Yongmudo looks to kick off its practice in Cambodia

The governing body of Yongmudo, a South Korean martial art founded in 1953, is looking to introduce the discipline in the Kingdom.

International Yongmudo Federation president Kyung Bae Ki made a visit on Wednesday to the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia headquarters, where he urged NOCC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun to support its practice in Cambodia.

Vath Chamroeun told the Post: “We would like to welcome this new martial art, which is similar to taekwondo but also includes grappling techniques, in Cambodia as long as their federation helps provide coaches, equipment and a suitable training venue.”
