Temple-Kwan-Do dates to 649 B.C. to the Bulkyo Mu Sol (Buddhist Martial Arts Monks) located in a temple in the harsh mountain terrain of Korea. At that time all the Buddhist Martial Arts Monks Writings were in Chinese Deogram characters, that were used before King Sejong developed the Korean alphabet.
Temple-Kwan-Do encompasses aspects of only the most elite martial arts extreme control and take-out movements known TODAY.
It was and is today the most comprehensive and systematic study of the most elite contemporary martial arts taught in the world TODAY.
Temple-Kwan-Do was first exposed when used by the Elite Royal Court Guards and taught to only the elite top echelon aristocrats that exemplified the fine traits of honor, integrity, and pride for ones self, family (Kwan), and country. Other than the above mentioned, only a select handful of martial artists in the entire world outside the temple have been enlightened to have the elite secretive art passed on to them only after proving oneself worthy.
Temple-Kwan-Do does not mirror any other main stream martial art system. Temple-Kwan-Do works out of steel techniques created by the monks from the temple that proved so devastating from its steel strike attack techniques, to its steel kicking techniques, to its steel extreme control and take-out techniques, that it rendered other martial arts practitioners helpless!
Temple-Kwan-Do’s systems are highly extensive, complete and practical for anyone regardless of strength, size, age or gender. Temple-Kwan-Do’s Personal Protection system, also works off of meridians in one’s body that are also used for healing. Such as Acupuncture, Acupressure, and Shiatsu, etc.
First and Foremost we stress developing each practitioner as a complete, healthy and whole person through our well-rounded program. Positive basic human values are stressed. From physical standpoint, our systems are the most highly effective and developed martial arts systems in the world today.
Because the results would be devastating, we would not compete in sport tournament competitions. We chose to stress the martial arts rather than the martial sport side in our teachings.
In Temple-Kwan-Do a practitioner is taught to control and take-out single and multiple attackers from all ranges and angles of combat.
This temple art training of extreme control and take-out includes kicking, close quarter strikes, sweeps, meridian pressure point attacks, various joint manipulations, locks, jujitsu, grappling from both standing and ground positions, various maiming techniques, artery shut down and knock-out techniques, various nervous system take-out techniques, along with numerous choke-outs, and various weapons.
