Welcome to Kim’s Hapkido!
At Kim’s Hapkido, we teach Jang Mu Won Hapkido which was founded by Grandmaster Chong Sung Kim. Jang Mu Hapkido emphasizes timing and precision in the execution of techniques with great devotion to detail. Grandmaster has often stated that the difference between mediocre technique and outstanding, effective technique is paper thin. Jang Mu Won Hapkido teaches techniques that are readily applied by students in any situation.
What Is Hapkido?
This unique style of martial arts was founded by Grandmaster Kim, and incorporates three principles into the physical and philosophical aspects of the art.
Junior Hapki (Ages 4-5)
Our youth program focuses on improving basic motor and listening skills of preschool-age children, which will help as they enter school and society.
Self Defense for Children (Ages 6-12)
Martial arts offer a safe and an exciting environment for children and will help shape their lives in a positive manner. Children learn the importance of self confidence, discipline and respect. We strive to teach our students to have a “never give up” attitude.
Adults (Ages 13 & Up)
Our teen and adult classes are offered for students who wish to learn how to defend yourself from an attacker or for those who want a great workout.
