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.
Hwa Rang Do® has extensive joint manipulation techniques for all forms of attacks (empty hand and with weapon), grabs, and holds to control, submit, takedown, and finish the assailant for self-defense, law-enforcement, and military applications.

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!
