Combat Hapkido
Adult Self Defense
Combat Hapkido includes a variety of joint locks, pressure points, break-aways,
simple strikes and kicks, grappling, and disarming techniques.  There are no
true ‘stances’ and kicks are generally low, targeting an opponents legs, groin,
and mid-section.

Combat Hapkido classes require physical contact between students and these
classes are open for ages 16 and above.  At younger ages there is too much
risk of injuring joints and growth plates.

The Combat Hapkido system includes progression through belt ranks and the
International Combat Hapkido Federation issues certifications to students that
are recognized worldwide.
