CONFERENCE & HOTEL INFORMATION: Conference location & Hotel info

On May 4th-6th 2012, the World Hapkido Federation (WHF), in collaboration with the Greek Hapkido Association (GHA), will host this year's International WHF Seminar & Conference in Athens, Greece.  

Hapkido - is considered the patriarch of martial arts: with its emphasis on philosophy, technically incorporating joint locks, striking, kicking, throwing, choking, and weapons.  The result is the dynamic expression of power Ki, through the means of the human body.

The WHF was formed by Grandmaster Kwang Sik Myung in 1973, on his journey from war torn Korea to the western world.  His vision was to teach and spread Hapkido, in its purest form, to all people and creeds.  His life-long legacy of seminars continues this May with the teaching of Master Timothy Shin (7° Black Belt, WHF Technical Director), and Master Jason Mix (6° Black Belt, WHF Regional Director - West USA).

Master Shin is the current Technical Director of the WHF.  He was a personal student and assistant to Grandmaster Kwang Sik Myung for over two decades.  He will oversee the Black belt and instructor course of the seminar, as well as covering these topics: Basic & Attack technique, Throwing & Falling technique, and the Rope.

Master Mix is the WHF Regional Director of West Coast USA and Director of Program Development at ENSO Center in Redmond, Washington.  He is a senior member of the WHF, and will share and teach various technique and theory uncovered from the many discussions between himself and Grandmaster Kwang Sik Myung.  The CONNECTION: Ho Shin Sul • Middle Staff • 5 Elements will give a rare insight into the art of Hapkido and the WHF's founder.

The conference will be lead by Director General of the World Hapkido Federation, Master Roe Jai Myung.  As the son of the late Grandmaster, he will share the vision of the WHF's future as well as developments and projects that are underway. 

GHA president Evangelos Thanos, the members, and all the participants will have the joy of welcoming and practicing next to Hapkido masters from all over the world.

Attendees will receive certificates of participation and WHF collectibles. For more information and registrations you can visit http://worldhapkidofederation.com/ and www.hapkidogreece.com.
