Woo-Nam 우남 雩南 Hyung

Woo Nam is the pseudonym for the First President of the Republic of Korea, Dr. Syngman Rhee [1948-1960], who approved TaeKwon-Do as a Korean Martial Art.

General Choi created Woo- Nam Hyung to honor President Rhee’s contribution to Tae Kwon Do. Unfortunately, President Rhee was forced to resign due to the nationwide protests against his government in 1960 and Woo- Nam Hyung was not included as one of the TaeKwon-Do Hyung/Tuls.

The WOO-NAM TUL is for all levels of black belt.
