Opening of ICM new building


The ‘International Centre of Martial Arts for Youth Development and Engagement under the auspices of UNESCO (UNESCO ICM, or ICM)’ was established in December 2016 upon an Agreement between the government of the Korea and UNESCO. Since its establishment ICM has been operating diverse projects such as martial arts research, education, and exchange that contribute to the realization of UN and UNESCO goals through martial arts. The new building, as a centre for martial arts is, as its name, home to not only ICM, but also the WoMAU (World Martial Arts Union), KMAF (Korea Martial Arts Federation), WMC(World Martial Arts Masterships Committee), and the Korea Taekgyeon Association, etc. Additionally, if a stadium exclusive for traditional martial arts is established in the future, the World Martial Arts Park will become the center of world martial arts.
