Military Combatives

Combatives training helps to instill courage, self-confidence and self-discipline. With competence comes the understanding of controlled aggression and the ability to remain focused while under duress. Training in combatives includes hard and arduous physical training that is, at the same time, mentally demanding and carries over to other pursuits in life. The overall effect of combatives training is a successful physical fitness program that enhances individual strength, flexibility, balance, and fitness.

Hapkido

Our core Defensive Tactics curiculum is centered in the Korean art of Hapkido.

Hapkido was not widely taught outside of Korea until approximately 1964, when the legendary Bong Soo Han led a delegation of Taekwondo and Hapkido masters to the Republic of South Vietnam.
