Kyuki-do

Kyuki-Do is a martial art that combines the strikes of TaeKwon-Do, the throwing and grappling techniques of Judo and Juijitsu, the joint locks of Hapkido, and the practice of Kobudo (traditional weapons) into one system. It could be described as mixed martial arts (MMA) in a traditional dojo setting.

Classes focus on helping students learn to defend themselves using practical, proven techniques.

The concept of Kyuki-Do was first introduced to the United States by Grand Master Ok Hyung Kim in 1967. Kyuki-Do synthesizes the techniques of Tae Kwon Do, Judo, and Hapki Do. These three arts represent the core or foundation of Kyuki-Do. They are, however, not the only Martial Arts included in the Art of Kyuki-Do. Much like Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kun Do, Kyuki-Do is constantly evolving, new techniques are added from different systems such as karate, kickboxing, boxing, wrestling and other styles. Occasionally, old techniques are discarded.
