The International Hapkido Alliance is dedicated to the propagation and standardisation of Hapkido along with its traditional spirit throughout the globe. It is the mission of the International Hapkido Alliance to encourage, develop, guide, and provide fellowship for those individuals interested in and/or practicing in the martial art of Hapkido—regardless of style or affiliation.
The IHA promotes Hapkido as a traditional martial art and a means of self–defence, through instruction, seminars and other activities. As much as possible the IHA provides an organisation free of unnecessary politics as well as being able to offer international recognition of martial arts rank, training and instructor certification.
KWAN NYOM HAPKIDO
Kwan Nyom is the name given to the style or family of Hapkido taught by the International Hapkido Alliance. The name translates from Korean as the School of Concepts and was created by Grandmaster Geoff in June 1999. Kwan Nyom reflects the way we teach Hapkido – the core techniques are the same as most other traditional Hapkido schools, but it is the way in which we teach them that is different.
