"Learning techniques but not being able to apply them is like 
learning your ABC's but not being able to read."

What is JunsaKwon? The history of JunsaKwon starts with the Korean martial art of Hapkido. Hapkido is a Korean style known as "The Way of Coordinated Power and Spirit". It was founded by Choi Yong Sool (AKA: Asao Yoshida/1904-1986). Choi had learned Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu from its headmaster Sokaku Takeda while living in Japan from 1915 to 1945. Shortly after World War II Choi returned to Korea and began teaching Jūjutsu, referred to also as Yu Sul and later Hapkido. 


“Hap” is harmony or balance, “Ki” denotes the essence of power/energy/spirit and “Do” means the way/path/method. The grappling and joint locking techniques of Japanese Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu were combined with Korean kicking. According to my teacher, Yu Chong Su (Chong Su Kwan Hapkido & Kumdo, Song Tan City, So. Korea), many of the modern kicks used in today's Hapkido were derived from Tae Kyun (Ancient Korean Kicking Art) and were not part of the original Jūjutsu that Choi brought from Japan, this was added after by other instructors.  

JunsaKwon, which can be translated as Warriors Fist, is a 100% self-defense combatives hybrid martial art that's concepts are based on scientific principles of anatomy, combat tactics and strategy while also giving respect to the philosophies of ancient warrior traditions. It is a system free from the limitations imposed by other styles of Hapkido.


JSK consists of kicks, punches and a variety of throwing, grappling, joint locks and joint breaks. Every method of attack is studied, along with corresponding defensive responses. The student learns how to analyze a threatening situation quickly and, if necessary, to utilize the appropriate self-defense technique. The emphasis is on redirecting the assailants’ aggression and power back toward them by restraining their movement, controlling the body and if necessary, subduing them. Strikes and kicks are similar to those of Karate and Tae Kwon Do, but are more target specific in that they are aimed at vital spots on the human body to include the lower legs and joints. 


Fancy and unrealistic techniques have been removed and replaced by a core group of techniques that are easy to learn as well as being realistic in a self-defense situation. JSK is an extremely realistic and versatile discipline of self-protection. Joint locks are a strong part of the training as well as throwing techniques that are similar to those in Judo but with an emphasis on constant contact.


Does the student learn grappling? Yes, at the yellow belt level the student begins training in Combat Grappling. Unlike traditional Hapkido, Jūjutsu style grappling and sparring has been incorporated to allow the student a strong familiarization with ground positional control while maintaining a self-defense component. 


  1. Striking: Utilizing feet and hands as dynamic striking  weapons by perfecting and properly targeting weak spots of the human body. 

  2. Joint, Arm & Body Locks: Controlling and restraining the opponent's movement and being able to subdue them. 

  3. Weapons: Learn to utilize standard weapons (both blunt & bladed) and to turn mundane objects into effective impact tools. 

  4. Combat Grappling (Ground Combatives). The opponents ability to utilize their full power becomes extremely limited when you are able to take them down and control them on the ground.
