    The Korean art meaning ‘the revolving martial art’.

    Utilizing circular and revolving movements to generate power. Legend has it that the art was developed from the Dol Gae Soolwhich was originated by King Tae Jo during the Koryo dynasty of Korea 994-1392 A.D. It is said that he was inspired by the force found circular motions, commonly observed in nature, and that the inspiration behind its development and popularisation was so that the people could defend themselves against invading forces.
    The tenets of the system are reflected in its symbol which contains three colours, white, blue and red, representing three photometer. Oddly, red is representative of the sky or the heavens, blue the earth and white the neutral colour that separates the other two colours is said to represent human beings. The combination of these three aspects, it is thought, develops Ki, known as Chi in Chinese. The triad of heaven, earth and man is also a popular subject amongst practitioners of Chinese arts.

    Training of weapons is also encouraged alongside traditional weapons, weapons of opportunity are utilised such as the use of sharp nails and the belt. Traditional weapons include the long sword and medium sword and short sword along with the corresponding staff in short length, medium length and long length, the fan and the cane are also taught.

    Nae Ki, internal strength training is an important part of the curriculum and focuses on the breathing exercises attributed to giving the practitioner strong, internal Chi, or Ki, which helps practitioners able to withstand blows during fighting. Self defence, throwing techniques and chokes alongside striking techniques from the hands and kicking from the feel are utilised in order to master the art.

    Students are encouraged to practice on a daily basis and the art is also noted for its large female practitioner base. It is said that some of the techniques have been developed specifically with women in mind. It includes a mind boggling 3001 self defence techniques, 70 basic motions, 3,200 kicking techniques, 14 types of high kick and 28 special kicks and 7 types of low kicks.
    The stick form uses 577 techniques for the long stick and 409 for the short stick.
    Sword training includes 390 systemised techniques through 41 basic motions. It is said to develop the brain through the stimulation of joints and pulse. However, the simple fact that practitioners memorise such a wide range of complex manoevours would clearly enhance and improve to a great degree of overall brain function, memory and spatial awareness.
