How is Jin Pal Hapkido different from other martial arts?
martial art has its benefits and offer something different depending
on the individual’s interests. Some martial arts,
like Taekwondo, focus on kicking and striking techniques
with an emphasis on tournament sparring. Other martial arts, like
Jujitsu, focus on throwing and grappling techniques also
often with an emphasis on competitions. Then there are arts, like
Kung Fu, that
teach very dynamic forms and weapons training. Most of us
know about Boxing and Kickboxing, which can be very effective fighting
There are even hybrid martial arts, like Tae Bo, that incorporate
elements of the martial arts into an aerobic work-out.
beauty of Jin Pal Hapkido is that it is a very comprehensive martial
that can adapt itself to the individual depending on the
interests and abilities. We practice a wide range of self-defense
techniques that can be effective in multiple situations. For example,
we practice techniques for attacks from grabs, punches, kicks, weapons
and even multiple attackers. There are also many strikes and kicks,
including high kicks and flying kicks as well as low kicks and sweep
kicks. Our classes are fast paced and offer a great way to get in
shape and stay that way. Of course, the biggest benefit of Jin Pal
Hapkido is the highly qualified masters and instructors who will
be guiding you along the way.
