- 5/25/2017 Think about this:
Did daito-ryu aikijujutsu master Takeda Sogaku make any final statements to you before his death?
Choi Yong-sul: "He said goodbye to me, and he spoke of my longtime desire to return to Korea. He bid me to do so. He was concerned that because of my position in his household and because of my Korean heritage, I would be assassinated if I remained in Japan. Had I remained after his death and tried to succeed him, it would have been dangerous.
"I returned, with my household, shortly after Takedas death. We settled in Taegu, Kyung Buk province. There, I established my first Korean dojang, and I have made my home there ever since. After returning, I changed my name back to Choi Yong-sul and the name of my art to Hapkido."

We love the martial arts. We love it like we love our children, our freedom, our history. We love the martial arts as much as we love to train, as much as we love the rush of the right technique at exactly the right moment, as much as we love the thrill of a good contest.
At MartialInfo.com we are committed to the entire "village" that is the world of martial arts. We are here for the fighter, the fan, the teacher, the coach, the parents, the traditionalist, the eclectic practitioner, the expert, the novice, the filmmaker, the actor, the celebrity, and the unknown master. We celebrate the diversity of our histories, of our people, of everything that is the best - of - the-best of what we do - and what we are capable of.
We believe that there is something to the study of the martial arts, something beyond the technique, beyond what takes place in the ring - something magical and interesting and important. We respect all methods, and all of the men and women on their own paths, from all the countries, from all the schools, passing down what it is they have learned or are in the process of learning.
We really love the martial arts and this site is dedicated to martial artists everywhere. We think that the martial arts world makes THE WORLD a better, safer, and more interesting place to be. We hope that we are a part of the village that helps you be a better martial artist - and as a result, a better human being."
