Soo Bahk Do Terminology

There have been various ways to "Romanize" the Korean Hangul into English over the years, both officially and unofficially (including the variations on this page), causing quite a number of different spellings and pronunciations for the words. This page aims to help you pronounce the words as they sound in Korean by listening to the audio. The voice has been synthesized from the Korean Hangul characters.
