If you've been looking for a complete introductory course to self-defense that provides detailed instruction, then look no further!
The Kwon Ko Do Program of Self-Defense draws on ancient Korean methods and gears them to today's threats, giving you a potent arsenal of effective defenses!
For over 5000 years the martial arts have helped people learn valuable self-defense skills. These skills can be used for saving as well as taking lives. In today's modern world, however, we need to be much more aware and responsible for our actions - using deadly strikes only when there is no other option. In most instances, you will need to defend yourself using non-lethal techniques. We must be acutely aware of the letter of the law, and take every precaution to know when to apply the appropriate technique and force against a given attack.
This is where Kwon Ko Do differentiates itself from structured martial arts programs. It is a system of self-defense, not just a single martial art. It is made up of a blend of techniques taken from many fighting systems around the world and so it is not confined to any one system. The foundation of the system is built upon the highly effective application of pain through the use of Hapkido's joint manipulation techniques, and the famous kicks and strikes of Tae Kwon Do are also used extensively.
Kwon Ko Do has the flexibility to "take what works" from any system - boxing, karate, taekwondo, hapkido, judo, jujitsu - the list goes on and on. Finding what works for the individual is what is most important. The same technique may not work the same for a 5' woman as for a 6' man or a 4' child. Additionally, the majority of the population does not have the time to devote to the ongoing study of a particular system - let alone several!
This is why Kwon Ko Do is the ideal self-defense program for today's modern era. Those who train in it have the ability to draw from a vast pool of techniques, and then determine what works best for them.
It does not take a lifetime to master - only the desire to learn and some time to practice. Years of training are not needed to gain a basic understanding of self-defense and master the techniques in this program. Utilizing a smaller number of techniques that work in a variety of situations and becoming proficient in those is enough for many people interested in learning some self-defense. A more in-depth study can of course be followed - the level of interest will obviously vary by student. For those with a thirst for knowledge in this area, a lifetime is not enough to learn it all. For those looking to learn how to protect themselves, Kwon Ko Do is perfect.
