World-Class Instruction

Master Traina and Catherine Traina received their training in Hapkido under Grand Master John Pellegrini and are now members of the World Kido Federation.  The World Kido Federation is recognized by the Korean Government as an organization that serves as a link between the official Martial Arts governing body of Korea and the rest of the world Martial Arts community.

Hapkido employs joint locks, pressure points, throws, hand strike (attack)s, and low-lying kicks, and trains practitioners to either counter or preemptively strike an imminent attack to defend oneself. In common with many Hapkido styles, it also emphasizes small circular motion, non-resisting movements, and control of an opponent through force redirection and varied movement.  Practitioners seek to gain advantage through footwork, distractive striking and body positioning to employ leverage. Students will target vulnerable areas, weak points, pressure points, or vital points of the body to produce significant pain or other effects.

Trapping is designed to be reactionary and reflexive. The techniques and drills in this program are designed to develop specific technical attributes from Jeet Kune Do that blend drills and techniques with Hapkido. Trapping is a way to gain advantage over an opponent by manipulating them to accomplish a finishing technique, such as strikes, joint-locks, and throws.

Weapons disarming is designed to address most modern types of attacks and situations from blunt weapons, handguns, and long firearms. Techniques involve close quarter combat where footwork and bridging the gap are used to gain superior positioning to gain control of the weapon or the weapon's carrying arm, and then to disarm the attacker. Used sometimes in military and police training.
