TMAS - Specializes in teaching foreign students Hapkido in Seoul, Korea.

Total Martial Arts System (TMAS), located Seoul Korea specializes in teaching foreign students WTF style Taekwondo and KHF style Hapkido.

Master Kim, Nam Su, founder of TMAS graduated from Yong-In University, Korea's most prominent martial arts institution and has mastered several martial arts including KHF Hapkido, Taekwondo, Yudo, Yongmoodo, and Teukgongmoosul (Special Forces techniques). Master Kim been teaching foreigners, both military personnel and private individuals, for several years. Together with his foreign assistant master they have developed a martial arts program designed specifically for foreigners taught completely in English. All TMAS classes are taught in English so you can learn KHF Style Hapkido, and do so in the true style of Korean martial arts, training and spending time together like a family.

When many foreign students arrive in Korea they are shocked to find that most martial arts dojangs do not have English speaking instructors and this make a students efforts far more challenging from a learning perspective.

Master Kim stated that "It is difficult for foreign students to learn the techniques properly, more often copying motion as opposed to learning the theory and practice that generates true power. This is why people continually come to train in Korea, in the hopes to learn the true practice and power of techniques from the lands where they originated. We seek to meet the needs of these students while still maintaining the quality of our programs"

The TMAS program not only furthers the students Hapkido knowledge and skills, it also stresses teaching Korean culture so that a student may more comfortably pursue their professional or personal tasks while living in Korea.

To learn more about this program please refer to the TMAS website at
