   Asian Letters of Kukkiwon
- 國技院 -
is the answer.
"Ki"(技) has same prononciation of Ki(氣), but different letter.
Won has broad meaning actually.
Sometimes it refers to institute in some context, and sometimes it just refers to a house.
Thanks.




>Could you explain the Sino-Korean (한자) of "Kukkiwon"...or more precisely, the "ki" and/or "won."

>I was asked the same thing by my students, so I consulted a Korean-Chinese dictionary (Sino-Korean dictionary because on our dan certs. (단증) the stamp's have the Kukkiwon's (도장) in han-ja).

>True, "kuk/gook" means nation but I am a bit confused about "won."  In general, 'won' is a suffix that means 'institute,' but in the dictionary is shows "house for learning/foundation."  Fair enough, I can see 'institute' being associated.

>However, isn't the "ki" (using han-ja) in reference to 'energy?'  Like what westerners and Chinese call "Chi?"

>I know this is not really important, but I get asked this somewhat often...but I am not fluent in translating Sino-Korean (한자) into Korean, then into English.
