While the Shinsei Hapkido Federation is a fully autonomous organization, there are advisors that serve on the board of the Federation. They are:
George I. Petrotta - ISA Director and head of Sungjado, 8th dan through World Kido, and our adviser to the World Kido Federation.
If no Shinsei Hapkido class is available it is suggested that student search for a nearby class of Akayama Ryu under Soke Mark Barlow or one of his teachers. Likewise, if a student of Akayama Ryu cannot find a teacher they are invited to train with any of our Shinsei Hapkido classes.
