Glossary of Korean Terms

Korean Flag Although SulKiDo sessions are primarily conducted in plain English, a number of Korean terms are used in cases where there is no simple English equivalent. The glossary below explains many of the phrases used within Korean martial arts (but don't panic - most of these are rarely used). Pronunciation is phonetic.
