  • Description - Walker's Tae KWON Do Academy

    Hapkido is a martial art of Korean origin. Its name means literally 'The way of coordination and internal power.' Hapkido is a complete martial art in that it consists of: dynamic striking and kicking techniques, very similar to Tae Kwon Do, both hard and soft style deflection techniques, throws, takedowns, ground-fighting, and extensive joint locking techniques. Hapkido is the combination of two Korean Martial Arts - Yool Sool which comes from the Japanese art known as Daito-Ryu Aiki-Jutsu and Tae Kyon which is an ancient Korean Kicking Skill that was widespread during the time of the Three Kingdoms. Walker's opened in August 2000 and is owned and operated by Master Mike Kadrovach. Mike is a Kukkiwon certified 5th Dan black belt. He began studying Tae Kwon Do at the age of 25, and has been studying and practicing in the Portage area for over 19 years. Mike's passion for Tae Kwon Do is readily apparent to all of his students. Mike's goals for his students are: (1) to be better than himself and (2) to strengthen their spirits with the 'I can' way of thinking. 'I can't' at Walker's, are replaced by 'I'll try.' At Walker's, the Ji Do Kwon form of Tae Kwon Do is taught. Ji Do Kwon is one of the major Tae Kwon Do associations, which is sanctioned by the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) at the Kukkiwon in South Korea. Tae Kwon Do has grown as a unique Korean self-defense art for about 20 centuries. Today, the popularity and enthusiasm for Tae Kwon Do are not only domestic but worldwide because of the dominant superiority of Tae Kwon Do over any other kind of self-defense art in the world. The history of Tae Kwon Do proves that it is far more than a self-defense method. Not only does it encourage positive moral values such as trust and courage, but Tae Kwon Do develops self confidence and respect. Ar
