"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 Kwon Do.

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.
