Soke is a pioneer of the martial arts because he has established a system based on all the disciplines that he learned since he began training. In 1984 he created Ji Chung Do Kan Hapki Ryu. Ji Chung Do Kan is not a new system in the sense of the word, but an idea that was developed from over 20 years of martial arts experience and studies. The term Ji Chung Do Kan is coined merely out of respect to the styles, teachers and masters who Soke has studied under directly or who have influenced him. We are not interested in which style or system is best. Our concern is our own personal development. We are open-minded about all ideas and ways, yet we will still have own systematic way.
