(Art of Internal Strength)
This art was created on May 1, 2020 by Grand Master Dafyd Haase 9th Degree Black Belt in the art of Taekwon-Do. Naebu Him-Do was created for those students who could not learn traditional Taekwon-Do due to physical and mental barriers. The name translates to "art of internal strength".
Traditional Taekwon-Do uses traditional martial arts stances, kicks and punches in routines that can be very difficult to master if your body does not cooperate or if you have a mental disability.
Naebu Him-Do has taken techniques from arts such as Taekwon-Do, Choi Kwang Do, Hapkido and Karate and blended them into a modern system that can be adapted around the students needs and abilities. The art adapts around the student, rather than the student around the art. The blending creates a harmonious balance between what is required and what is needed.
As this system is very new, there will be continuous changes to the curriculum over the next few years. This system can be added to your current curriculum of Taekwon-Do to corner that market you could be missing. Elderly, disabled, special needs, this system has something for them all.
