Explanation

24 Martials Arts (Muye 24-gi in Korean) refers to the 24 martial art techniques in the Muyedobotongji (Comprehensive Illustrated Manual of Martial Arts). The manual was compiled in 1790 by Confucian scholars Lee Deok-mu and Park Jae-ga, along with the martial arts expert Baek Dong-su, under the orders of King Jeongjo (22nd ruler of the Joseon dynasty). Regarded as a resource for understanding the nature of Korean military science, the manual is an exemplary martial arts compilation that was organized into 24 techniques by adopting the traditional martial arts of Joseon, as well as China and Japan.

The 24 Martial Arts were practiced by the soldiers of the outer military unit of Jangyongyeong, the most elite military troop during the Joseon dynasty. Soldiers stationed at the northern and southern military camps of the Hwaseong Temporary Palace practiced these techniques to effectively guard the palace. It is considered as a significant intangible heritage because of its great historical, artistic, and athletic values. With the restoration of the temporary palace, a regular event is being held to demonstrate the 24 Martial Arts.
