“Live by the Sword”

A Podcast by Hwa Rang Do® Grandmaster Taejoon Lee

I have been asked by many students to publicly share my teachings through a podcast or in a book format. And so, I have finally decided to launch an official podcast starting this month of October 2021 and I also have made plans for a future book.


2021 Digital Championships and Seminar Recap

On Sunday July 11, 2021 the WHRDA hosted a special day of seminars and global celebration of Italy’s 20th Anniversary.  While there is normally a global gathering in-person each year for a world championship tournament and a week-long training conference, this year we coordinated world time zones to connect via zoom due to the continued COVID restrictions.

The majority of participants were able to join in with their peers from their local Academies & Clubs, as most dojang locations were able to setup a big screen TV experience for the event.  Everyone else connected from home, from cabins, or even from summer vacation settings, and the couple hundred participants moved through a quality online event experience.

For us the championships, tournaments, seminars, the activities, the events, is all an expression of our love, created by a labor of love, and an opportunity to commune, share, and unite as one global family. I wanted to say “One big global family”, but we are not, we are actually very small in comparison to other martial arts and I am not sure that we will ever be much bigger in numbers as that is not our only aim.

First, I want to express my immense joy and gratitude to be able to see my wonderful Hwa Rang Do family and share this historical moment during these crazy, unstable times.

My message to you is that we as Hwarang must never forget who we are and why we practice and train daily in this beautiful art.

Centurion to Hwarang


One could have never imagined that in the 21 Century that the stronghold of the Hwarang Warriors would be in what was once the center of the Western Civilization, the Roman Empire, but in retrospect it seems as though it was destiny. It would take a man who has dedicated his entire life to become a strong warrior, who is of the most disciplined character and unyielding fortitude, living a life of military service, unknowingly being exemplary of the Hwarang Spirit, who would ultimately connect with its kindred spirit.

WHRDA 2021 Online Summer Events

While it is unfortunate that we are not able to meet in person through our Annual Seminars and Conferences for the last two years, we must press-on, so this year we will be holding a special online event.  There will be an opportunity to train with Dojoonim and Kuksanim via live zoom sessions, we will have a digitial tournament, and also include a celebration highlighting Italy's 20th Anniversary. 

Please see the below pages for more information about the events, and make sure to get registered right away!

Courage to Never Retreat in the Face of the Enemy

Now more than ever we need to reflect, understand, and exercise our Fourth Code. Our ancient leaders, king, and sage were all wise to establish a warrior code which can stand as a foundation for the cultivation and development of perfect warriors. Before any physical training, formation of troops, devising of battle plans, the Hwarang O Kae was written and laid down by a Sage Won Kwang Bopsa. He wrote down five simple, eloquent, yet powerful codes to follow for the perfection of a person desiring to serve and protect the king, the people, and the land by exemplifying what is good, honorable, and noble, the highest value being one of self-sacrifice.
