I have lost contact with my Hapkido instructor and I never knew his intructor.
I have my own school now, primarily, Taekwondo, especially for the kids.
I do have several hard corps students who want to seriously study Hapkido. Being a 1st Dan and one without any affiliation, I can take them only so far. I wish to continue my studies.
I am thinking about joining the International Combat Hapkido Federation (ICHF.) I have attended a seminar by GrandMaster Pellegrini in the past. Both the style and philosoply appeal to me.
Other attributes that appeal to me are the comprhensive series of DVD's and seminars that are availible.
I have read what has been posted on these forums about the ICHF and GrandMaster Pellegrini and the opinions seem to be favorable. I remember years ago when Combat Hapkido came on the seen it had a lot of criticism.
It seems ideal in my situation where I am so isolated with no other Martial Arts schools within an hours drive.
