Hapkido House Martial Arts
About Our Instructors
Mark Power grew up a sports fanatic. He was a kid who loved the challenge of the game. “After losing a step (or two), I decided to take on something I had wanted to do for as long as I could remember – the challenge of attaining a black belt in the martial arts.” He was in the middle of completing a California teaching credential and master’s degree in teaching when Mr. Power began what eventually became a mastering of Hapkido, “The Way of Coordinated Power”. After two decades of hard work and focus, Mr. Power and family made their way to Seattle, where he and his wife, Elizabeth, opened Hapkido House in 2005.
Elizabeth Power is co-founder of Hapkido House and a first degree black belt instructor. She holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and has practiced as a Marriage, Family and Child Therapist. She believes that the art and technique of Hapkido builds self-confidence, social maturity and self-control in people of all ages and physical ability. Ms. Power is also a Stott certified Pilates instructor.
Madeleine Noe is a first degree black belt instructor at Hapkido House. She is also an ACE certified group fitness instructor with over 20 years experience teaching and training adults in a variety of movement formats. In all of her teaching roles, Madeleine enjoys building community and getting to know her students as individuals. Ms. Noe believes that the practice of Hapkido builds not only a healthy body, but a healthy mind and spirit as well.
