Intro to Martial Arts – Hapkido
August 24, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm PDT
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until September 7, 2021
Hapkido is a martial art that translates as a coordinated energy way or universal energy way. This soft style is a complete martial arts system. It integrates kicking, hand techniques, patterns (series of pre-arranged moves) and redirection of another’s force through circular movements leading to joint locks and throws. Some weapons practice, such as wooden sword and staff, are also included.
This program is designed to increase your physical health, flexibility, strength, and balance while improving confidence and encouraging a more peaceful mind. Hapkido is an excellent art for self-defense which focuses on physical and mental health while being in harmony with one’s environment. Students work alone and with partners on various skills. We practice the traditional “internal style” art of Hapkido, emphasizing fluid movement, and follow-through. Our style of Hapkido is Kiwon Hapkido.
