On May 17th, Master “Major” Kim participated as a guest instructor in the 2nd annual Hapkido Seminar held in Geneva, IL, nearby Chicago. This seminar allowed Hapkido students from around the country to gather and learn from instructors such as Grandmaster Chu Seup Ma and Grandmaster Suk K. Kim. Students had the chance to work one on one with Master “Major” Kim on various defense techniques. Master Kim showed students some of the Korean Special Force exercises, and demonstrated Hapkido knife defense skills and vital point (pressure point) attacks. You can find a few of the techniques Master Kim demonstarted on the current 9thDan.com Video Page.
Upcoming Hapkido DVD
Speaking of videos, we are currently working with Master Kim on a DVD that will showcase a wide range of Hapkido hand to hand skills. This DVD will focus on defense techniques in the areas of punch, grip, throw, and knife defense. We expect to release this DVD later this summer. Stay tuned.
