Poomsae - Koryo

Koryo - is the name of the Korean Dynasty that existed from 918 A.D. To 1392 A.D.  The English word ‘Korea’ was derived from the original name ‘Koryo’.  The Koryo Dynasty excelled in the cultural arts (noted especially for it’s beautiful ceramics) and also exhibited dynamic strength as it defeated persistent Mongolian aggression.  The movements of poomse Koryo reflect the strength, perseverance and indomitable spirit required to crush Koryo’s adversaries.

Trachea-crushing grabs, beautiful double side kicks and an action-filled, explosive ending characterise poomsae Koryo.  Koryo is the poomse for 1st Dan.
