Police Martial Arts

Member Organization(s)


The police martial arts is a mix of Taekwondo, Hapkido, Gumdo, Jiu-jitsu, MMA, and Boxing including self-defense and arrest techniques.


In addition to the liberation of Korea on 15 August 1945, the U.S. Military Government opened the Police Training Center(later renamed as the National Police Academy in 1946) in Seoul on 13 September, recruiting and training approximately 2,000 officers. That was the first democratic police education in Korea.

On 12 June 1949, the Police Academy taught arrest-techniques in the technical course, and this has been developed as the police martial arts education.

As the Korean National Police University was opened in 1981, the academy installed the department of Martialism and educate the students in taekwondo, hapkido, judo, kendo, and arrest-techniques.

The National Police Agency is focusing its efforts on the distribution of unified and systematic arrest-techniques to all police officers by training police martial arts instructors collectively and distributing "police basic arrest-techniques" to police stations nationwide.
