    Dear HapKiDo Family Members:

    Welcome to the Korea HapKiDo Federation HaeMuKwan. I am pleased that you have decided to pursue the traditional martial art of HapKiDo and wish you the best in your endeavors.

    The Korea HapKiDo Federation HaeMuKwan was formed in 2000 because of the necessity of an association that not only emphasized HapKiDo technique, but the virtues of the art and the emphasis of personal development of the students as well. The Korea HapKiDo Federation HaeMuKwan’s wish for students and the members of this HapKiDo family is that they will not only grow in their HapKiDo technique, but also in their personal and spiritual lives. We are seeking to develop the body in conjunction with the mind and spirit. When one has good physical health, mental clarity and personal happiness you can be of benefit to your family, your country and the world around you.

    HaeMuKwan HapKiDo is not a sport. It has great practical benefits for fitness, self development and self-defense. As a classical martial art, HaeMuKwan HapKiDo’s purpose is to develop every aspect of the self, in order to create a mature person who totally integrates their intellect, body, emotions and spirit. If you are willing to dedicate yourself to the study of HaeMuKwan HapKiDo, you will reap the great physical, spiritual and mental benefits that are a part of its nature.

It really is a great family activity with unlimited benefits. Unlike little league sports or other youth activities this is something that parent and child can do together to strengthen the family bond. I highly recommend it to all families.” Dr. Ronald Stone, Amazon Best Selling Author
