Youn Wha Ryu

Youn Wha Ryu Hanja means Lotus Flower Style martial arts (karate)

Youn Wha Ryu is a martial arts system primarily developed by Grandmaster Han who has training and mastery of several martial art systems, including Hwarang-do, Kendo, Hapkido, Judo, and Tae Kwon Do. Primarily a stand up striking art incorporating techniques from tae kwon do, karate and kung fu, Youn Wha Ryu stylists are also adept at the grappling and throwing range as well as on the ground. The system develops to the strengths of the individual and incorporates not just the kicking and striking arts but also the throws and joint locks of judo, hapkido and aikido as well as the ground game of jiu jitsu and a variety of weapons training.

It has taken Grandmaster Han a lifetime to develop and perfect this system so that anyone and everyone may participate. He strong believes that this system is the best and will continue to grow worldwide.

The hour-long classes encourage students to increase and develop full-body power, agility, coordination, balance, flexibility, reaction and timing while producing self discipline and perseverance. Training can be modified in order for students of all ability levels to participate. Rank promotion is an option for those students who can train consistently, learn all the required rank curriculum, and receive their instructor’s recommendation. All promotional testings are officiated by master level instructors of Youn Wha United.

THE LEGEND OF YOUN WHA

Related by Grandmaster Han as told to him by his Youn Wha master, Sae Chong Wang:

“Youn Wha was a legendary female martial artist living on a remote island in the Orient. She was a recognized master of alchemy and a highly skilled martial artist. Her beauty was as legendary as her skill level in the martial arts, and many highly proficient martial artists in the nations, knowing of her acclaimed beauty and skill, embarked on journeys to see her and train with her. To reach her, the martial artists had to defeat and avoid traps that could maim and kill the unwary. It was only the best and the most highly skilled martial art masters that weathered these pitfalls and were rewarded with the opportunity to view the beautiful Youn Wha.

Unbeknownst to these masters, Youn Wha would use her skills in alchemy to prevent these high level martial artists from leaving her island, by drugging their food and drink. As she was the only one who had the daily antidote, for the drug, those who left her fortress did not survive the traps. In this way, she required the masters to write down their secrets so she could gain the knowledge of their systems and train in the techniques. It is from these writings that the system of Youn Wha was formed.”
