About Mu Sool Won

The traditional Korean martial of Mu Sool Won is a systematic study of all of the traditional fighting arts, which together comprise martial arts history of the Korean nation. As such Mu Sool Won is an extremely well-organized system of martial arts which seeks to integrate and explore all aspects of the traditional Korean martial arts.

As a martial arts system, Mu Sool Won covers the entire spectrum of the traditional Asian fighting arts and techniques of body conditioning, as well as mental development and traditional weapons training. These include (but are not limited to):

As you can see, Mu Sool Won covers an extensive variety of techniques and martial art methods, but it is not merely concerned with the physical methods of attack and defense: Mu Sool Won includes the study of healing techniques, the development of internal power, and physical conditioning. Training in Mu Sool Won also helps to instill self-confidence and self-discipline, a calm self-assurance, and the psychological and spiritual values, which are traditionally associated with the martial character. Mental and physical well-being are of primary importance in Mu Sool Won.

Although Mu Sool Won as it is practiced today is relatively new, its roots stretch far and deep to the very beginnings of the history of Korean people. As students of Mu Sool Won, this early history and the ancient traditions upon which our art is founded should be as important to us as the physical techniques themselves, for it is only from our understanding and appreciation of these classical roots that we are able to grow as students and as martial artists.
