Wonhwado was not secretly transmitted
to any single person or group.
It was a very simple and small movement that our ancestors always acted everywhere,
but it was a vital three-mu movement, Bi-son.
It is a gesture that expresses the joy and excitement you feel when it flows through your shoulder to body,
starting with a small movement of rubbing your hands with gratitude and faith,
whether you are happy or sad in your daily life.
It seems that we who live today may have forgotten it, but like a reed that makes a sound when the wind blows,
it is our gestures and beliefs that come out spontaneously when we meet the excitement.
Whenever and wherever we close our eyes, the various gestures that appear in our minds
(it is like dancing, like martial arts, and like playing with each other), it would be foolish if you guess that it started out as one person.
However, as some people more enjoyed singing, so they became singer, and because some people more enjoyed dancing, they became dancers.
As such, the Great Grand Master Han Bong-gi, the 2nd Grand Master Jo Ik-hun and some people, with who enjoyed this as a martial art, came together and started, under the name of Wonhwado. The name Wonhwado (圓和道) is a name that includes ‘the harmony of several circles’, that is, ‘圓和,’ and the ‘道’ that distinguishes between what should be done and what should not be done.
