シルム院院長 バクスンハン

Ssireum is a traditional national sport and one of the invaluable cultural inheritances that represents Korea. Korean Ssireum Association has been working hard to revitalize ssireum, however, there is still much to be desired. People’s interest in ssireum has been going down and it is pointed out that this is because of social environment change, lack of scientific research, and shortage of training professionals. Therefore, in order to promote ssireum, Korean Ssireum Association joined forces with Yeoungnam University and KSART was launched.

The purpose of KSART is to promote and maintain research and educational functions within the ssireum world. There will be classes for the public, programs for foreigners, and developing teaching materials, etc. Through this we hope to nurture excellent coaches, athletes, and referees, and to promote and encourage ssireum not only in Korea but around the world.

We ask for your continuous interest and participation.
Thank you.



Sung Han Park, Ph.D.
The director of Korea Ssireum Association Research and Training Institute(KSART).
