World Boxing News finds out who the next opponent of Manny Pacquiao is, combat trainer and stunt coordinator DK Yoo.

DK Yoo’s reputation is growing as the founder of his Warfare Combat System.

DK Yoo, according to his website, has had various experiences in types of martial arts.

He says they include “boxing, Kung–Fu, Wushu, Judo, track, and field.

“The most important fact other than my experience in all types of martial arts is that I have met with the experts from each martial art, interacted and grasped the core of each martial art through analyzing the advantages and disadvantages.

“To test the movements, I have sparred with many people and have had combat experiences. These experiences and the research I have conducted led to what I am today.

On who inspires him, Yoo said: “There are several people who have inspired me. Some are martial artists, some are dancers, and some are painters. People from all fields gave me inspiration.

“If I had to pick one, I would pick General Yu Dayou from China’s Ming Dynasty. He was a martial artist, a soldier, a strategist, a poet, an inventor, a mechanical engineer, and a mathematician. He has given me a lot of inspiration. People who have been enlightened in one principle can reach high levels of achievement in other areas as well.

“Yu Dayou is a great example of this.


“I will not stop continuously enhancing my movements. All living things die when they are not moving, which is why there are diverse movements in my YouTube videos. I enjoy it very much.”

Discussing his artform, Yoo stated: “I never compare nor single out any particular martial art as the best or the most powerful. I respect all movements and all martial arts. WCS is just the result of my own studies and research.

“It gathers my experiences and thoughts under this philosophy. If my martial arts and philosophy can help many to obtain the freedom of movement and mind, even in some small way, I would be deeply satisfied. This is all I wish.

“To reiterate, I don’t believe WCS to be superior to any other movement or philosophy. All movements and philosophies are valuable within themselves.

“WCS is just one tool that helps people to achieve freedom of movement and mind. There is no absolute superiority.
