The Science of Self-Defence

Chon-Tu (Combat) Kwan Hapkido is not a martial art that teaches military-style fighting, rather it is a modern, versatile discipline of self protection that includes joint locks, low kicks, strikes, take downs, pressure point manipulation, ground survival fighting, and disarming techniques. The result is a comprehensive Self Defence system suited for men, women and teens with varying degrees of physical strength and athletic abilities that is enjoyable to learn, safe to practice and most of all highly effective.

If you are looking for a martial art that is focused on self-defence, rather than competition then Combat Hapkido is for you.

Combat Hapkido

Combat Hapkido employs joint locks, pressure points, throws, hand strikes, and low-lying kicks, and trains practitioners to either counter or preemptively strike an imminent attack to defend one's self. In common with many Hapkido styles, it also emphasizes small circular motion, non-resisting movements, and control of an opponent through force redirection and varied movement. Practitioners also seek to gain advantage through footwork, distraction strikes and body positioning to employ leverage to defeat their assailant.

Teen Self Defence

Fighting to defend oneself is not always the best solution, sometimes it is the ONLY solution. When we think of the type of trouble our teenaged children might face on a daily basis bullying might just be at the top of the list, followed by swarmings, robberies, common assaults, and sexual assaults.

When school programs fall short in their scope, training in Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido will teach effective defensive techniques and assist in personal growth by developing confidence and a can-do attitude.
