    World Hapkido Federation

    Hello.

    Does anyone have information on the World Hapkido Federation. They teach the style Yon Moo Kwan. URL: http://www.worldhapkidofederation.com

    Are WHF represented in Scandinavia? Do they teach real Hapkido?

    Best regards

    John

    Hi, John:
    I can give you a little information if it will help. YON MU KWAN (Lit: "martial striving group") was organized by KJN Myung Kwang Sik when he first came to the States in 1973. It is a not-for-profit entity, as are most kwans, that sought to promote Hapkido after the vein of JI Han Jae. Issues arose when it became apparent that most Westerners could not appreciate the voluntary nature of the kwan institution. At that point the kwan was reorganized as the for-profit World Hapkido Federation.

    If its any help, the WHF is a broader, more all-encompassing organization which accepts a pretty broad range of Hapkido practitioners. Within the WHF are still groups which promote only the original material laid out by KJN Myung when he first came to the States. Is this the kind of information that you were looking for? Thoughts?

    Best Wishes,

    Bruce

    Aren't they connected to the Pro Hapkido movement?

    No, this is some local thing. The World Hapkido Association does Pro Hapkido.
