Royal Court Hapkido is a traditional Korean Royal Court Martial Fine Art that goes back over a thousand years to the ancient Royal Courts and Military Disciplines of Korea, China and Japan. Royal Court Martial Arts are highly specialized techniques and in ancient times this art was kept from the public and considered to be state secret. At the time these skills were only practiced by the Royal family, Royal Palace Guards and Military Officials. Today Korean Royal Court Martial Arts is known as Chung Do Mu Sool Won (True Way Martial Art Institute) and is organized under the World Chung Do Mu Sool Won Association. Chung Do Mu Sool Won is the only complete relic of the Traditional Korean Royal Court Martial Fine Arts to be found today.
