HANMOM TRAINING is a way of training to integrate traditional Korean martial arts. The word ‘Han‘ means ‘center, big, and good.’ The word ‘Mom‘ means ‘the whole body, specifically the body connected to the mind.’ As shown in the words, HANMOM TRAINING makes people strong and flexible through various body-mind training methods.

“… From the moment I passed 50, I was diagnosed with the early stage of diabetes, experiencing various signs of aging. I desperately tried to workout, including strengthening muscle at a gym, swimming, fast-walking, etc., in the hope of making my symptom better, but the effect was just minor. In addition, since I became tired easily, I could not keep up with the amount of workout I planned. After I began to learn this training, I lose weight by 3 kg, my waist size was reduced, and the body corrected. Above all, I became confident of overall health condition of mine…”
