Huk Ju Sool
In November 2002 GM Rodriguez received Official Recognition for his
Huk Ju Sool Hapkido System and the World Huk Ju Sool Hapkido Association from His Hapkido Instructor Huk Ju Kwan Grandmaster Tony A. Ramey.
Huk Ju Kwan Hapkido is a Recognized and Registered Style of Hapkido in the Korea Hapkido Federation and Korea Kido Hae. Recognition and Authorization is Important as it is rare to find a Master Instructor who comes up the Ranks and is Given this Honor and privilege from his Grandmaster.
The man who is commonly known as the founder of Hapkido returned to Korea from Japan where he had been taken during the Japanese occupation. His name... Choi Yong-Sool. There is much debate about Choi's life. Some say he was taken to Japan as a servant, others as a student, there are no records to support any one argument. Despite For this reason it is IMPORTANT to join an Association who's' Roots are Strong and Organization is not a mere Diploma Mill. Grandmaster Rodriguez is dedicated to bringing his students the Most Scientific and Sound Street Hapkido.
