The Self-Defense Yongmudo Club (formerly Hapkido Club) was established in 1974. Yongmudo has been practiced at Yongin University in Korea since 1953 as a self-defense art (doe-soo-bang-ur, or “Korean way of barehand training in self-defense”). Yongmudo techniques are modern, open, and dynamic, combining martial arts such as Taekwondo, Judo, and Ssirum to develop a futuristic way of self-defense through physical, psychological, spiritual, and mental training with up-to-date scientific knowledge. The UC Yongmudo Club, along with thousands of martial arts masters all over the world, spearheaded the formation of the World Yongmudo Federation in 1999.
Techniques for Self-Defense Yongmudo Club include strikes, throws, joint locks, grappling, and pressure points.
