“As a senior Grand Master in the Hapkido community I must say that it is about time we took a stand against people like this Hapkido Brothers school in Clermont, Florida. We have a moral responsibility to expose people like Billy Burchett to protect the unknowing general public from the fraud that he commits. I applaud your for this post and am thankful for the magazine article about him as well. Grand Master Gregory Glover and myself will be recording a radio show about Billy Burchett this weekend to air July 4th 2010 on http://www.actionradio.net and http://www.martialartsentertainmentradio.com .

Yours in Hapkido,

Hapkido Rank Requirements to 1st Guep

May 21, 2010

I have posted this rank requirements outline from the Korean Hapkido Federation so that people can get a better understanding of what they should be learning at each rank on the way to black belt. These are the minimum requirements that are taught at Hapkido schools in Korea. I hope that you find the outline useful. This outline is used by more than 70 styles of Hapkido in Korea. So even if the individual techniques are different the order of teaching is the same that way people can continue to progress in rank even if they change styles in Korea. If you are looking for a great Hapkido school that teaches the Korean standards visit www.haemukwan.com .

To your success,

Richard Hackworth
