Relentlessly Seeking Truth

Empowering Lives

Serving Humanity

We better ourselves with the final goal of inspiring others, empowering the world one person at a time

In order to realize our mission, we live our lives following a noble code of ethics that have been transmitted since the time of the Hwarang Knights, almost 2000 years ago:



사군이충  SA GUN E CHOONGLoyalty to one’s King and Country

사친이효 – SA CHIN E HYOLoyalty to one’s parents and teachers

교우이신 –  KYO WOO E SHIN – Trust and brotherhood among friends

임전무퇴 – IM JEON MU TWAE – Courage never to retreat in the face of the enemy

살생유택 –  SAL SENG YOO TECH – Justice never to take a life without a cause


In addition, the Founder of Hwa Rang Do®, Dr. Joo Bang Lee, added the following nine doctrines that are now part of our code:

 – IN - Humanity


 – UEI - Justice


 – YAE - Courtesy


 – JI - Wisdom


 – SHIN - Trust


 – SUN - Goodness

 – DUK Virtue

 – CHOONGLoyalty

 – YONG - Courage
