This book is intended to educate the student about the meaning and value of traditional Moo Doe (martial arts). In this country, many people are confused about martial arts. Some people think of martial arts as simple self defense, and some think that it is a sport or a contest. Still others think of martial arts as exercise, or simply a way to “get in shape.” This is unfortunate, since traditional martial arts is a way to cultivate your mind and body to reach your fullest potential.

Throughout this book, you will find a clearer definition of martial arts and an explanation of the movements and forms that comprise true Moo Doe. There is a right way and a wrong way to do everything. In the U.S. today, there are many so-called martial arts instructors who merely make up movement or form, or mix movements and forms with exercise or athletics. They are not only diluting martial arts, but are in fact experimenting with students by teaching unbalanced movement. The results can be damaging to the individual or, at best, of little or no benefit.

Traditional Moo Doe has been developed over centuries, and many generations of practitioners have dedicated their lives to finding the most correct ways for reaching their fullest potential. This knowledge is highly prized in Asia, and a school that can teach correct Moo Doe knowledge is not common nor easy to find. Here in the United States, we have only just begun to understand the depth of true Moo Doe knowledge and how to recognize true Moo Doe ability. The photographs, symbols, and explanations in this handbook are meant to illustrate the strength of the movements and forms. For the student willing to learn and apply him or herself, history has proven that the rewards are well worth the effort. It is the extraordinary mental and physical development and the combining of the mind, body, and spirit that is Traditional Moo Doe. And, in truth, what can be more valuable than that type of knowledge?
