I have been practicing martial arts with Grand Master J. R. West for 12 years and have loved every minute of it. This is a traditional Korean martial arts class with one hour of exercise and one hour of practice. Hapkido is a martial art that uses a combination of throws, joint twisting, kicks and other defensive techniques. The instructors are always helpful and everyone learns together. All you have to do is be willing to learn and come to class as often as you can.
