Traditional Korean Martial Arts

By Stanley E. Henning, M.A.

Traditional Korean Martial Arts

From the beginning, Korean martial arts were intertwined with those of China. Even the historical references to Korean martial arts are all in Chinese. The author concludes that traditional Korean martial arts are but a vague memory and taekwondo a symbol born in the cradle of modem Korean nationalism.
