Hwa Rang Do® O Kae

Origin Creed

 The study of human morality is more important to the Hwa Rang Do® practitioner than learning how to kick and punch. When you make a weapon out of a human through the learning of combat skills, you must have the responsibility to use this knowledge properly. Without this understanding of human morality, the martial art practitioner will cause great harm to themselves and the rest of society. That is why the moral foundation of Hwa Rang Do® is the Hwa Rang Do® Meng Sae. This is made up of the ancient Hwarang’s five rules, and Founder Dr. Joo Bang Lee’s nine philosophies concerning human morality.
