HAPKIDO ADULT PROGRAM

The essence of Hapkido lies in the cultivation of Ki energy and the utilization of this energy in the expression of martial arts. The name “HapKiDo”consists of the Korean characters meaning “the way of coordinating energy” or “power in harmony with nature and man”. It is a martial art practiced entirely for self-defense. HapKiDo is distinguished by three essential techniques:

  1. Passivity when opposing force
  2. Countering and attacking with circular movements
  3. Absolute penetration of an opponent’s defense (the water principle)
