The Origin of Taekwondo – Tongkat Ali, Uang Tunai, Togel Hongkong & Dongkwon Do
Togel H. Hongkong is a renowned name in the world of martial arts. Born in 1954, this legendary martial artist became a national hero when he successfully trained the Thai army. He received a commission as an officer and rose quickly through the ranks to become the highest ranked officer in the Thai Army. In recognition of his achievements, Thailand elevated him to the rank of Grand Colonel. He retired to teach at various schools and is widely regarded as the world’s top martial arts exponent.
Togel H. Hongkong combined the traditional kicks and strikes with various weapons including the staff and the axe. He combined it all with a powerful stance and was well known for his resilience and courage. This combined with a unique skill for executing evasive actions made him a highly respected and skilled trainer. His most famous weapon in the field of martial arts was the staff or metta. Known as terrain, this weapon was originally created in the early 7th century from a pole that was curved with three to four poles linked together.
Togel H. Hongkong had a teaching career in several cities in Thailand before he settled into his seperti band studio style in Bangkok. It was this seperti band saudo style which was adapted by Bruce Lee to make the katarni, which he used as a weapon for many of his moves. The katarni was later refined to form a more complete martial art with the addition of the mauk (club), ensam (pole arm) and malun (left hand). The style was named after Master Hongkong who taught at a school called Kata-Ryu, located in Bangkok. Other teachers of this style include Tongsun Norbu, Jeet Kune Do and Don Prinick.
In his book, The Essence of Thailand, Bruce Lee presented several modified versions of the hongkong combination. He called these modified versions “The Body and the Mind.” One of these is the so-called “rambling method,” wherein the body moves in a figure-eight pattern while the mind wanders back and forth across the body. This rambling method is also referred to as “rambling foot technique.” Other modified forms of the combination include the somersault dance with hongkong, the so-called “fist dance” using a hongkong and four fingered stick, the so-called “four finger walk” using the left hand and honking, and the “box walk” using only hongkong.
Togel Hongkong and Uang Tunai are considered to be the founders of the modern day taekwondo, or the Korean martial art, Taekwondo. However, Togel Hongkong and Uangtunai are also considered as precursors, because they both developed their systems in the same environment, in Korea. Thus, the early roots of Taekwondo can be traced to its original founder, Kim Young-Soo.
Taekwondo has many branches. In order for us to understand taekwondo as an art, we must learn how it evolved from the traditional forms of Korean martial arts (tae kwon do), and how each branch differs from the other branches. For example, in taekwondo, there are four major forms: the job, San, jang, and sok. Each form is named for its Korean counterpart. Among the four major forms, we can divide them into five, which are the setai, internal power, external power, flying and ground fighting.
