Pyongyang, September 27 (KCNA) -- A national classic "Mu Ye Do Bo Tong Ji" is a military book dealing in a comprehensive and systematic way with the martial art movements handed down in Korea for many years.

This block-printed manual was compiled on the instruction of the 22nd king of the Feudal Joson Dynasty, and published in April 1790.

It gives explanation of different hand martial arts, swordsmanship, spearsmanship, cudgelmanship, horsemanship and other Korean traditional martial art movements as well as some martial art movements of neighboring countries with illustrations drawn by Kim Hong Do, a famous artist in the period of the Feudal Joson Dynasty.

President Kim Il Sung personally attended a meeting of scientists in April Juche 41 (1952) when the Fatherland Liberation War was at its height and gave an instruction for collecting the historical documents, books and remains on a nationwide scale and putting them in order. And he took measures to collect the national classics by dispatching the relevant officials to various parts of the country.

As a result, the manual discovered in the area of Phyongan Province in 1952 was donated to the then National Central Library. It is now kept at the Grand People's Study House in Pyongyang.

"Mu Ye Do Bo Tong Ji" is of weighty significance in studying the root and history of Taekwon-Do and further developing the traditional martial arts created by the Korean nation.

The book was registered to the memory of the UNESCO World Regional Register for Asia-Pacific in 2016 and to the memory of the World Register by UNESCO in 2017.
