History of Korean Karate

Juji gatame from an early 60's demo at around 2.50

That's cool. Don't even know there is korean karate. Always tought there is only taekwondo


tae kwon do is korean karate. It's actually japanese shotokan .

korean karate = japanese karate practiced in korea before the koreans lied up a story to make it a "unique & traditional korean art" for nationalistic reasons, calling it tkd.

TKD still used the shotokan katas up until the late 60's or so. Some tang soo do dojang still do. Phone Post 3.0
