"What is World Self Defense Arts"?
Because there is not one perfect martial art for any given self defense
situation Grandmaster Choi developed a comprehensive self defense system
by combining the most effective, practical techniques from Hapkido,
Judo, Jujitsu, and Karate with a foundation built on traditional Tae
Therefore World Self Defense arts techniques include not only the high,
powerful kicks of Tae Kwon Do but also joint locks, throws, pressure
points, ground fighting and grappling.
No martial artist is complete with only physical skills. Traditional
philosophy, respect, responsibility, discipline and courtesy are taught
and reinforced in every class.
All of our instructors have earned their rank under the direct guidance
of Grandmaster Choi and are legitimately qualified martial arts
instructors with their students best interests always a primary goal.
