Art for the modern Warrior


Combat Hapkido is an eclectic method of self-protection training that incorporates effective and practical philosophies and techniques from many arts. The core curriculum is primarily influenced by Traditional Hapkido, but elements of many styles are incorporated into the training of Combat Hapkido.  Each instructor's influences are not stifled and offer new perspectives on self defense as a whole.


The essence of Combat Hapkido is pure self defense. It is the synthesis of dynamic concepts, scientific principles, realistic applications, and plain common sense. It is the result of over four decades of study and research and development. This comprehensive system is taught in over 250 schools in the US and more than 20 foreign countries.  The ICHF is today the largest, most respected, and fastest growing, non-traditional Hapkido Federation in the World.


Combat Hapkido is an extremely realistic and versatile discipline of self-protection that includes an extensive variety of strikes, kicks, joint manipulations, pressure points, ground survival and disarming techniques.  The result is a practical, comprehensive self-defense system that is enjoyable to learn and truly effective in realistic situations.
