The history of Korean Martial Arts is as old as the land itself and can be traced as far

back as the prehistoric era, where primitive weapons made of wood and stone were

used for hunting and fighting. As early as 2707 BC, the Korean warlord Chi-Woo, also

known as Jaoji, reigned as the “god of war” in what is now Mainland China.

Since then, the majority of Koreans migrated and settled in the region of the Korean

Peninsula, where there have been more than a thousand recorded instances of foreign

invasions. Consequently, the Korean people developed unique martial arts and military

strategies in order to defend themselves and their territory. Most of these Korean

martial arts fall into three main groups or branches, namely Tribal, Buddhist, and Royal

Court Martial Arts.
