Combat Hapkido is an eclectic modern Hapkido system. The style employs joint locks, pressure points, throws, hand strikes, and low-lying kicks, and trains students to either counter or preemptively strike an imminent attack to defend one’s self. 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 and students seek to gain advantage through footwork, distractive striking and body positioning to employ leverage.
PAMA’s Hopkido classes are instructed by Master Eric Mayes. He is currently a fifth degree black belt as well as the Rocky Mountain Region Director of Training and Operations. Not long after, he began training in Hock Hochheim’s Scientific Fighting Congress which is comprised of several Asian and Pacific Rim styles and Close Quarter Combatives. Eric eventually earned black belts and instructor status under Hock. In the mid 2000’s Eric had the good luck to be invited to train with Martial Blade Concepts founder and Black Belt Magazine 2010 Weapons Instructor of the Year, Mike Janich. He is now one of a few Certified Full Instructors in the Martial Blade Concepts.
