World Ki Gong Club Image

The World Ki Gong Club (WKGC) was developed in response to the overwhelming acceptance of ancient Korean Ki Gong practice among members of the World Tang Soo Do Association (WTSDA.) Under the direction of Grandmaster Jae C. Shin there was new and renewed interest in Ki Gong exercises and principles. Due to the many requests for information about training protocols the World Ki Gong Club was formed. This natural interest continues today because one of the major purposes in the study of Tang Soo Do is the expansion of health and promotion of vitality.

Statement of Purpose

The World Ki Gong Club is a group composed primarily of members of the World Tang Soo Do Association and their families. We are dedicated to the development of Ki Gong in the world for the mutual benefit of all. We will promote the philosophical framework of Ki Gong practice and take responsibility for the propagation of seminars and training programs. We seek to open channels to reach advanced Masters in the field of Ki Gong and will assist in the training and teaching of the science, art and philosophy of Ki Gong. The WKGC will serve as a forum for the mutual exchange of information for all members. We share a responsibility to ask and answer questions related to Ki Gong training as well as ensure that all information is passed to all members of the club. We share a belief that our world not only needs but also deserves Ki Gong practice and that regular practice will create a healthier more vibrant society.

Ki Gong is a system of training designed to develop the mind, body, and spirit. The easy to follow physical exercises focus on Meridian, Circulatory, Respiratory, and Ki-Energy systems of the body. Ki Gong provides all the benefits of yoga, Tai-Chi, and meditation in one discipline. As you proceed through our program, you will advance through different levels of physical exercise, accessing Ki-Energy and circulation. The goal of each step is to help you achieve greater levels of health, mental and physical energy. The purpose of Ki Gong is to give individuals the opportunity to realize their own personal power by stimulating the Ki-Energy circulation activating the body's natural healing power. This is an enriching experience, irrespective of age, or physical ability. With regular practice of the Ki Gong, it is possible to keep blood and energy circulation flowing smoothly throughout the entire body. This will enable you to relax more easily and bring a feeling of peace, joy and a positive attitude.

Ki Gong is a system of training which incorporates physical and mental exercises with meditation. It is also known as "qigong" or "chi gung". The "Ki" in Ki Gong refers to energy or life force. It may be pronounced as "Key" or "Chee". "Gong" refers to a discipline or mastery. In essence, it is the practice of mastering ones own internal energy in relation to ones environment.


Ki is a natural, vital, universal life energy that flows within, through, around and between all living things in the cosmos. It cannot be seen or touched. Ki flexes, bends and manipulates itself through and around all so that it is in constant balance. It is a transcendental energy that vitalizes human life.


Ki Gong training is simple and fun yet extremely effective in producing positive results. For thousands of years, it was the foundation and essence of the Oriental healing arts. Herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage therapy, tai chi and yoga utilize the same underlying principles as Ki Gong and have developed similar techniques in various cultures. Today, Western medicine has begun to research this ancient ki theory. It has become popular in medical centers that previously denied the existence of Ki. The practice of energy exercise is now common in healing centers throughout the Western world. Millions of people practice Ki Gong as a part of their daily routine for health preservation and maintenance.


Yes, as long as you are willing to try you can learn simple exercises. It is suggested that these exercises be performed in a standing position. However, to current health conditions may require that they be performed in a sitting position. These exercises can be practiced at your studio or home.
