Hapkido videos...

Every time I talk about Hapkido, I find myself having to search for the same videos on YouTube.  So for no better reason than convenience, I'm linking them up here so I can have quick access.  Hopefully you'll get a kick out of them too.


So this one is at our last location.  We've since moved.  My friend Garrick put this together from film he took at one of our grading events.  He has another one that you can look at here.

The next ones are basically a video portfolio put together by King Yeung, who is one of our instructor's oldest students. 

This one shows the distinctive link between Hapkido and Aiki-jujutsu.  I can't remember this Master's name, but I love watching this clip.


And this one is a great clip of the very first generation of students/Masters of Hapkido.  They don't make 'em like this anymore!

And last, but certainly not least:  Three clips of Master Hwang.  Though there's been some politics and attempts at misdirection on the internet over the years, East West Hapkido was formerly a branch of Eagle Hapkido, Master Hwang's own school.  Our "brand" of hapkido still bears remarkable resemblance to his style, even after a few years of independent evolution.

And there they are!  Hope you enjoyed them!
