Intermediate Hapkido Curriculum

1st Quarter / December – February

Three Major Contributors to Hapkido are Sokaku Takeda, Yong Sool Choi, & Ji Han Jae.

Sokaku Takeda (10/10/1859 – 04/25/1943) was born in Japan and mastered many different martial arts during his life including sword, Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu, spear, staff, stick, shuriken, and others as well as an extremely accomplished Sumo wrestler. He founded the art of Daito-ryu aiki-jujutsu and has direct ties and influences on Ueshiba Morihei (1883-1969 founder of Aikido), Okuyama Yoshiji (1901-1987 founder of Hakko Ryu Jujutsu), Yong Sool Choi (1904-1986 founder of Hapkido), and Nakano Michiomi (1911-1980 founder of Nippon Shorinji Kempo)
