Hwa Rang Do® is a humanitarian Non-Profit Association with the ultimate goal to serve and better humanity by bringing the gift of self-empowerment to those with the greatest needs, both locally and internationally.
Instead of following the trend of combat sports and commercial endeavors, Hwa Rang Do® has kept the spirit of its ancient ancestors, the Hwarang Knights, pure and alive through out the centuries. The Hwarang lived and acted in accordance with noble values like justice, courage and loyalty, and they were ready to sacrifice their own lives for their beliefs.
With our teachings, we help each person to develop character and become an honorable leader with a strong sense of social justice, in harmony with one’s own self and the universe.
Our education doesn’t focus on martial techniques only, but martial art is a means with additional teachings to provide all the elements to ensure a complete personal growth through physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development.
“We want our members to live in a way that their actions meet their intentions. Too many people live a life with good intentions, but don’t have the discipline to take action and see things through.”
Grand Master Taejoon Lee, 8th Dan of Hwa Rang Do®
