About Joseph

Hapkido is the art of coordinated power. It is a rare Korean martial art which uses the body's natural weight and energy in small circular motions to counter and overthrow the opponent quickly by using strikes, kicks, and joint-locks. I practiced everyday for the last twelve years and I have been working with children and adults for 10 years. Hapkido imparts flexibility, strength, and adaptability of mind and body. A Hapkido student deals with any situation as if it were a fight, where winning means not fighting at all.

Students practice together with each other in order to experience the differences between body types (one on one private classes are also available). The first class consists of a thorough body warm up, followed by deep breathing exercises (for ki development), the rest of the time is spent practicing a variety of techniques with a partner, and kicking and striking targets and in the air.

Consistent practice and repetition of the basic principles is the only way to refine the intricate movements required for the the true mastery of this Art. The belt rank system was developed to keep track of a student's understanding and execution of techniques proper to their level, it also creates a sense of brotherhood and responsibility among junior and senior students.
