This research reaffirms the connectivity and authenticity of original martial arts within China, Korea and Japan through comparison and analysis of Subak․Sangbak․Gakjeo. Firstly, the ancient Korean martial arts shows strong resemblance to the ancient wall-drawings of China and Japan in warriors gestures and combat exercises. Secondly, we proved that there were sufficient ancient documents which support that combat martial art was originated from real-life combat exercise of Korea․China․Japan. Thirdly, we could find there were physical exercise methods which were all shown equally on Korean ancient wall drawings and Wooden drawings of China as well as in Hayan in Japan. Fourthly, Korea․China․Japan had used the terms Subak and Sangbak․Gakjeo interchangeably during some periods for slightly varying things; however, we have found that they were used once under same meaning. Fifth, the meaning of “Sangbak” in context of 《NanjungIlgi》ㆍ《SangbakYiSoo》ㆍ《NiHonShowKi》 shows that it was similar to grappling techniques with punching and kicking instead of Gakjeo and Gakryuk which modern academic believe to be the meaning over SSireum. Sixth, late Cho Seon Dynasty and Myung Dynasty(and according period in Japanese edo era) seems to be the era at which combat battle was diversified into hand-combat and weaponries. Seventh, Subak․Sangbak․Gakjeo shows it was mixed martial art, but then it was changed into push-over or throw-over combat of mid-era of Sangbak․Gakjeo. The research overall reaffirms that there are strong connections among the Combat martial arts of Korea, China and Japan.
