Taekwon-Do, Taekwondo, Tae Kwon Do, TaeKwon Do, A study of Words

Lots and lots of things have been said about “what is Taekwon-Do” and how to “spell Taekwon-Do”, Taekwondo, taekwondo, Taekwon do, Tae Kwon Do, TaeKwonDo etc.  Of course, going strictly by the way it is written in Taekwon-Do’s country of origin, well, it is just 태권도.  It has no space, no capitals and no hyphens.  Of course, the same is true when we look at the Hanja (Chinese/Japanese) way to write Taekwon-Do 跆拳道.

So, why do we have so many ways of writing this rather simple three syllable word?  Well, we could start with the etymology of this word.  Taekwon-Do is not a native Korean term!  It is a word of Chinese origin that has as many words in many tongues almost exclusively adopted by Korea.  The word also has or parts of the word also have strong Japanese ties.  As most know, Korea was a nation state of the Japanese Empire for some time.  So it isn’t unreasonable to see that terms of Japanese origin would sneak into the Korean vocabulary.  But before we head into the etymology of Taekwon-Do, let’s see what other authors, masters, grandmasters of Taekwon-Do say….

As to why the I.T.F. and the Kido Kwan uses the spelling of  “Taekwon-Do” well, simple put, General Choi when as personally by me, said the spelling in English should be “Taekwon-Do” with the emphasis on the – as “Taekwon” is the art, and greeting, and “Do” is the philosophy.

Choi, Hong-hi stated in his book TAEKWON-DO THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE copyright: 1965 that “Translated from Korean, “Tae” (t’ae) literally means to jump or kick or smash with the foot.  “Kwon” denotes a fist-chiefly to punch or destroy with the hand or fist.  “Do” means an art, or way or method.  Thus taken collectively “Taekwon-Do” indicates the punches, flying kicks, blocks, dodges and interceptions with the hands, arms and feet to the rapid destruction of the opponent (Choi 14).

In the fourth edition of Choi, Hong-hi’s book TAEKWON-DO (The Korean Art of Self-Defence) copyright: 1995 and more commonly referred to as the “condensed encyclopedia” he states: “Translated literally “Tae” stands for jumping of flying, to kick with the foot. “Kwon” denotes the fist-chiefly to punch or destroy with the hand or fist.  “Do” means an art or way-the right way built and paved by the saints and sages in the past.  Thus taken collectively “Taekwon-Do” indicates the mental training and the techniques of unarmed combat for self-defence as well as health, involving the skilled application of punches, kicks, blocks and dodges with bare hands and feet to the rapid destructions of the moving opponent or opponents” (Choi 15).

Cho, Shi-hak also known as Henry Cho in his 1968 book KOREAN KARATE Free Fighting Techniques states that “Tae-kwon is the Korean word for karate recently adopted by the Korean Tae-Kwon do Federation. Tae-kwon do (tae meaning foot; kwon, fist; and do, martial art) is identical to Japanese karate, and the title is a literal description of an art consisting of foot and hand techniques.” (Cho 21)

Chun, Rhin-moon also known as Richard Chun in his 1976 book TAE KWON DO The Korean Martial Art stated that “Tae Kwon Do, “The Art of Kicking and Punching,” incorporates the abrupt, linear movements of Karate and the flowing, circular patterns of Kung Fu with its own incomparable kicking techniques to form an integrated system unique to Korea. (Chun 7, 8)

Son, Duk-sun & Robert Clark in their book KOREAN KARATE THE ART OF TAE KWON DO copyright 1968 says “Tae Kwon Do is a Korean martial art.”  And “Tae Kwon Do is essentially discipline: discipline of the mind, the body, and the spirit.” (Son 1, 5)

Jimmy M.S. Too in his book THE TECHNIQUES OF TAEKWON-DO A Modern International Martial Art simply states “Taekwon-do is an effective and superior form of martial art.  It employs hand and foot techniques for self defense.” (Too 28)

B.S. Huan in his book TAEKWON-DO says “TaeKwon-Do is the Korean martial art that was perfected by the Korean TaeKwon-Do movement in 1955 to supersede ancient Korean fighting arts.  And “Tae” means to jump or kick or smash with the feet” “Kwon means to block, punch, and strike with the hand or fist. And “Do” means “An art”. (Huan 17)

Clearly, we also have different ways of defining exactly what Taekwon-Do is as well.

Cherokee Nation Loses its first Martial Arts Grandmaster

An instructor of one of the Kido Kwan Directors has sadley passed…

7534_peo_130813_Vann-LBY STAFF REPORTORS of the CHEROKEE PHOENIX

WICHITA, Kan. – Wilson Vann, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and master instructor of martial arts, died on Aug. 8 at age 89.

Black-Belt-Testing-20110807a

Grandmaster In Hui Won, Grandmaster Wilson Vann, Grandmaster Kyo Yoon Lee

Born on June 11, 1924, in Short, Okla., he eventually joined the U.S. Navy and served in the Pacific theater during World War II. After the war, he worked 36 years at Cessna Aircraft in Wichita before retiring and moving to Tahlequah, Okla., where he resided until 2011.

He owned Judo and Tae Kwon Do schools for more than 50 years, which produced many champions in national and international competition. He had a reputation as a noted instructor of martial arts in the U.S. and Korea, specializing in Tae Kwon Do and Kodokan Judo. He held a black belt in Judo and a ninth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do from the Han Moo Kwan. Han Moo Kwan was founded in August 1954 by Kyo Yoon Lee and is one of the nine original Kwans that later formed Kukkiwon Tae Kwon Do.

Vann is survived by his wife Loretta (Riner) of 65 years, three children, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

According to a Cherokee Nation email, “Vann was a proud Cherokee and a WWII veteran. For many years he taught young men and women Tae Kwon Do. Using martial arts as a platform, he also taught them much of what they needed to succeed in life. That teaching included working hard, being honest, never giving up. His students learned courage and commitment. He left us hundreds of heroes in waiting. They will support their families, help their friends, maintain a sense of honor; and, God willing, live a peaceful life. But when courage is needed, they will have it. And in great part, it will be due to the quiet, unassuming mentoring of a great man.”

GM Wilson Vann

Funeral and graveside services were expected be held on Aug. 14 at the Old Mission Cemetery and Funeral Home in Wichita. Memorials in Vann’s memory may be made to the American Cancer Society. Thoughts and memories may be shared in the online guestbook at oldmissionmortuary.com.

Kukkiwon Has new President 국기원은 새로운 대통령을 가지고

 Master Lee Kyu-hyung, a taekwondo professor of Keimyung University, performs a poomsae demonstration for the WTF’s promotional film at the Midong Elementary School in Seoul, Korea, on July 12, 2008.

Master Lee Kyu-hyung, a taekwondo professor of Keimyung University, performs a poomsae demonstration for the WTF’s promotional film at the Midong Elementary School in Seoul, Korea, on July 12, 2008.

Master Lee Kyu Hyung (Kyemyeng University – 9th Dan) is the new President of Kukkiwon after being provisionally named yesterday by the Director of the organization’s board, Mr Hong. Master Lee Kyu Hyung will immediately start working for Kukkiwon, as he’s decided to make today his first day as the Chair-in-Office.

Mr Hong did also name some more positions within the organization yesterday: Oh Hyuen Deuk will be the Administrative Deputy Director, while No Sun Myeng was supposed to be the Director of Education, a position which he finally refused to take. Master Lee and Mr Oh have already started to actively work for the development of Kukkiwon.pp_1369_5_1263182025

Master Lee replaces Mr Kim Chung Gun, who was acting as the Chair-in-Office during Hong’s trip to USA. We will now await the official appointment of Master Lee, which is expected to happen in the coming days if there’s no public reaction against the appointment eventually.

Mr Hong did also name 11 new members of the Kukkiwon board last Friday August 16th.

- Lim Yun Taek (Seoul Taekwondo Association President)

- Kim Chul Ho (KTA Vice-President)

- Kim Tae Il (Taekwondo Professional Association President)

- Hwang In Sik (Kyengkido Association Vice-Presiedent)

- Kim Sang Chen (Kyeng Min University Professor)

- Kim Hyen Sueng (Former Congressman)

- Kim Chel Ki (Former Secretary General of the Pro Park Movement)

- Oh Hyen Deuk (Former Kukkiwon Vice-President)

- Kim Myeng Yeun (Congressman)

- Ham Jin Kyu (Congressman)

However, this list of new members of the Kukkiwon board has caused controversy, as the appointments were made on the same day that the former board was dissolved.

How DPRK Corruption is hurting the Taekwon-Do World

This is another article in a series that is focusing on the DPRK “influence” in the Taekwon-Do world.  Good or bad, the DPRK has had it’s hand in things.  I want reader to know that these articles are not a reflection of the average people of North Korea, they are Korean’s and as Korean’s we share a common bond of friendship and mutual respect.  We are mainly discussing the government and its agents and not those of the Korean peoples!

ChongChonGang-540x304

Chong Chon Gang 청천강호/淸川江號 (AP photo)

It is known quite publicly that the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korean (DPRK) AKA North Korea has had a system of corrupt officials, politicians and that the average citizens has about as much right to live a “free” life as a horse fly does.  The DPRK also routinely violates the laws of other nations, and most recently tried unsuccessfully to travel through the Panama Canal Zone which, the Panamanian government stopped and seized the cargo ship Chong Chon Gang 청천강호/淸川江號 where they found two MiG21 Fighter Jets, short and medium range missile and other contraband that is currently banned under UN mandates.

The Chong Chon Gang recently docked in Cuba, a very rare friend of the DPRK in the Western Hemisphere, and they make the claim the weapons were being refurbished by the DPRK however, this clearly isn’t the case, as both MiG fighters had fuel in them, and as any Navel personal will tell you, you only send fuel in equipment if you plan on using them!  This particular cargo ship has a long history, it has been detained by authorities all over the world, especially since 2003, it has been cited or detained by other nations such as the Ukraine, Iran, Egypt, Malaysia, Portugal, Philippines and more recently of course recently Panama.  This ship along with the majority of the DPRK cargo fleet routinely turns off its AIS (global maritime satellite position) which is mandated by international maritime law as well.

So, what does this have to do with Taekwon-Do?  Well quite frankly, on the surface of it….nothing, but when you look at the culture behind the DPRK, and the fact that they have 73 North Korean black belts (several in the Master status) now actively teaching throughout the world, mainly in the former Soviet Bloc counties, but, also in some “Western bloc” as well, like New Zealand, Japan, etc. They are now promoting a art that to them is 30 years old, and producing black belt instructors that truly don’t understand the art, either technically or spiritually.  This is based on first hand knowledge, actions they portray publicly, and privately.  And in a few examples there near god like devotion to the DPRK system.

DPRK coin showing “Juche Taekwon-Do”

I along with my guest writers and myself, we will go into detail on what it is like to train under a “DPRK” instructor and allow you the readers to compare that to training under other instructors.  If the DPRK instructors were truly teaching Taekwon-Do…then this article and any like it would not  be of interest, however, their brand of Taekwon-Do is not that of the International Taekwon-Do Federation (ITF), it is their own brand, that they use the ITF to have the ability to travel and teach “ITF Taekwon-Do” however, it is really “Juche Taekwon-Do” 주체태권도/主體跆拳道  and this is evident any time you see Taekwon-Do in North Korean medial, print or even commemorative coins and stamps!

The “Kukkiwon” of DPRK the Taekwon-Do Palace

Over the next series of weeks, we will publish first hand accounts of training, money raising, technical standards and other means used by instructors from the DPRK that you, the reader can judge for yourselves if the DPRK style instructors are teaching Taekwon-Do or are they furthering themselves, and or the DPRK regime.
