Hapkido is the Korean Art of self-defense. What distinguishes Hapkido from other traditional martial art styles is that Hapkido is both an Art of Self-Defense and an Art of Discipline. Hapkido primarily emphasizes the subduing of an opponent with minimal strength. Traditional martial art techniques; kicks, punches, forms and blocks are taught including Stranger Danger for children and Safety Protocol for use of self-defense for adults.
