and vision

Teaching quality

The World Hankimuye Federation promotes martial arts training according to the universal principles of circle, flow and harmony.


We preserve the style as it was taught to us by master Ko Baek-yong. Preservation in our view is not about static conservation, but about dynamic application.

What moves us

We do this because we want to share the positive effects that martial arts training can have on people. Training together enhances these positives effects.

High standards

Our organization teaches hankimuye. Hankimuye is coherent approach to hankido, hapkido and hankumdo. We achieve our goals by setting high standards for ourself and our members.

Making a Positive Impact

We strive to make high quality martial arts instruction available to a wider audience. We do this with a modern martial arts program that has proven itself. Our curriculum is traditional but not conservative.
