HanMuDo: Juniors & Adults
What is HanMuDo? HanMuDo translates to the way of Korean Martial Arts; Hapkido translates into the way of coordinated strength and harmony. Sometimes it is referred to as the way of coordinated power. HanMuDo/Hapkido is a comprehensive martial arts system comprised of the study of empty hand techniques, the study of weapons, the study of Ki, and the study of martial arts philosophy.
HanMuDo was created by Dr. He-Young Kimm; Hapkido was created by Master Choi, Yong-Sul; however, Master Ji, Han-Jae is credited with giving the art the name of Hapkido.
HanMuDo is a self defense system designed for worst case scenarios, when escaping from the situation may not be a viable option. All tactics in HanMuDo/Hapkido are combat proven as they are taught to the S. Korean military special forces.
HanMuDo is taught to civilians, law enforcement and many other professionals across the country. Individuals from doctors to chiefs of police and defensive tactics instructors train in Korean HanMuDo.
Just about anyone can do it, regardless of strength, size, or physical fitness. You'll get in great shape, have an absolute blast and get the kind of confidence that that comes from knowing you can handle whatever situation you might encounter. It's confidence that comes out not only in physically threatening situations (which will hopefully never occur) but also in your daily life.

HanMuDo is all meat - no fat. By limiting the variety of combat strategies, your learning time is accelerated and your depth of understanding and skill level are increased. You become adept at quickly reacting to attacks and, if necessary, improvising to achieve your desired result.
The HanMuDo system at our school is divided into four major divisions for balance.
Yuh Kwon Sul- Study of Empty Hand Techniques; these techniques encompass basic kicking and striking, joint manipulation, sweeps and throws, and defense against multiple attackers.
Mu Ki Sul- Study of Weapon Techniques; Students are exposed to a number of martial arts weaponry through the course of their training. Students begin training with offensive weapons such as staff and sword. As well, defensive weapons are learned such as the rope, cane, and the fan. Finally, defense against modern street weapons such as clubs, knives, and handgun are taught to all students regardless of rank
Son Do Sul- Study of Ki; Students learn eternal energy such as breathing exercises that stimulate the flow of Ki through the body. Later students learn to accumulate and circulate Ki through the body.
Han Chul Hak- Study of Philosophy; Hapkido philosophy is divided into three fundamental concepts: Harmony Theory, Water Theory, and Circle Theory
We stress traditional training with modern day applications in our men, women, teen and childrens' training programs so as to fit 21st century needs such as fitness and standing self defense techniques. Our classes are separated into adult, teen, and children only classes to ensure hard training for each martial artists cognitive and physical skill level.
