what is hapkido martial arts?

A traditional Korean martial art that has been handed down from generation to generation. What is HapKiDo? The meaning of HapKiDo translates to the way of coordinating one’s inner strength with their outer strength. This means that one’s Ki power comes from your inner strength. What’s great about HapKiDo is that you don’t have to be the strongest person in the room. Our martial art’s defensive techniques are based on circular motion instead of linear motion. These techniques are least likely to cause injury when learning, while being super effective against great force.

why do martial arts?

Martial Arts offers individuals a plethora of growing opportunities, and Choe’s HapKiDo classes help guide students to be well-rounded. It’s great for teaching kids respect, focus, and discipline; it increases teens’ self-respect and decreases time on the electronics; it helps adults to improve their focus and balance in life. But what we especially love about HapKiDo is that everyone of all ages, gender, and backgrounds can enjoy this martial art! Learning martial arts is more than just kicking, punching, and yelling. It’s a sport that helps students to become stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually.

what kind of premier martial arts classes does choe’s hapkido offer?

Martial Arts is an excellent way for kids to learn respect, discipline, focus, hard work, humility, perseverance, and confidence!

Kids are awesome! They show us time and time again how much potential they have when given guidance in a positive learning environment. If you have kids who struggle to sit still, to listen to directions, to speak up in class, to deal with bullies, and to make friends, Martial Arts classes will help them. Or maybe, your child is looking for a sport to enjoy or shows an interest in martial arts!

One of our greatest joys in teaching kids premium martial arts is that it’s something everyone can learn and grow in. Quiet kids become the loudest, high energy kids learn to channel their focus, a kid who struggles in sports improves his athletic abilities, an athletic child finds martial arts to help improve all around, and kids enjoy making friends. These are just some examples how martial arts impacts kids’ lives! Most importantly, Choe’s HapKiDo Martial Arts is a school where everyone enjoys aiming to become Black Belts together!

What’s also great is you become part of a community composed of instructors, students, parents, and more. Adult Martial Arts Classes are also a great way to spend quality time with your child and spouse. Overall, martial arts is a way to improve the quality of our lives and to increase enjoyment.
