Hapkido is a kind of Korean martial art that primarily focuses on defence, instead of offence, and is made to neutralize an opponent using certain techniques. It is also designed to clear and calm people’s spirit, and those that practice it are trying also to develop themselves in different areas. While not as practised as some other martial arts, this form is becoming increasingly popular in the West.
If you haven’t practiced any form of martial art before, the first time can be a bit scary. First of all, as you don’t know what to expect. Second, you might be afraid of getting hurt as some martial arts appear somewhat aggressive, especially to a beginner. However, once you get over the first hump, you will realize that enrolling in a martial arts school is one of the greatest things you have done for yourself.
