On behalf of the Hapkido Hwardokwan and Taekwondo International, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all Hapkido and Taekwondo practitioners. I am very proud and honored to have been appointed to serve the needs of this growing community.
It is the purpose of the Hapkido Hwardokwan and Taekwondo International to preserve the techniques, philosphy and traditions of Hapkido and Taekwondo and to promote a keen understanding of the physical and spiritual aspects that allow practitioners to achieve expertise to their fullest human potential.

Hapkido is more than just sport, it's a lifestyle.
Hwardokwan was founded in 1996 by Chief Master Bo Mikael Lindstrom, Sweden. He brought Hapkido all the way from The South Korea, and succesfully engaged many Scandinavian people with this martial art.
Today Hwardokwan is a team of devoted members, Masters and Grand Masters.
Currently we focus on promoting Hapkido in Scandinavia, as well as providing Seminars with the Grand Masters all over the world.
