Northern NSW Hapkido – Workshop Weekend – Sat 26 & Sun 27 Sep 2015

The Northern NSW Hapkido clubs hosted a weekend of Hapkido Workshops on the last weekend of September 2015. The workshops were held in Murwillumbah. The guest instructor was Daniel Marie from Sydney. Hapkido students from Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Murwillumbah and Stokers Siding participated in this series of workshops. This weekend was an opportunity for students to revise the basic principles of Hapkido that underpin all techniques and to learn loads of new stuff. This is what was covered in the series of workshops over the weekend.

New video to help promote our Hapkido

Thanks also to Sam Dunworth (budding film maker) and the instructors and students who helped with the video for all the time and effort to produce this video.

Take a look – you will probably see yourself somewhere in the video. Share it with your friends and family so they know why you are away a couple of times a … Continue reading
