Combat Hapkido concentrates on eliminating the non-essential parts of martial arts in order to produce a simple, effective self defence system. The Adelaide Academy of Combat and Defence is the only school in Australia that teaches the system under the world renowned Grand-Master John Pellegrini, founder of the International Combat Hapkido Federation.
Combat Hapkido is perfect for those that want to learn effective self defence and self preservation techniques and tactics in a short time without all the added extras that often come with the traditional arts. The system uses predominantly locks and holds and low line kicks to resolve conflict and avoid harm.
Shotokan is no longer offered in class at AACD, as it has been replaced by Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo Jutsu.
