What many people do not understand is that the martial art of Tae Kwon Do that spread across the world after the Korean War (1950-1953) was invented by the US imperialists after their defeat in that conflict. This was because most of the ‘real’ Korean martial arts masters livid in North Korea and supported the Socialist government for the empowerment of the ordinary Korean people. The US colony of South Korea is a Christianised fabrication with martial arts that stem from fascist Japan!
Not only this, but much of traditional Korean martial arts are preserved and practised in Northern Chinese provinces such as Jilin – where annual competitions and displays are held. Although ethnic Koreans living in China naturally dominate these events – Communist China is very proud when Chinese practitioners get anywhere near the top three positions in competition! The top picture is of a baking tool used in self-defence in North Korea termed the ‘Fighting Steamed-Dumpling Hammer’ (打糕槌 – Da Gao Chui). North Korea has a long history – once being apart of China – which a very rich and unique martial history. This is why many ethnic Koreans still live in North-East China and preserve their martial traditions.
