Combat Hapkido

In the words of combat hapkido founder John Pellegrini, “I have merely structured a new self-defense system based on sound scientific principles and modern concepts. For this reason, combat hapkido is also referred to as the ‘Science of Self-Defense.’ Combat hapkido is a new interpretation and application of a selected body of hapkido techniques, with the word “combat” added to distinguish this system from traditional hapkido styles and to identify its focus as self-defense.”

Also known in Korean as chon-tu kwan hapkido, John Pellegrini’s modernized system of hapkido absorbs useful features from boxing, kuntao silat (a fighting style created by Chinese martial artists living in Southeast Asia), jiu-jitsu and Bruce Lee’s ubiquitous jeet kune do. Combat hapkido also features pressure-point attacks, weapon disarms, throws, joint locks, trapping, choking and dan bong (short stick) techniques.
