Welcome to the new wave in Korean Martial Arts.

Just as the sun rising over the horizon denotes the coming of a new day. So it is with the martial arts of "The Land Of Morning Calm". Inevitably, as the new rays of light pierce through and take over the darkness that once preceded in the night, so the "rays of modern-progressive-knowledge" will enlighten those with an open mind, and a hungry heart. Such is the martial art of:

De Alba System - Modern Farang Mu Sul®

The dawn of a new era has arrived. Finally, true balanced and comprehensive training is available. Not merely in words, but in actions.


Using over 40 years of Martial Arts experience, this art was developed by Grand Master Michael De Alba. Although his focus has been in Korean systems, this art reflects numerous influences from a wide variety of styles in Grand Master De Alba's background. This system was developed to achieve two main purposes:

It has evolved into what we believe to be one of the most comprehensive, progressive, and effective Martial Arts that exists today.

We are not implying that this system it is the end all, be all –

It will always be the individual that makes the art, not the other way around.

This philosophy is placed into action by both taking an honest evaluation of the martial arts, in regards to what is functional in and pertinent to today’s world and by honestly, freely expressing ourselves in the sense of being a True Warrior and all that this entails. This philosophy can and must co-exist within the framework of gritty "Traditional Principles" and Modern Training as well as Progressive Thinking. Without loosing sight of where we came from, we owe it to ourselves as well as our predecessors to move forward to the NEXT LEVEL.
