Hapkido is a unique form of self-defense that uses various kicks, punches, joint locks, throwing techniques and grappling techniques.
Hapkido emphasizes circular motion, redirection of force, and control of the attacker. Student will be taught proper footwork, and body positioning to gain leverage, and avoid the use of strength against strength with an opposing attacker. Hapkido is ideal for women, teens, and even the elderly.
Basic levels are taught proper footwork, kicks, punches, hand strikes, pressure points, and joint manipulation. Adults are taught the how to use weapons such as a knife, sword, rope, short stick, and canes for self-defense.
As students continue in the program, their knowledge will expand upon the basics with additional skills, and more elaborate self defense tactics.
