the people who shine in these dark times. Use the extra time you have for reflection, meditation, completing unfinished tasks, and setting new goals to achieve.

Remember Do Joo Nim’s saying: “A sharp blade dulls quickly. A dull blade is useless. Sharpening the blade is a warrior’s life”. Now is the time to sharpen your blade!

Hwarang forever and God Bless!

The Beauty of HWA RANG DO

A sample of the beauty of the Hwa Rang Do forms, done by the seaside.

Cyberdojang: Yongtoogi - Intro to Hwa Rang Do®'s Unique Standup Fighting System

This past August/September, on the cover of Black Belt Magazine and featured article, Hwa Rang Do®’s Grandmaster Taejoon Lee spoke publicly for the first time about it’s unique 2-day martial arts decathlon, which is their World Championships!



For the past 50 years, no martial arts venue, tournament or sport has been able to capture the full breath of what was possible with a martial arts curriculum consisting of over 4,000 techniques. So over the past 20 years, Hwa Rang Do®, sought out to create its own!

Since 2010, Hwa Rang Do®’s World Championships has consisted of 10 separate tournaments in the categories of forms, weapon forms, point fighting, grappling and various categories in sword fighting and stick fighting.

Each year, the champion was crowned based on their overall performance in ALL tournament categories, not only testing their skill, but their endurance and spirit as well.

The final piece to this already grueling 2-days of competition was added this past year, with the advent of a NEW Fighting Sport, Yongtoogi, which consist of submission fighting rules designed to condition fighters to master Hwa Rang Do’s self-defense formula of defend, takedown and quick submit.

Emphasis being on the “quick submit” part, as fighters only have 5 seconds to execute a submission, after a takedown is completed, before they are stood up and continue the match on their feet.

For the first time, we are excited to share with you the HIGHLIGHTS from this past summer’s seminar on Yongtoogi!
