Personalized Instruction

Self-defense classes at our school are small, providing a semi-private setting. Our training will be scheduled select weeknights and Saturday mornings or afternoons with only beginner to advanced classes. We provide weapons training and a full array of disarming techniques.

Combat Hapkido School CharterOur classes are currently for students aged 12 and up only and we plan to roll out youth self-defense program, title "Chung So Nyun Hapkido" (Youth Hapkido) for kids age 5 through 12. Our school is perfect for the student who finds time is of the essence. Classes are designed for the busy professional who has a desire to learn the most effective self-defensive system available. Flashy acrobatic martial arts is not a part of our curriculum; practical street smart self-defense is the focus.
