About Senior Grandmaster Young Pyo Choi
Skills and Experience
With few resources, his trademark became a black uniform, sneakers, and a towel around his neck. He also sought out and developed expertise in Hapkido and TaeGukKwan Tai Chi and gained experience with KiMooDo (the Way of Martial Arts Energy), which emphasizes holistic well-being in all areas of life. In addition, he has become an expert in some weapons and, over the years, developed his MooJung style of Chong Bong (long staff) and Kum Bop (sword) techniques and forms. In fact, to other Grandmasters who know him, he is known as Moo Jung, the honesty style, a reference to his emphasis on rightness and correctness in the development of human character.
Those who know Master Young Pyo Choi are aware of his artistic abilities. His schools and training materials are decorated with unique art graphics, and he plays the traditional Korean drum known as the dae-book. His martial arts training has helped develop his concentration and coordination, enabling him to become a champion tennis player in high school and later an accomplished golf player, becoming a certified golf teaching professional in the US Golf Teachers Federation (USGTF).
