WHAT IS HAPKIDO? 

Literally, the term Hapkido is derived from three Korean words:

Hap: the coordination of mind & body.

Ki: the inner energy that is created and manifested through “Hap”.

Do: the self-controlled and disciplined life necessary to create “Hap” and “Ki”.

Hapkido is a complete martial art style that utilizes kicks, punches, pressure point techniques, throws, joint locks and ki development to prepare the practitioner for personal protection.

While other martial arts are considered “hard style” mostly relying on physical power and are offense oriented. Hapkido is “soft style” and defensive in its approach, emphasizing throws, twists, joint locks and pressure point techniques to defend yourself.

Hapkido emphasizes self-discipline and personal development, to build defensive skill sets and confidence in the practitioner.

 In order to defend against attacks, Hapkido teaches corresponding offensive techniques. For instance, before teaching defense against kicks and punches, kicks and punches are taught.

Hapkido techniques are the perfect self-defense tool as the techniques minimize injuries to an assailant. They are designed to completely subdue an opponent but can be easily elevated to a more serious level if the threat posed is grave in nature.

Mastering Hapkido, or simply learning to fall properly or perform a new kick or self defense technique, is not only about body awareness and physical technique, it is the first and most important step to give you confidence and a skill set that one can utilize if faced with a threat of harm to you or your family.
