About Hapkido VI
We are new to Vancouver Island and are operating out of the Wing Chun Punch Club at 2070 Sooke Road, Colwood, BC. The lead instructor (Subumnim), Tim Murphy, is an experienced educational leader and has years of experience working with youth and adults. He has trained for more than fifteen years achieving second degree black belt. Subumnim operated Hapkido Lac La Biche (Alberta) for three years before relocating to the greater Victoria area. He studied and trained under Master Nam, Yong-Dae in Seoul, South Korea for four years. Currently, Subumnim is working towards his 3rd Dan under Master Nam. We continue to work with our partner-gym, Subumnim Richard Kirchner of Hapkido Spruce Grove, Alberta and Master Song, Jae Han (New Westminster).
Subumnim Murphy combines the theory, technique, practice, balanced mediation with great curriculum and instruction. He has a Bachelor of Education and Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and has been a local teacher and administrator for many years. Self-defense and control requires Hapkido-nim (practitioners) to first lead themselves and share their gifts in all aspects of Self and Society.
