ICHF Int'l Police Defense Tactics Institute group

The Combat Hapkido Program at Action Arts Academy USA Combat Hapkido (“The Science of Self Defense”) is an extremely realistic and versatile discipline/system of self protection that includes an extensive variety of "break-away" techniques, strikes, joint locks, pressure points, ground survival, and weapons disarming techniques.

The result is a practical, comprehensive self defense system that is enjoyable to learn and is truly effective in realistic situations. Our Combat Hapkido program is taught with its own curriculum in separate classes from our Taekwondo program. In a manner similar to our Taekwondo program, ranks (or belts) in the Combat Hapkido program start at White Belt and progress up to First Degree Black Belt (and higher). At Action Arts Academy USA, you can choose to train in just the Taekwondo program, or just the Combat Hapkido program, or you can study both and earn ranks in both martial arts… The choice is yours and depends on your training goals.

Our Combat Hapkido program follows the International Combat Hapkido Federation, of which our school is a Charter Member. Instructor Boyd is also holds a Certified Instructor rating from the International Police Defensive Tactics Institute (IPDTI) and can offer training courses in this area. He also holds Certificates in the Combat Hapkido Ground Survival program and the Combat Hapkido Tactical Pressure Points program.
