In post WWII Korea, 5 major Kwans (schools) formed and began to practice 'Korean' martial arts. Many of these styles borrowed heavily from Japanese styles, however; there were definite local influences that were throw backs to earlier Korean styles such as Subak and TaeKyon. In 1953 most of the major Kwan (school) masters elected to merge their various styles under one unifying name, Tang Soo Do. Only two years later this name would change to become TaeKwon-Do (Kicking, Punching, Way). In 1961, by official decree of the Korean Government, the Kwan's would fall under the control of the Korean TaeKwon-Do Association. The first head of this organization would be Gen. Choi.
In the early sixties TaeKwon-Do began to "explode" across the globe and in to the United States. In 1966, Choi formed the International TaeKwon-Do Union to govern the expansion of the art. By 1973 the ties between the KTA and the ITF were straining. Gen. Choi's decision to move the ITF headquarters to Canada had caused a rift that could not be repaired and the associations between the two organizations were dissolved. In 1973 the World TaeKwon-Do Federation was created by the Korean government. It is the only current TaeKwon-Do Organizations that still has official ties to Korea.
Today, there are hundreds (if not thousands) of groups that have formed to "govern"
TaeKwon-Do Organizations. The impact caused by the formation of these new organizations has been Significant. There is no longer one central authority that controls the follow of Information and that maintains standards for the art. It has, also, impacted the politics of the arts.
TaeKwon-Do has flourished in the United States since its introduction in the 1960's. This uniquely Korean art has taken on a distinctly western flavour in many American schools. It continues to grow, develop, and change to meet the needs of a new population of students with a different culture and heritage.
While almost anyone can perfect the outer form of the martial arts (the hand and foot movements), few can master its inner understanding. Traditionally, to become proficient in any martial art, a thorough knowledge of Oriental Medicine was essential. Most martial artists are involved in fundamental techniques which involve simple external power, with little knowledge of the circulatory system, and a small understanding of human anatomy. The Seibu-Do martial arts system was formed to bring together a better understanding between the External (Yang) ways of martial arts and the Internal (Yin) workings of Oriental Medicine.
Seibu-Do means "Holy Art Ways". It is a combination of various forms of Martial Arts and the secrets of Oriental Medicine. It was formed after many years of study in the late 70's by Soke Dr. Donald Swansey and Grandmaster Walter L. Rose. They combined their years of knowledge in the martial arts of Shorin-Ryu, Shotokan, Seibu-Kan, Taekwondo, Aikido, Jujitsu, and Judo with the healing arts. These included Acupuncture, Herbology, Nutrition, Qigong, Oriental Medicine,and the Natural Healing Arts.
When a person trains in the Seibu-Do martial art system, they not only develop an increase in strength, coordination, and agility but also the development of healing qualities such as "Chi". Chi means the energy that is circulating within the body. The Seibu-Do system teaches the art of Qigong (Chi Kung) which means the development of (Chi) the body's energy circulation, both to increase and control it. This will promote health, increase longer life and develop great power when used in the martial arts. It is the cultivation of vital internal energy by strict body posture, proper breathing techniques, and mind concentration. Chi Kung can help you resist disease, achieve abalance in your external environment and can create the ability to overcome internal troubles to regain and maintain health.
The Seibu-Do practitioner can also learn to sense the (Chi) energy flow through the meridians and organs of others using their hands, fingers, and eyes. This sense or "feel" of Chi energy can then be translated to the Eastern (Oriental Medicine) way of diagnosis. For example (Heat) means fromwarm to hot and is the knowledge of how heat measures "Yang". In contrast, (Cold) means from cool to cold and is the knowledge of how cold measures "Yin". When a Seibu-Do practitioner senses and redirects the "Chi" energy into another, it is like turning your arms, fingers and eyes into flowing nozzles. The practitioner can point a finger at an acupoint, or hold their palm over an afflicted area, and touch or simply think their own "Chi" into the body of another. The healthy "Chi"energy will then feel either slightly warm or slightly cool to the individual as it moves through their meridians to heal and unblock obstructions.
The Seibu-Do martial arts system also teaches Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture is a powerful medicine which aids in strengthening the immune system and serves to prevent disease, control pain, and increase both the ability to function and the quality of people's lives.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine date back over 3,000 years in China as a primary system of medicine. It uses natural laws and energetic principles with the application of needles, energy(Chi), herbs, and pressure to specific points on the body. Each point provides a specific function in the body in regulating the free flow of vital energy (Chi) through the meridians which go deep into the body. Disease, for example, is prevented or treated by stimulating or reducing the flow of vital energy through specific points. Vital energy is then strengthened or sedated, and balanced to achieve the desired result. The Seibu-Do practitioner is also trained in Oriental Medicine, which includes the use of herbs, acupressure, nutrition, and moxibustion. Herbs and nutrition are very effective at strengthening and regulating flows of energy throughout the body to restore balance. Acupressure, the use of a finger instead of needling a point, and Moxibustion, the burning of moxa over the point, help promote circulation and relax muscle spasms.
The Seibo-Do martial art system was created not only for the martial art side (Yang), but also the healing art side (Yin) as well. A practitioner will understand why they are executing a certain martial art move, and what will happen to their opponent internally. That way, a practitioner can speed healing and eliminate much of the discomfort from martial art injuries.
