Tukong Moosul meaning literally "Special Forces Martial Art" officially began as the self-defense system of the South Korean Special Forces. It is widely used by South Korean special warfare units, such as the elite 707 Special Mission Battalion. The roots of Tukong run much deeper, its origins can be traced back many generations, to the Dae Yeon Sa Temple in South Korea.

The martial artist practicing Tukong Moosul is trained in four areas, based upon the distance theory. The four areas include Throwing (leverage techniques), Punching (hand techniques), Kicking (foot techniques), and Weapons (extended body techniques).
The Dae Yeon Sa Temple has origins as early as 1200 CE. Dae Yeon Am, meaning "Great Achievement Place," was the predecessor to Dae Yeon Sa. Founded by Ji Suk and two other masters in North Korea, they practiced Buddhism without the Martial Arts. The arrival of Song Jae and Bup Kwang at the temple marked the establishment of Martial Arts at the temple around 1269 CE.

Around 1692, the temple was moved to South Korea and the name was changed from Dae Yeon Am to Dae Yeon Sa ("Great Achievement Temple"). From this point, three masters from China joined and continued to develop the Martial Arts being practiced at the temple. This explains why Tukong Moosul exhibits both hard and a soft styles (or external and internal styles). Strong undertones relating to Chinese Tai Chi were incorporated, and the internal form of Tukong Moosul known as Ip Sun was created, analogous to Chinese Tai Chi.

In Korea there are two types of Buddhist temples. One is similar to a church of missionary work and is open to all people. The other is solely for individuals who wish to seek self-enlightenment. These temples are ones of sanctuary and privacy, and are not open for public visitation. A few of the temples in Korea are of the later type. The Dae Yeon Sa Temple is a very traditional temple that teaches Buddhism and Martial Arts. This is the tradition that is taught to the students of Tukong Moosul today.
