Ancient Korean Sparring

Posted by on Saturday, April 5, 2014 Under: Art


This mural was painted at Kak-Je Tomb in Koguryo, one of the ancient Three Kingdoms of Korea. Produced in the age of San-Sang, the tenth king of the realm who ruled Koguryo from 197–227 CE, it shows combatants sparring in the early Korean martial art Soo Bak-Gi, a precursor to modern taekwondo.
