This website was made to promote the World Hankimuye Federation (WHF) and the Sangmukwan International H.K.D. Training Center. We offer the opportunity to train martial arts in Korea. Korea is the home of world famous martial arts like Taekwondo, Hapkido, Ssireum, Taekgyeon and of course Hankido.
The WHF and Sangmukwan were founded by master Ko Baek-yong. Master Ko Baek-yong was a student of Myung Jae-nam kuksanim, the founder of Hankido and Hankumdo. After his instructor passed away master Ko decided to open his school to martial art enthusiasts from all over the world to pass on the heritage of his teacher.
The World Hankimuye Federation has schools in different country. The federation is officially registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK) under number 75226383.
Most Korean words on this website are romanized using the Revised Romanization of Korean except there where we feel people would be more comfortable with an alternative romanization. Korean names are always written with the family name first. We place a hyphen between the two syllables that usually make up the given name.
