Simply learning the theories and principles of the martial arts is not enough to become a complete martial artist. You must also train diligently in order to gain a true understanding of the techniques and the physical prowess to perform and express them properly. Jungyae curriculum has been divided into ten sections, which are each taught at the eighteen belt levels. When combined, students will have a complete understanding, along with a true balance of mind, body, and spirit.

HISTORY OF COLORED BELTS
History has shown us the methods by which our ancestors learned to defend themselves against animals and enemies. The techniques and methods they have developed are natural and graceful movements, which we now know today as the Martial Arts. (During this earlier time people would use the belt as a means of holding up their pants in training.)
In the Korean culture, the color white is a favorite. Other Asian nations started to call the Korean people a white ethnic nation because the clothes that they would wear for training were white, including the belt. During their training in the Martial Arts they would continue to use the same belt, never washing it, and in time the belt would get dirty, and so, depending on the length of time the person would be training, the darker his belt would get. The belt would eventually turn black, which would indicate the length of time and the level of ability that person had reached in the Martial Arts. So through practice and time, they started to dye different parts of the belt to signify one’s ability in the Martial Arts.
This system progressed to the point where we have different color belts for each rank, starting from white and continuing with darker colors up to the black belt level.

HAND TECHNIQUES
The hand techniques of Jungyae Moosul have been developed to maximize speed and balance, when combined, produce true power in their expression and performance. Each technique, in its design, will ensure proper rotation of the hand and body, which will help your energy to flow properly and efficiently.
All of the blocking techniques used in Jungyae Moosul are rooted in the “Five Principle Blocks.” These blocking principles are the roots of all the blocking techniques, theories, and principles used in the martial arts.
The same theories and principles behind the Five Principle Blocks are also applied to offensive striking techniques as well. While blocks and strikes are differentiated between in the beginning and appear to be quite different, it ultimately will be seen that there is truly no difference between blocking and striking, offense and defense.

FOOT TECHNIQUES
The foot techniques of Jungyae Moosul are rooted in the “Seven Principle Kicks,” which again, are the roots of all-kicking techniques, theories, and principles used in all of the martial arts. Although the kicks can be performed in an endless combination of movements, they are all rooted firmly in the Seven Principle Kicks. You will first build a solid foundation by learning the proper mechanics of these seven root kicks. Upon learning them, you will begin to develop different ways to apply these kicks, either through stepping, jumping, spinning, performing them while on the ground, or other endless combinations.

FORMS
Many people, even martial arts masters, do not understand the importance of forms in martial arts training. There are an endless number of benefits and important factors involved in the practice of forms. The most basic are gaining understanding of proper coordination and balanced movement, along with exacting accuracy in the execution of techniques. They serve to help the student learn to apply proper rotation in hand techniques, while building strength, balance, and fluidity. They also aid in helping one perform stances properly, execute kicks correctly, and develop, speed, power, concentration, and a true warrior spirit.
While forms are not designed to replace sparring, they do provide a basic and fundamental understanding of the proper use of techniques and movement in combat. Also of great value, is the ability you gain to learn and understand forms quickly? The forms of any martial arts style offer a great insight into the execution and performance of techniques within that style. With the ability to learn and understand forms completely and efficiently, and also comes the ability to evaluate and understand all styles of martial arts.

WEAPONS
Since man’s existence, the development of tools for work and defense has been a crucial part of our evolution. Through the use of tools, we have been able to reach a level of physical and intellectual development that would have been impossible otherwise.
Likewise, the use of weapons has always existed in the martial arts, and as an extension of our bodies, play an integral part in the development of the complete martial artist. As extensions of our bodies, they respond to our coordination of energy and movement. The key to understanding the various weapons is realizing that all martial arts techniques are the same and are related through the root theories and principles taught in Jungyae Moosul.
The endless list of weapons can be broken down into four categories: Short, long, flexible, projectile, or weapons used for throwing. While every weapon will fall into one or more of these categories, and their use will vary depending on the unique characteristics of each weapon, the theories and principles of their use and application are essentially the same.
By studying the use of the various weapons of the Martial Arts we not only improve our physical strength and coordination but also increase our level confidence, focus and sense of self. In addition we also put ourselves in touch with the warriors of the past by understanding the ways in which they used weapons to improve and increase their combat abilities.

SELF-DEFENSE
The true roots and beginning of intelligent forms of combat and self-defense are older than man. Primates are often observed using tools such as sticks to beat the brush to scare potential predators and to chase out their prey. They are also known to throw rocks and dirt in the faces of their opponents when fighting over a mate. It is this use of tools rather than simply teeth and claws that sets them apart form other animals that rely on instinct rather than intelligence during combat situations.
With the introduction of advanced science and deeper understanding of the human body, they can be seen in a much more logical and complete manner. In order to understand the martial arts completely, you must understand not only the techniques but also more importantly the theories and principles behind them.
Once you have gained a true understanding of these components, you will be able to use them individually or in any combination.

SPARRING
Sparring is perhaps one of the most vital and necessary components of a complete martial artist. In ancient times warriors would spar often in order to cleanse themselves of either the fear or desire for combat. It is, however, imperative that you first learn the techniques properly so that you can deliver them with speed and power, while using your energy efficiently. It is also imperative that you understand the difference between sparring and combat. While the main focus of combat is to defeat your opponent with as little injury to yourself as possible, sparring is the controlled process through which you learn and ultimately understand the proper use of offensive and defensive techniques, movements, and strategies during combat. The goal of sparring should not be one of winning, but rather one of learning.
While sparring, it is essential that you remain calm and focused on the movements of yourself and your opponent. You should never try to move faster than is necessary to execute clean, controlled, and proper techniques. This will only lead to learning ineffective combat skills.
For safety and positive training environment, every student must follow these rules when sparring.
1. No sparring without instructor present.
2. Spar at junior belt tempo.
3. Senior rank, control your techniques. Junior rank, respect you’re senior.
4. Ask questions when there is a problem (Don’t argue).
5. Act with thought, not with emotion.
6. Clean and proper techniques.
7. Absolute focus and concentration is required at all times.
8. Control the power of your techniques.

BREAKING
Breaking is not, as some believe, a simple display of brute force or showmanship, but rather an extremely physical example of your focus, speed, power, and overall skill. Breaking is necessary in order for you to learn proper techniques, develop adequate speed, concentration, and correct angle of delivery, timing, and precise target selection, thereby building confidence to try new things. Examples include trying new food groups, trying new experiences, and learning new techniques.

ESSAYS
The focus of Jungyae Moosul is providing its students with a complete martial arts education. Students are not only led to develop the body, but also the mind and spirit. In order to reach this goal you must spend an adequate amount of time in the areas of study and mental discipline. At each belt level you will be required to write an essay on varying topics. These essays are not designed as a test of your knowledge, but rather a tool or compass to lead your study of theory, principle, and philosophy in the right direction. The best essays are not those that blindly quote or repeat knowledge; instead they are the ones that speak form the heart, invoking personal introspection and self-discovery.

SUPPLEMENTAL TRAINING
The Jungyae Moosul requirement curriculum was designed to give you a solid foundation and complete understanding of the theories, principles, and basic techniques of the martial arts. You will also be taught many other important techniques, theories, and principles that may not be required for testing. They will give you a more complete and balanced knowledge of the martial arts, and help you to reach your full potential. You should treat these lessons with the same level of importance as those that you will be tested on.

CONDITIONING
Conditioning is the one true attribute of a great martial artist or athlete. When one is conditioned well physically, they also will have much better mental condition, because their internal organs are functioning properly, and their blood is flowing through their body correctly. This will aid in their breathing and increase their energy. It is imperative to be well conditioned as a martial artist.
In real-life conflicts, the strong will always prevail. Therefore, conditioning the body to become as strong as one can be is essential. As the body becomes stronger, one will develop a higher level of self-confidence. Application of practical fighting techniques is more tangible if the individual’s training is supplemented with conditioning exercises.
Conditioning exercises should be done routinely three times a week in moderation for maximum benefit.
