The simple and honest determination to learn is all you need to learn at Hapkido CKA. There is no required purchase as we do not sell anything in that regard. Historically what you need to learn HAPKIDO is a master and your intention to learn.
The traditional uniform for the practice of Hapkido (Dobok) is required. It has three basic components; a traditional style wrap around tie top (jacket), pants and a belt; In our organization the official uniforms are provided as students sign in.
Hapkido is not a sport. It is a traditional martial art designed for personal defense so that each student fully develops the proper technique within the continuous practice and learning. In case you want to practice martial arts from the sporting, competitive point of view, there is a number of different disciplines to choose from; Judo , Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing, Jiu Jitsu, or Mixed Martial Arts. However many academies promote it as a sport but it is not ideal because it restricts the application of appropriate defense techniques proper to this art.
In our organization, the ideal is to begin the Hapkido formation from the age of 8, however before the growing demand of children who wish to enter the practice of Hapkido, CKA has developed special programs for younger children, from 4 to 7 years, in which psychomotricityplays a prominent role without focusing on the direct practice of Hapkido techniques.
Practicing our Hapkido line does not include teaching figures, there are some Hapkido organizations that do, but the CKA does not include them in our training program.
CKA as an organization is in charge of spreading Hapkido as a traditional martial art, and teaching the traditional weapons of this art: Long Staff, Medium staff, Short Staff, Curved cane, Sword, Belt, Rope and Knife, among others.
