My name is jonny edvinsson. The first time I test on martial arts i did not know that it would be my life style...      

  When I step in to the Dojang. I remember the screams, the smell of sweat, the atmosphere filled with considerable concentration and the practising girl in blue/red belt who made that cool technique, with a balance of speed, power and respect to his opponent, but I saw that the technologi had a clear deadly purpose. 
However,  I got a feeling of great community, all have fun despite the hard dynamic training and I remember also, it was quiet in the dojang, students have focus on what their master instructs, in order to master the new techniques...
  Sure,  in a while I will be one of them!

Several decades have passed, I‘ve collected lots experience and my black belt has successively become worn, begin to turn gray.
I have not satisfied myself with just practicing  only one style, but I have mastered three martial art styles. Haidong gumdo, Jiu-jitsu and Hapkido.  I trained other species as well, such as Jangbong and Daenamu-bong sul, Bo-Jo jutsu and Kung-fu long weapons for many years, where the foundation is in my long arms experience. Unfortunatebly I have not been able to grade myself in these weapons, because there has been no system with only long pole weapons.

I have a great passion for martial arts overall and long stick is probably one of the favorites. My great experience with long arms and that there aren‘t that many long weapons styles to train, then it was obvious to me to create and found a martial art,  weapon style and a modern sport.       

The new Korean discipline, Jangmookido is including inspired by the Korean Buddhist monk training and the old comprehensive Korean combat manual, Muye Dobo Tongji  written 1789. 
Which is based on the ancient Korean elite warrior class who devoted his life to the study of martial arts, protection and defense of the mother country.

Jangmookido is a form of body work that makes it possible to realize one‘s true self, purity the soul and elevate the spirit of this historical martial art of Korea and practising, perserving and promoting Jangmookido for all years ahead. 

Jangmookido is for those who want to develop in the long arms experience. Of course, are different (not only Korean) disciplines and styles, larges and small martial arts clubs, warmly welcomed to mastery this sport!
