<p>We are a school that teaches the self defense arts of <b><a href="http://www.greenhillmartialarts.org/Combat-Hapkido.html">Combat Hapkido</a></b> and <b><a href="http://www.greenhillmartialarts.org/Jun-Fan-Gung-Fu-Jeet-Kune-Do.html">Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do</a></b>. The instructors are dedicated students of these arts with a passion for sharing their knowledge and experience. While both disciplines can be explored separately, many opt for training in both, as the two arts compliment each other very nicely.</p>
<p>Combat Hapkido utilizes joint locks, strikes, kicks, and weapon disarming. Jeet kune do, Bruce Lee's "Way of the Intercepting Fist" focuses on making your defense your offense - attacking while blocking. It also offers a range of kicks and strikes.</p> <p>We do not teach forms or katas, or "acrobatic" kicks or throws. Nor do we break boards and compete in tournaments or competitions. Our mission is to teach people to defend themselves from any conceivable method of attack. </p> <p>You do not have to be in your physical prime in order to train, however, you will find yourself growing more fit and will enjoy increased balance and self confidence. There is a wide range of techniques designed for all types of people, and our smaller classes and personalized attention to each student help customize your self-defense program to your abilities.</p> <p>This does not mean we teach some "free style" martial art, or some hodgepodge of random techniques from other arts. Our belt/level ranking strictly conforms to the requirements set  by the <a href="http://www.dsihq.com/combat-hapkido.html">International Combat Hapkido Federation</a> and JKD Concepts method under <a href="http://www.derderian-academy.com/">Sifu Raffi Derderian</a>. However, as the students progress into the higher ranks, they are expected to take what they have learned and make it their own.</p> <p>Our school is a club devoted to perpetuating the martial arts; not a for-profit business. Income from tuition beyond compensation for necessary services goes back to running the school. Our instructors, students, and parents of young students all pitch in to keep our school running because we share a passion for what we offer.</p> <p>Classes are for students 7 years old to adult.
