Grand Master chooses a theme every year and this year the theme is the Cutting Edge. The Tactical Hapkido Alliance IS on the cutting edge, the system is revolutionary in that it approaches the art of Hapkido in a systematic conceptual way. Hapkido is a already a modern art born in the modern age. It is not a traditional art from antiquity. Hapkido was born in the atomic age, when mankind was just beginning to explore space and break all records for speed and distance. Hapkido sprang into a world that had just survived a global war with terrifying new technological weapons. As martial arts go, Hapkido IS the cutting edge and Chon Sul Kwan is the newest and most scientific approach to learning Hapkido. Chon Sul Kwan has cutting edge interception methods pioneered in modern American martial arts like Jeet Kun Do.
I occasionally get asked about traditional Hapkido, it doesn't exist. All Hapkido is modern.
Ours was the first Hapkido system to explore online distance learning via this website.
This year, GM and Master Ziots have brought us brand new DVD's. White Belt through Black Belt filmed with comprehensive instruction and from multiple camera angles. It has been over ten years since the first white through black DVD's and I am happy to present them here for you. Please visit the store and check out this incredible resource.
Finally I started building www.hapkido-online-black.com which is a Hapkido Online just for black belts. It is customized for the needs of black belts and is an invaluable tool for any student pursuing mastery.
I have never been more excited about a martial arts system than I am for Chon Sul Kwan Hapkido it is the finest Hapkido program I have ever had the honor of learning and teaching.
