24 Skills of Martial Arts Performance 2016


In 1790, Silhak (Practical Science) scholars like Yi Deok-mu and Bak Je-ga , together with martial arts specialist Baek Dong-su, compiled a book titled Muyedobotongji (Comprehensive Illustrated Manual of Martial Arts) as instructed by King Jeongjo (1776-1800). At that time, troops at Hwaseong Fortress practiced the 24 skills of martial arts contained in this book. The skills are regarded as valuable intangible cultural heritage in the historic, artistic, and athletic aspects. Martial arts specialists demonstrate their skills at the Temporary Palace of Hwaseong Fortress.
