Jang Mu Won Hapkido is a traditional Korean martial art that was founded by Grandmaster Chong Sung Kim in 1960 and brought to the United States in 1973.  Jang Mu Won is a refined and diverse form of Hapkido, emphasizing defensive hand and foot strikes, throws, joint locks and includes the use of traditional Korean Weaponry.  Grandmaster Kim has developed a comprehensive system of self-defense from thousands of techniques learned over several decades.  His dynamic version of traditional Hapkido is ideal for students of all ages and levels of experience in martial arts.  Students benefit not only physically, but are simultaneously enriched by the philosophical principles that form the basis of this unique art.  Three principles, water, circle, and harmony, are emphasized throughout training. From beginner to advanced levels, these three principles guide a student’s study of Hapkido techniques.
