Welcome to LI Combat Hapkido & Taekwondo Center

LI Combat Hapkido & Taekwondo Center is proud to teach one of the most practical and effective self defense system ever devised. Originally conceived by Grand Master John Pellegrini in 1992, this martial art finds it's roots in Hapkido, combined along with some of the more practical aspects of TaeKwonDo. Combat Hapkido (known as Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido in Korean), was the first non-traditional Hapkido style founded by an American to receive official “Kwan” recognition by the World Ki-Do Federation. The Combat Hapkido, under the auspices of the International Combat Hapkido Federation, has been taught to students in more than 250 schools in 15 countries around the world.

Combat Hapkido

Combat Hapkido most closely resembles Hapkido (which is often considered similar to or derived from jujitsu), with an emphais on the more practical aspects of modern day self defense. While it is a belt ranking system, there are no forms or katas, and all techniques are labelled in plain, descriptive english (example: yellow wrist escape #2). Due to large number of techniques that employ joint manipulation and locks, classes are offered only to adults and select high ranking teen age martial artists.
