The Kobukson, also known as the turtle ship was a large Korean warship that was used by the Royal Korean Navy during the Joseon dynasty, 15th century and 18th century. The Kobukson was used in the fight against the invading Japanese and is said to be the precursor of the present day submarine. The name “turtle ship” derives from its protective shell-like covering and is often recognised as the first armoured battleship in the world.
Turtle ships were equipped with at least five different types of cannons. Their most distinguishable feature was a fierce fire breathing dragon-shaped head at the front of the ship that could launch cannon fire or flames from the mouth. Each ship had a shell-like covered deck to protect against arrow fire, musket shots, incendiary weapons. The covered deck also had iron spikes to prevent the enemy from attempting to board the ship.
Below is a fantastic video all about The Kobukson and is well worth a watch.
If you are interested in the history of Tae Kwon Do, General Choi, Korean history or martial arts in general then this book is a great read.
Writen by Alex Gillis a investigative journalist who has trained in Tae Kwon Do for over 25 years, this book looks into the history and tales around Tae Kwon Do and how it all started.
Sometimes I find people do the minimum theory for gradings and that’s it, it’s a real shame because the story of Tae Kwon Do is very interesting.

“Obscure documents, Korean-language books, and in-depth interviews with tae kwon do pioneers tell the tale of the origin of the most popular martial art. In 1938, tae kwon do began at the end of a poker game in a tiny village in a remote corner of what is now North Korea by Choi Hong-Hi, who began the martial art, and his nemesis, Kim Un-Yong, who developed the Olympic style and became one of the most powerful, controversial men in sports. The story follows Choi from the 1938 poker game where he fought for his life, through high-class geisha houses where the art was named, and into the Vietnam War where the martial art evolved into a killing art. The techniques cut across all realms—from the late 1960s when tae kwon do–trained Korean CIA agents kidnapped people in the United States and Europe to the 1970s when Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris, and other Hollywood stars mastered the art’s new kicks. Tae kwon do is also a martial art for the 21st century, one of merciless techniques, indomitable men, and justice pumped on steroids.”
