2014 Hapkido National Seminar
Over the weekend October 4th and 5th we are hosting our National Seminar.
Our guest instructor for the 2014 seminar is Grand Master Scott Seo from Seoul, South Korea. Grand Master Scott is the eldest son of our chief instructor Grand Master In Sun Seo and who runs the Head Quarters Do Jang for our parent association, the World Kido Federation/Hanminjok Hapkido Association based in Seoul but with wide membership throughout the world.
Saturday and Sunday
0900: Hapkido Juniors (aged 7 to 12).
1030: Welcome and Warm Up.
1100 – 1300: General overview of hosinsul (self- defence) techniques. Advanced techniques (e.g. escort techniques, palm strikes, short sticks, rope techniques, pressure point) and theory, application, and training methods for Hapkido.
1300 – 1400: Lunch.
1400 – 1700: General overview of hosinsul (self- defence) techniques. Advanced techniques (e.g. escort techniques, palm strikes, short sticks, rope techniques, and pressure points) and theory, application, and training methods for Hapkido (continued).
1800 – Members Social and Dinner (Saturday only).
Saturday’s training is more for New Zealand Hapkido Federation students and is slanted towards our syllabus. Sunday’s training covers the same format as Saturday (without the evening function) so NZ Hapkido students get the chance to revise and expand on the material presented on Saturday. However, Sunday’s program will also have more of a general martial arts slant so martial artist from other styles can benefit as well. Martial artists from other styles are welcome to come along on both days though.
