Chayon-Ryu International Martial Arts Association
Grandmaster Kim Soo, Founder
Chayon-Ryu ( Korean for "The Natural Way" ) was developed
over many years by Grandmaster Kim Soo. Chayon-Ryu is based on the
natural movements found within each of its parent styles - Chinese
Chu'an Fa, Japanese Karate, Korean Taekwondo, Okinawa-Te, Judo/
Jujitsu, and Hapkido/ Aikido. Chayon -Ryu teaches natural body motion
as the basis of all techniques in order to promote power, safety,
health, and fitness.
Chayon-Ryu is more than just the physical practice of several martial
arts. Within the practice, it incorporates an educational system
From this system,
one becomes self confident and through self - confidence, one gains
self esteem. With these components, one is able to fight the every
day enemies, which are not external ( physical attackers ) but internal
such as stress, worry, insecurity, jealousy, impatience, defeat,
- Common Sense
Chayon-Ryu is especially valuable to children. Since the focus is
on training ones mind, body, and spirit and not on fighting, violence
or competition, the child is able to take away a feeling of accomplishment,
self-worth and a way of life through mental and physical balance.
