Here are what some people had to say about Chon-Tu Kwan (Combat) Hapkido:
East Coast Combat Hapkido is an excellent martial arts system for self defence. The techniques are simple, practical and highly effective with little emphasis on 'flashy' moves. Practicing the techniques fosters muscle growth and flexibility and helps eliminate fear of the unknown. (Brian, East Coast Combat Hapkido Academy student)
As an officer in the Canadian Army for just over 8 years, I can find myself in situations where I am required to be poised, calm and controlled in less-than-ideal circumstances. Beyond the obvious benefits of self-defence and fitness, Combat Hapkido offers its students discipline, focus and confidence that are beneficial to people of all ages and from all walks of life. (Chris, East Coast Combat Hapkido Academy student)
As a small sized woman, I have found Combat Hapkido to provide me with tools that increase my confidence in many situations in life. I not only feel safer because of the self-defense techniques I have learned, but I am also more aware of what’s going on around me when walking to my car or entering my building at night. The Combat Hapkido workouts also provide increased flexibility, coordination and body control, and increased fitness level. All of these added benefits help me in my job as a personal trainer, and are valuable to me as a former athlete. I would recommend Combat Hapkido to anyone who is interested in learning self-defense techniques and improving their overall fitness level. (Andrea Borak, A North Virginia Combat Hapkido student)
