taught by Ryan Ho

In this series, you will learn to protect yourself utilizing the five weapons you were born with (two arms, two legs, and head). These lessons will include a blend of styles, including two forms of Korean martial arts: Tae Kwon Do, and Hapkido. In these lessons, we will focus on real world application. Together, we will learn things like grabbing techniques, escape from an unwanted grab, and defense against someone bigger and/or stronger than you. Through this practice you will gain the confidence and self-esteem to be ready for this sometimes-dangerous society we live in.

Tae Kwon Do (TKD) means “the method of kicking and punching.” Hapkido (HKD) means “the method of gathering energy. The concepts of the two are complete opposites:

· TKD is a hard, forceful martial art where you’re often reacting before the attack.

· HKD is a soft martial art where you will learn how to outsmart the aggressor after they’ve grabbed you. The idea is to use their energy against them and put them in a position to prevent further attacks.

We will learn both concepts in our classes together.

Everyone is welcome to join. These methods can be used by all! Please wear athletic clothes for warm-ups and be sure to bring a long-sleeved shirt (we’ll use these when learning to escape certain grips, such as grabbing the sleeves). Note: nicer clothes can be ruined during practice.
