Combat Hapkido combines selective elements of Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Judo, and Jiu-jitsu. It teaches five levels of application which are escapes, control techniques, joint breaks, take-downs, and last resort responses. Combat Hapkido will teach the student to be a “thinker on their feet” and quickly determine which type of application is appropriate for a particular self defense situation. A Jiujitsu style gi is worn in the class with the opportunity for belt advancement. Classes are great for people of all ages and fitness levels as they focus more on techniques rather than rigorous fitness training.
