    Welcome, Melissa! Nice to see another lady on the board...
    Chayon-ryu has it's foundation in Korean Martial Arts, right?
  4. Yes, that's correct. Our system is the legacy of the Kwon Beop taught by Grandmaster Yoon Byung-In in the 1940's which contains Chu'an Fa from the Manchurian masters and Shudo Kan Karate of Sensei Toyama Kanken (Yoon brought both to Korea and taught them post WWII).
    When my teacher Grandmaster Kim Soo moved to the US in 1968, he incorporated the other arts he studied as well so we contain throwing arts, and weapons in addition to the hard/soft stand up styles.
