Penn State Hershey University Fitness Center

Tactical Hapkido & Systema


Based on Tactical Hapkido and Systema, the concepts taught in this program are focused on application in real life, “street” self-defense scenarios.  Effectiveness is based on technique, not on size or strength.  It is well suited for, but not restricted to, the general population wanting to develop self-defense skills, individuals 12 and older, elderly, women, and persons with disabilities.

Students may join with us at any time and study short term to acquire exceptionally effective self-defense skills, or with a longer commitment may be able to progress thorough Black Belt in 2 forms of Hapkido.
