    Define strong. Participation? Success in competions against other arts?

    With that said, personally, I think that Haidong Gumdo training is pretty good. Much of their techniques are based on test cutting, and superior to most of the current Japanese Kenjutsu schools that I'm familiar with.

    Before we begin...

    Disclaimer: This thread wasn't created to start controversy or the WWIII of flame wars. So if you have something nasty or cute you want to add, keep it to yourself. I just want some opiions and why you think so.

    So let me specify... strongest as in best hand to hand martial art for street combat.

    Hmm. Good question. I would say WOL-JEON, Chang. Since he became a pupil of I-dang Kim Eun-ho when he was 18 years old, he has devoted his whole life to the Korean painting. He is a great senior in that field who opened up a new path in the Korean painting by changing the style of traditional painting into a modern one.

    The fundamental factor of his artistic world is that he harmonizes ideally the high spirit of old scholars with his artistic sense and technique in an adequate form. He creates a marvelous intuitive world where the dynamic and the static are condensed together, through the simple composition of objects and blank space. In addition, he deals with the spiritual world of the old Korean paintings, but he avoids being immersed in idealism by choosing various objects from reality and contemporary social issues. In short, it can be said that he has solved the first subject of Korean painting, that is, the modernization of the traditional painting, in his own way.

    Then there is also Park Noh-soo. He won the Prize of the President at the 4th National Art Exhibition when he was 28 years old with the work called the portrait of <Sun So-woon>, which showed his original coloring skill and his usage of the beauty of blank space.

    He is reputed to have invented a new Korean painting, harmonizing the large scale of the Northern School of Chinese painting with the spirit of the Southern School of Chinese painting. Especially, his simple, decorative scene and the clean, pure color, which get along with the calculated, refined composition of space, put his work in the unique status among the Korean paintings. In addition the limpid, serene dignity permeated in his work shows the invaluably noble spirit of the artist.

    It's not the art, it's the fighter and how he trains.

    At this rate, you'll just keep excluding my entries until it comes down to TKD.
