This modern style of Hapkido, known also as Chon Sul Kwan Hapkido, is a systematic approach to self defense was founded by Grandmaster Barry Rodemaker. Students will learn basic skills, and then build upon that foundation to more intricate skills. The system focuses on approximately 20 or so foundational skills and most every technique is built from those basics. Because of the nature of this style, it is for teens and adults, and is not suitable for children.

Hapkido is a Korean martial art which focuses solely on self defense. Hapkido was developed and first taught in Korea in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. It features joint locks, throws, holds, chokes, breaking techniques, as well as many strikes, kicks and blocks similar to those of Tae Kwon Do. Literally translated as “the way of coordinated power,” Hapkido teaches to blend with an attackers force rather than meet force on force.
