Demonstrations of the traditional Korean martial art "Muye 24-ki" are taking place several days a week at Hwaseong Haenggung Palace in Suwon. Muye 24-ki is military art comprised of 24 skills. It was recorded in the “Muyedobotongji,” a comprehensive, illustrated manual of Korean martial arts written in 1790 and published by the Joseon army.
