Hapkido, known as the "Art of Coordinated Power", is a Way of Life, with the goal being Perfection of Character, attained through the coordination of Mind, Body, and Spirit, by practicing meditation, breath control (Ki exercises), and rigorous physical training.
Hapkido is a powerful and innovative martial art. Literally translated, the word Hap means “coordination” or "harmony”, Ki denotes the “essence of power”, and Do means “the art or "The Way".
Hapkido employs powerful kicking with pressure and vital point striking techniques from the unique Korean indigenous art of Tae Kyon and throwing and falling techniques with joint locks and attacks from Japanese Aiki Jujitsu. It is concise and practical, the result of a 1,300 year pursuit of the ultimate lifestyle.
The curriculum taught at Zen Hapkido has been handed down directly from the late Grand Master Bong Soo Han and the International Hapkido Federation.

Hapkido classes are rigorous and focus on both physical conditioning and learning new techniques. Class begins and ends with a meditation. After the meditation, the instructor will lead a warmup that involves stretching, core conditioning, and technique drills. Typically after the warm-up students break off into pairs or small groups to work on techniques for their belt test, but the instructor may choose to spend extra class time on specific kicks, techniques, rolls/falling, and conditioning. Devise at all times!
Monthly membership is $100, unlimited classes.
