Do(道) of three-Mu

The spirit of Wonhwado pursues the Do(道) of three-Mu(巫-舞-武) in which several circles are harmonized. Here, Do(道) refers to knowing, realizing, and practicing the way of heaven, the way of man, and the way of the earth.
The way of sky is 1Mu and it is a Mudo(巫道) that knows the heaven. It is a life that knows that the source of all things is in heaven and lives according to the harmony and order of heaven. Knowing the heavens means knowing the will of heaven, and that means is the spirit of the Hongik Ingan( who benefit people widely.
The way of people is 2nd Mu and it is a Mudo(舞道) that knows the people. Mudo(舞道) of knowing people refers to a communal life that lives together, not that you and I exist separately, but that it is a life where everyone is together, and that we are all connected as one.
The way of the earth is 3th Mu and it is a Mudo(武道) that distinguishes between what to do and what not to do. It refers to conformity and harmony to maintain the community, and moderation and norms for the order of the community.
These three Mudo are fused into a community in which humans and nature run and in my life, creating a culture of mutual growth. In other words, the spirit of a community that lives with the importance of peace and coexistence between humans and nature by learning the moderation and norms necessary to know oneself and live together, serving the heavens, is the spirit of Korean people and it is the spirit that present day Wonhwado pursues.
The spirit of Wonhwado is found in 'Bi-son' expressed in life through our gestures. Bi-son is an act of praying for the sky with purified water, holding his hands in front of his chest and rubbing them in a circle. It is the root movement of expressing gratitude and reflection, praying for safe and peace of the year, month and day in front of the heaven.

This Bi-son movement is expanded and developed into a 360-degree sphere up and down, front and rear, left and right by the direction of rotation (angle), rotation distance (shape), rotation speed, and strength. to who like dance, it appears as dance and to who like song, it appears song and to those who enjoy martial arts, It appears as a warrior who protects the country. Therefore, Wonhwado is a philosophy, history, and spirit contained in a gesture that has naturally permeated into our universal life, rather than a martial art created by a specific person.
