Adelaide has been chosen to host the 2017 Hapkido World Seminar and Championship in a major coup worth around $5 million to the state economy.

This  event is expected to visit in May 2017, but no exact dates have been confirmed.

 

“Hapkido is a highly eclectic Korean martial art. It is a form of self-defense that employs joint locks, grappling and throwing techniques of other martial arts, as well as kicks, punches, and other striking attacks. There is also the use of traditional weapons, including knife, sword, rope, jool bong (nunchaku), cane, short stick (dan bong), and middlelength staff which vary in emphasis depending on the particular tradition examined.”
