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.


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.


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.


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