Korea Hapkido Federation-USA First Annual Seminar
Korea Hapkido Federation-USA (KHF) Annual Seminar is a tremendous international success!
Bringing Hapkidoans and Martial Artists back together from all around the world!
The Korea Hapkido Federation-USA Branch held the first annual seminar October 16-18, 2015 at the KHF-USA branch headquarters in Wentzville, Missouri. This was the first of many official seminars at the USA Branch HQ as well as throughout the United States. Grandmaster Michael Rhoades, U.S.A. Director for The Korea Hapkido Federation-U.S.A. Branch, along with Grandmaster Kim Myung Yong, Founder of Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido hosted students from all around the globe!
The KHF-USA would like to thank KHF Worldwide President GM Oh, Se Lim and General Director GM Bae, Sung Book for their support of the KHF-USA branch. The KHF-USA would also like to thank Grandmaster Kim Myung Yong and Grandmaster Michael Rhoades for sharing their knowledge and skills with Masters and Instructors from all over the world at the event. Grandmaster Kim shared his experience through the past seven decades with the students on the floor. His amazing ability to communicate bridged the multiple languages ‘barriers’ that were in attendance. Grandmaster Rhoades’ teaching skills and abilities set the standard! Explanation and demonstration of the techniques were quickly grasped by the students. The open-mindedness of the Hapkido instructors and students made this learning experience incomparable to any other method of instruction.
The Masters and Instructors who participated were highly motivated and true professionals who were eager to learn and grow.
Masters and Instructors from Russia, Chile, Mexico and all across the United States could be found on the training floor. Family was reunited and the shared love for Hapkido was brought together. This highly anticipated, much discussed event incorporated an unbelievable cultural opportunity for Hapkidoans to train together and come together as the family that the art of Hapkido is famous for.
A very special thank you to Master Dmitry Lozhensky for traveling from Russia to support our event and we have signed an agreement of co-operation between KHF-Russia and the KHF-USA branch. Additionally, Master Lozhensky filmed GM Rhoades performing firearm extractions, knife disarms and roping/arresting techniques. This filmography will be shown on Russian television.
Master Tracy Green was honored by being named the Secretary of the KHF-USA. Master Kyle Ament was presented his appointment as the North Central USA Director and Master Benjamin Carrasco was officially appointed as the South Central USA Director.
The KHF is uniting and growing with Hapkido professionals across the USA. As John Maxwell Team Member, Chris Robinson said during his speech at the training event for those who were there to kick off the KHF-USA seminar, “I was in the room!” is something that will created a lifelong memory for the attendees of this event.
Martial Art Instructors can host seminars at their locations. If you are a Hapkido practitioner and looking for a home where you and your students can learn and grow without politics, look no further… koreahapkidofederation.net Hap Ki!
