What is Hankido?

Hankido has 3 forms of movement:

  • Moo-ye, artistic dance form
  • Ho-shin-sool, self defence form
  • Ho-heob-bup, static form incorporating abdominal breathing exercise and ki energy management.

Moo-ye

A Hankido practitioner must first study Moo-ye. Moo-ye incorporates gentle movements which develop grace and balance, the preliminaries for studying Ho-shin-sool.

Ho-shin-sool

Converts Moo-ye [dance forms] into devastating self-defence. This can be by controlling an opponent by harmonizing with their energy, and using that energy to perform powerful throws and joint locks.

Ho-heob-bup

Finalises Hankido by developing the correct breathing techniques to Moo-ye and Ho-shin-sool.
