Notes on the Historical Development of Korean Martial Sports - An Addendum to Youngs History and Development of Tae Kyon

By Willy Pieter, Ph.D.




Notes on the Historical Development of Korean Martial Sports - An Addendum to Youngs History and Development of Tae Kyon

Pieter expands upon the historical development of Korean martial sports as presented by Young in a previous journal article about Tae kyon (v2n2). There is an emphasis on the hwarang (“flower boy”) and their presence in Korean culture and martial traditions in particular. The etymology of Korean martial systems are questioned.
