They become calmer and more confident which leads to competency and a feeling of self-worth.
What separates Jung Moo Hapkido from other martial arts, is the fact that it has no sport or tournament component. In a real self-defense situation there are no judges, buzzers or whistles to stop the action. There is no point system for kick, strike sparring, or time out, or tap out for submissions. You do not strike or kick to score a point. There are no forms, (Kata, Hyung or Poomse). Hapkido is a Martial Art of combat. Hapkido is a martial art that is designed to stop an attack as effectively and quickly as possible. Even against multiple attackers if needed. The Adult Martial Arts program at JMAFC will teach you effective self-defense.
Kum Do - Way of the Sword
The goal of Kumdo training is controlling the mind and body together. The curriculum of the JMAFC / SVK program is designed to progressively reduce the natural gap that exists between our mind and body. When we train, we are presented with physical movements that must be learned and performed with acute accuracy. Likewise, we are presented with the cognitive material that helps us learn, understand and perform the physical movements. In the beginning the gap between the two, (mental and physical), is great. As we progress through the curriculum, the gap between mind and body narrows. In Kumdo this begins to happen very quickly. The curriculum also encompasses the natural and moral philosophy of Kumdo.
