Han Mu Do was created by Dr. He-Young Kimm in 1989, after more than forty years of training and research in Korean martial art systems. A true martial arts scholar, he sought to integrate the techniques and philosophies of these styles, most founded in the 1950’s, with new and innovative techniques into a single comprehensive balanced system.

Han Mu Do is recognized and registered by the Korean government (reg. no. 534) as a traditional Korean Martial Art.

Han means Korea (nation of optimism), Mu means Martial Arts and Do means “The Way.” Together, Han Mu Do means as “The Way of Korean Martial Arts.”
