Original HAPKIDO in Wittenberg

Wittenberg Dojang
Spontaneous visit to Sabeomnim Volker & Nadine Gößling

If you've already covered 600 kilometers for a one-day seminar to Wolfenbüttel, why not take a short detour via Lutherstadt Wittenberg and visit Sabeomnim Volker and Nadine Gößling in training? A look at the school's lesson plan showed that we had good tickets for a visit to the adult training. It was worth a try and the Hm editorial team attacked the traditional Dojang in Wittenberg completely unannounced. We thank you for the warm welcome and the subsequent joint training, which my wife Sabine was of course allowed to capture with our video camera for our Hm readers. I came to enjoy a warm-up unit, which I would like to present to you “extremely shortened” in the video. These are teaching elements that were brought to Korea by Dojunim Choi Yong Sul from Japan under the name "Daito Ryo Aiki JuJitsu" and are trained there under "Hapkiyusul". It was a special honor and pleasure for us to not only complete a private hapkido training with the two Sabomnims, but also to receive a tour of Lutherstadt Wittenberg. Even if you are perhaps not a Lutheran, you have probably already heard of the indulgence trade and the 95 theses written by Martin Luther that the reformer posted on the Wittenberg church door a little over 500 years ago. In the photo we are standing in front of the previously mentioned door, which today contains the theses in engraver at that time. In the center of Wittenberg, we inevitably passed Volker Gössling's law firm on our long walk. So if you get into trouble and need a top criminal lawyer, you are in good hands with Volker Gößling as well as a thirst for learning Hapkidoin. Volker Gößling is the current President in the Hapkido-Bund-Germany and has been active on the mat for over four decades, which he shares with his wife Nadine Gößling and his students. They also practice Silla Gumdo, an ancient traditional Korean sword shape that we may be looking forward to on our next visit. Regardless, I am looking forward to the big upcoming Hapkido seminar in Wittenberg from April 24th. until April 26th, 2020 about which we will report. (Uw)
