Martial Arts Program
Hap Ki Do is a Korean Martial Art. Hap Ki Do means the Way of Harmony and Coordination. In Hap Ki Do the practitioner uses their opponent’s strength against them. It is a mix of Tae Kwon Do, Judo and Aikido. It utilizes kicks, throws and joint locks.
A typical Hap Ki Do class consists of warm ups and stretching. This is followed by a period of break falls and rolls. Learning how to fall properly is very beneficial and helps prevent injury. Next is the practice of kicks. The final part of class is usually used for partner practice. You will usually learn hand techniques but there are also sword and short staff techniques.
