Combat Hapkido is a practical, real-life self defense system. Often referred to as the "Science of Self Defense", it includes an extensive variety of strikes, kicks, joint locks, pressure points, grappling and weapons disarming techniques. Students learn dynamic concepts that are based on such scientific principles as anatomy and biokinetics, as well as psychology and strategy. The emphasis is on redirecting the assailant's force and controlling the attacker with minimum effort.
It is well suited for men and women of all ages and sizes, as physical strength and athletic ability are not essential. Combat Hapkido is also perfect for busy professionals and law enforcement who do not have the time to study a traditional martial art. There are no endless hours memorizing katas, or high fancy kicks to the head. This is not a sport and there are no competitions. This is 100% no nonsense, street smart self defense!
