The Power of the Mountains

Korea_CSB_TomA The 2023 Traditional Moo Doe Week Long Seminar program will consist of specific balanced movements that allow the practitioner to receive the most benefit from the mountain environment of Lake Tahoe. These movements are very powerful and can be quickly absorbed allowing the practitioner to obtain a tremendous condition in just one week’s time – leading to improved health and longevity. South Lake Tahoe was selected for the 2023 Week Long Seminar to take advantage of the unique energies of the mountain environment.

10 Unique Environments

Each natural environment has its own unique energies and benefits for training allowing the practitioner to develop the full benefits from the movements – inner strength, connection of mind & body, and fully harmonizing the body.

There are approximately 10 different ideal natural environments, including the ocean, mountains, forest, and desert all of which have many variable combinations of vegetation, ground elevation, etc. Over the centuries, true masters chose to practice in specific environments in order to absorb different energies and the methods/techniques that fit these specific environments, thereby allowing them to reach a master level.

Oom Yung Doe will continue to teach only the Chung Doe line of Traditional Moo Doe. Currently, in the United States, only a small number of schools are able to teach and demonstrate Traditional Moo Doe skill and ability. Students will see live Traditional Moo Doe demonstrations with explanations from the Master Level Teaching Team. They will clearly experience the incredible strengths of Traditional Moo Doe movements. What you see demonstrated in these movements are the skills and abilities you can achieve, allowing you to reap lifelong benefits.

Some of the foundation forms and techniques being taught at the 2023 Week Long Seminar include:

Do Not Neglect Yourself

A Philosophy of Traditional Moo Doe


Throughout the centuries, masters of Traditional Moo Doe have researched and developed proper movements that quickly lead to a higher physical, mental and spiritual condition. Traditional Moo Doe movements are known to remove negativity from all aspects of one’s life leaving only room for positive. A philosophy of Traditional Moo Doe states that if you have time to make excuses about what you have not achieved, use that time to improve your ability and reach your full potential. Ultimately, good habits lead to good character and a good character allows you to change your reality for the better. If you do not use your full ability, how do you expect a more outstanding life?

History has proven that the teachings of Traditional Moo Doe are very highly sought after because a practitioner can bring the mind, body, and spirit together. Through this you are able to reach your fullest potential and develop incredible strength and peace while extending your youthfulness, increasing your longevity, and extending your years of full activity. Traditional Moo Doe allows practitioners of any age or body type to quickly improve their condition. This is important because you can train your entire life and never develop to your fullest potential unless you learn how to develop properly. Finding the proper path is most important. Effort given to movements that do not fit one’s individual needs and age produce limited, short-term benefits. According to Traditional Moo Doe, it is extremely important to witness a practitioner’s skill and ability before you begin your practice. If a practitioner is unable to show that they have achieved a high level of skill and ability it is impossible for them to teach others. This is what separates non-traditional martial arts practitioners from Traditional Moo Doe practitioners.

No More Excuses

It is common to hear people say that they are too busy to properly take care of themselves. Neglecting yourself eventually leads to mental, physical, and spiritual pain, as well as pain that extends on to your loved ones. Maintaining yourself is the key to maintaining your success, because if you lose yourself you will lose all that you have built and all that you have acquired.

One of the main reasons that Traditional Moo Doe is valued so highly is due to the fact that through your practice you can immediately increase your chi and harmonize your condition. Eventually you will attain the ability to diagnose your own condition in order to prevent illness; you will gain the ability to harmonize and correct any mental or physical imbalance. By practicing, you will have a more balanced physical, mental, and spiritual condition. Remember, life is filled with ups and downs so it is important to maintain balance. As you begin to see your condition continuously improve, the strength that you gain through your practice will become available to you at all times during all circumstances of life. With a balanced condition you will be able to change your reality for the better; this is the challenge of life.

The Practice of Traditional Moo Doe


Worldwide, millions of people have benefited through Traditional Moo Doe. Since 1972, in the United States alone, Oom Yung Doe has continued to help millions of people by building a strong foundation based upon Traditional Martial Arts principles, therefore giving everyone the opportunity to improve themselves. At Oom Yung Doe proper movement is taught utilizing proper positions, breathing techniques, eye positions, focus and meditation. Herbal equipment and extracts that have been used for centuries by higher Moo Doe practitioners, when used in conjunction with proper movement, will enable every person, regardless of age or condition, to accelerate and increase their level of internal and external strength.


Like no other discipline, Traditional Moo Doe movements adjust to your age, body type, and condition. You will clearly see the benefits of Traditional Moo Doe by practicing only 4 to 5 hours a week. As you continue your practice and your condition improves, the amount of time that you need to practice will decrease and the benefits that you receive will quickly increase. Through Oom Yung Doe, you will learn the ancient principles of Moo Doe. Through your practice, you will be able to fully harmonize your body, challenge yourself and reach your ultimate level of mental, physical, and spiritual strength. Remember, life is only once, you do not have a spare life. Do not neglect yourself.



The 2023 Week Long Seminar will be taught by the Master Level Teaching Team to ensure the highest quality of instruction.

The Master Level Teaching Team:

  • Will be directly involved and personally teaching all aspects of the training
  • Will teach National Instructors and Assistant National Instructors about the meaning and purpose of the movements and how to properly assist in teaching the lessons

Form and Movement


The 2023 Traditional Moo Doe Week Long Seminar program is balanced to receive the most benefit from the mountain environment. These movements are very powerful and can be quickly absorbed, allowing the practitioner to obtain a tremendous condition in just one week for better health and greater longevity. Through the internal purification and meditation taught at this seminar, it is estimated that you will increase your life expectancy by at least one year.

This seminar will provide some of the foundation techniques that are necessary to absorb higher-level Traditional Moo Doe movements. These techniques are important building blocks that allow the practitioner to properly develop his or her particular mind and body, and prepare for higher-level forms that will aid his or her full development. This development will quickly be felt and can become a life-transforming experience. The movements and meditation of this seminar will allow you to purify yourself internally, which will build your hidden internal strength. Ultimately, this will lead you to properly focus your internal and external strengths of mind and body to come together as one.



• Jhoong Bong Dan/Jhoong Hyung:

Jhoong Bong is a mid length staff that ranges from 4.5 – 6 feet in length depending upon the practitioner’s height. The weapon rotates and strikes from all directions and angles with speed and power. Through proper training the practitioner will develop the right balance of defined muscle tone, strength and elasticity of the upper body. Mental focus and sharpness is also greatly enhanced through this training.

When weapon techniques are performed they should be demonstrated with the same agility and coordination as one would without the weapon, regardless of the weight or length of the weapon. This will allow the practitioner to discover an increased ability to use concentration. The reflexes become quicker, movements are smoother, and balance and timing are improved. Through continued practice the mind becomes sharper, clearer, and more focused until you reach a point where the mind, body and weapon are as one.




Those who already learned the Chung Dan Hyung (taught at the 2020 Traditional Moo Doe Week Long Seminar) will learn the Chung Jhoong Hyung. Those who do not yet have the Chung Dan Hyung will learn it at the 2023 Week Long Seminar.

• Kum Gang Quan Dan/Jhoong Hyung:

This form is for attacking and defending in a rock strewn landscape. Agility, coordination, timing, flexibility, and body control are developed. Offensive and defensive movements are executed from many positions. Practitioners of all ages will benefit from this practice. This seminar will develop strength and flexibility in the lower body.


Those who already learned the Chung Dan Hyung (taught at the 2020 Traditional Moo Doe Week Long Seminar) will learn the Chung Jhoong Hyung. Those who do not yet have the Chung Dan Hyung will learn it at the 2023 Week Long Seminar.

• Jase Yeodeol Gae (eight postures):

• Championship Course Level Adjustments Taught at the Weeklong: Weeklong participants will receive Championship Level adjustments that allow the mind, body, and movement to quickly come together as one (Pyramid Power). These adjustments:
  • Balance the weaker, underdeveloped portions of the body so you can fully utilize the techniques in your Chung Dan Hyung or Chung Jhoong Hyung
  • Allow you to fully absorb the movements in less than 10% of the time otherwise required
  • Bring out the deepest internal and external benefits of the movements and the strongest application from the techniques
  • Allow you to apply proper mental focus on the entire body for maximum strength and efficiency of movement: When the mind is aware of what the body is doing, both come together as one with movement.
  • Are personalized coaching adjustments that consider your condition, ability level, and personal needs. This enables a deeper understanding and absorption of the movements in order to quickly improve your condition, skill, and ability as well as provide accelerated training in preparation for Traditional Moo Doe Tournaments.
  • Help tournament performance; achieving a gold medal can only be accomplished through fully absorbing the movements.
  • Teach intricacies that lead to greater strength, skill and ability
  • Not only increase your skill and ability but you also your condition will change immeasurably and very quickly. You can usually feel significant improvements in only one week’s time.

• Bagua Walking and Switching Techniques:

Bagua training enables you to move your body like a coiled spring, smoothly and lightly, but with tremendous speed and power. This form includes offensive and defensive movements that develop both internal and external strength. Some of the benefits of Bagua include:
  • Agility, combined with speed and power
  • Improved offensive and defensive capabilities
  • Tremendous internal and external strength
  • Stronger immune system
  • Youthful condition

•Nae Gong Breathing (Moving Meditation):

This year’s seminar will include Traditional Moo Doe moving meditation (one of eight methods). Practice of this movement at the week long seminar can allow students to achieve a strong connection between the mind and body with as little as fifteen minutes of practice (the actual time will depend on the individual student). Practice over the course of the week will reduce the effects of stress, increase focus and increase mental acuity. You will immediately feel the difference.

Self Defense/Sparring Techniques:

The proper technique enables the practitioner to utilize their full body strength. By learning to effectively use one’s entire body, it is commonly known that even a 90-pound woman that has absorbed this technique could easily knock down a 250-pound man. The practice of proper technique is also known to quickly increase chi that harmonizes the internal system while developing deep joint and muscle strength throughout the body while maintaining flexibility.

• Nae Shim Gong:
  • Nae ~ brain or internal
  • Shim ~ heart or soul
  • Gong ~ develop, build, purify
weeklong 2007 314f

This year’s seminar will feature advanced Nae Shim Gong techniques to quickly control stress and relax the mind.

Without purifying your mind, body and soul it is extremely difficult to achieve your ultimate condition or your maximum level of mental and physical skill and ability.

Through Nae Shim Gong you gain the power to develop a high level of physical, mental and spiritual strength and ability. Oftentimes, many people do not realize what proper meditation consists of. If the proper methods of meditation – Shim Gong or Chom Sun – are unknown then it is nearly impossible to purify your soul; it is as if you were trying to reach a destination without the proper map, if you do not know where you are going, you cannot find your destination.

In today’s society, there are so many people who wish to better themselves by purifying, strengthening and unifying their mind, body and spirit. However, those who focus solely on reading and memorizing meditation techniques and teachings do not realize that the best way to reach a higher spiritual level is to purify their soul. History has proven that by purifying yourself you are able to set your ground and become rooted, which ultimately gives you the wisdom and strength to change your reality. Therefore you gain the ability to balance with society in order to maintain a happier daily life even in a world filled with stress and constant pressure.


Throughout history many people have wished to attain inner peace and achieve a high level of spirituality. In order to learn correctly many individuals search to find a venerated master who has reached a very high level of spirituality and awakening who is thereby able to teach them the proper principles and methods. Learning the proper techniques and principles are of utmost importance. If your technique and understanding is not correct it is almost impossible to purify yourself in order to attain inner peace and strength.

History has proven that Traditional Moo Doe is one of the fastest, safest and most effective ways to learn proper Nae Shim Gong techniques and principles.

Other forms and meditation techniques may be taught based on the climate and conditions at the time of the seminars.
