Pyongyang, November 3 (KCNA) — The illustrated manual of Korean martial arts “Mu Ye Do Bo Tong Ji” was recently registered to the memory of the World Register by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

In this regard, Kim Yong Ae, section chief of the Grand People’s Study House in the DPRK, told KCNA:
The manual unearthed in Sonchon County of North Phyongan Province is a military book dealing with the Korean martial art movements in a comprehensive and systematic way.
