Thank you for visiting the website of the World Wonhwado Federation.
One day in 1973 when the spring breeze blew, nearly 50 years have passed since I first met Great Grand Master Bong-gi Han in Cheongju. From the days of Jangan-dong, Hwayang-ri, to Cheongpyeong, Bongcheon-dong, Masan, and Jongno, sometimes as the elder brother, and sometimes as the partner of Wonhwado, he walked the path of Wonhwado together. Precious memories of that day pass by like a lantern.
Even in the midst of many ups and downs during those years, I realize that we are moving forward one step at a time with the encouragement and devotion of the interested Wonhwado People. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the Wonhwado People around the world who have worked hard to take that one step forward. Because of these people, Wonhwado can dream of tomorrow.
I sincerely hope that the more beautiful, happier, and more peaceful Wonhwa ideal world that Wonhwado pursues will come.
Grand Master Ik-Hoon Cho, Director of Wonhwawon.
