We are a traditional school, which maintains the classic values of Eastern thought. Hwa Rang Do® which means “The Way of the Flowering Knights” was founded by Dr. Joo Bang Lee in 1960, Seoul, Korea. It is based on the philosophy and spirit of the Hwarang Knights, 1800 years ago, who unified Korea for the first time in its history.
The Martial Art of Hwa Rang Do® emphasizes the balance of mind, body, heart, and spirit to maximize the human potential so that one can live in harmony with others and nature. It is one of the best ways to instill self-confidence so that one can overcome any challenges and live life to its fullest.
