    How many are Hapkidoists?

    We don't see much activity in the Hapkido thread. I was just wondering how many consider themselves Hapkidoists (or Hapkidoin if you prefer). Are you belted? Do you still study? In my case I attained a 2nd Degree black belt in 1987. I have trained to 3rd, but never tested. I study on my...

    A short reflection on 7 Dec 41

    Tomorrow is of course 7 Dec 16. For some of you it is probably already 7 Dec 16. For those of us in the USA, 7 Dec 41 was a "Day of Infamy." The USA was the victim of a surprise attack on 7 Dec 41, that damaged or destroyed a great deal of the military sea power we thought of as nearly...

    Photography of old England

    Captured camera goes back to where it was

    Not MA or MT related, but it seems not necessary in this forum. I thought it was interesting. This link came from RFF. BBC News - WWII German camera captures Nazi troops at rest and tells of a Royal Marine who during an operation in WWII found a camera and not only kept if, but used it. Then...

    Why do you come to the Hapkido Forum?

    I see people visiting the Hapkido forum every time I come into the Korean Martial Arts area. What I almost never see is someone posting in the Hapkido forum. Are there Hapkido practitioners who just don't find anything of interest? Please start a thread on something that interests you...

    Soong Moo Kwan Hapkido

    Don't see too much mention of what style people in the Hapkido forum learned under. It isn't perhaps all that important anyway. The different styles share many of their techniques. Still, I was wondering if there are any others here who studied Soong Moo Kwan Hapkido, either in Korea, under...
