Is there such a thing?

I just watched the ending of a movie that i viewed as a kid. It is called "Remo Williams: The adventure Begins". It stars Fred Ward. Anyway, the old korean man teaches him an art called "Shinanju". Is this ficticious or real? Just curious.

Re: Is there such a thing?

A quick google search seemed to turn up links to gaming sites, so probably a made up thing.

Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.

It's made up, comes from a fiction paperback series. I collect them.

LOL ... I used to read the Remo Williams books years ago; I had forgotten all about them.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.
