Red Bull Korea hosted one of the illest Tricking & Kick Battles in Seoul last month. Check it out below.
We’re excited to see Martial Arts & Tricking Grow and Come to the World Stage with Support of Brands like this.

On June 29th 2013 at Olympic Park K-Art hall, Red Bull ‘Kick It’ has found the most elite kicker. It has presented a new level of martial arts freestyle kicking competition and a unique platform to show what they can do with a mashup of different styles. Athletes battled head-to-head to earn the right to call themselves the most complete kicker. Shout out to Andy Le and Donovan Sheehan for representing!

Everybody in the world, whether a martial arts practitioner or not, knows of Bruce Lee – the single most iconic figure in martial arts and the person responsible for making martial arts mainstream. For the modern day kung-fu film genre enthusiasts, an action-packed movie called “Ip Man” starring Donnie Yen was released in 2008 loosely documenting the life and times of Grand Master Yip Man. What do both individuals have in common? Other than the fact that Lee was a student of Yip Man, both studied a popular Kung-fu style called Wing Chun.

This segment of Hyper’s Respect Tradition not only focuses on the style of Wing Chun itself but its founder. Unlike previous Masters featured here, Wing Chun founder Ng Mui has the distinction of being the most famous FEMALE martial arts founder in martial arts history.

Most of Ng Mui’s life is chronicled through fables and folklore and after hearing some of the stories, one would think that it came out of a movie or fictional storybook. She has been associated with many locations, each of them which could serve as a backdrop to a Hong Kong kung-fu classic film. These places include the Shaolin Temple in Fuzhou, the Wudang Mountains and the White Crane Temple. According to Wing Chun Master Yip Man, Ng Mui was the daughter of a Ming General and was Abbess at the Henan Shaolin Temple. She is said to have been one of the legendary “Five Elders” – the survivors of the destruction of the Shaolin Temple by the Qing Dynasty forces. Ng Mui then ran to the White Crane Temple (located between the Yunnan and Sichuan territories in China) and there she met Yim Wing-Chun – a vulnerable 15 year old girl who was being forced into marriage by ruthless bandits. It was here where Ng Mui taught the girl Shaolin kung-fu to help her build strength and to fend off her attackers. It was because of this relationship that Ng Mui decided to name her style Wing Chun.

In addition to Wing Chun (which is also known as Ving Tsun), she is also credited as the founder of Wu Mei Pai (the style she actually created before naming it Wing Chun), Dragon Style, and Five-Pattern Hung Kuen (based on the imitated movements of creatures).

Over the years, the mainstream popularity of Wing Chun has come from iconic figures such as Bruce Lee, who used Wing Chun as the primary foundation for his Jeet Kune Do. Most recently, Ng Mui’s legacy and essence of Wing Chun was displayed in Donnie Yen’s “Ip Man” and “Ip Man 2″. Wing Chun is practiced in over 60 countries and it considered the World’s most popular form of Southern Kung-fu.

Up until now, the Masters profiled in “Respect Tradition, Embrace Innovation” all had one thing in common – they are no longer with us to share and preserve our time-honored traditions in the Art of Karate.

This segment’s profile is Karate’s only living relic who provides us the bridge of Karate’s past and helps us understand the present and future state of the Art. This master is Hanshi Tetsuhiro Hokama.

Hanshi Hokama, who is of Okinawan decent, was born in Taiwan in 1944. He began his formal training in Shorin-Ryu with his uncle in 1952 but his more intensive formal training came in 1961 when he trained with Seiko Higa – a direct student of Goju-Ryu founder, Chojun Miyagi. Not only did Hokama learn the style of Goju-Ryu, it was through Higa that Hokama learned Kobudo through Shinpo Matayoshi, White Crane fist (Hakutsuru Ken) and an obscure style called Kingai-Ryu.


Hanshi Hokama’s resume boasts many accomplishments. In 1984, he published a book called “History of Okinawa” and is one of North America’s best selling books on the history of Karate. His most prominent accomplishment occurred in 1987 when he established and opened the World’s first ever Karate Museum in Nishihara and built a monument in Okinawa noting it as the official birthplace of Karate. Any serious karateka embarking on a Karate pilgrimage must add this on their “to do” list and Hanshi Hokama is readily available to give guided tours of both his Museum and various historical Karate landmarks in Okinawa. Check out this video tour of Hanshi Hokama’s Karate Museum in Nishihara featuring narration from Master Hokama himself. (Click Here to Watch)

Hanshi Hokama is a 10th Dan Goju-Ryu Hanshi and the President of the Okinawa Goju-Ryu Kenshi Kai Karate-Do and Kobudo Association. Its membership boasts many members worldwide. Hanshi Hokama is a “living encyclopedia” and his knowledge of the roots and history of Karate is second to none.
