You may be wondering What is Hapkido? It is the Korean military art of self defense. This style of martial arts dates back several centuries. Throughout the history of this country, Korea had to repel invaders from the north, south, east, and west. All attackers brought their distinct styles of combat and weaponry. The battles took place on different terrain, during freezing winters and
sweltering summer heat alike, with the Koreans often greatly outnumbered by the enemy forces. As a result of these factors, the Korean warriors acquired a style that combined strong spirit with extremely effective self protection techniques. These tactics that were at the same time practical, deadly, and effective against any type of enemy under any circumstances. The style was natural and free while having no strict rules, rigid structure or limitations .

Hapkido is designed to be highly adaptive and practical, training using technique drills and footwork instead of set forms.

Real Korean Hapkido focuses mainly on controlling the six body levers (elbows, neck, knees, waist, ankles, and shoulders) through pressure point application, striking and weapon applications.

The techniques of Hapkido were practed by the King’s Royal Guards in the past and by the Korean Presidential Body Guards of today. In 1969 Hapkido became the official martial art of the US Secret Service and over the years has spread to other government agencies.

Hapkido is the official martial art of the US Secret Service, FBI, CIA, DEA, Special Military and Police Unites featuring flowing, relaxed, yet powerful movements.
