Information on the IMHF
Modern Hapkido Federation was founded by Chief Master Victor Cushing to promote realistic self defense oriented Hapkido
through a network of Instructors with various backgrounds in Hapkido as well as other martial arts.
We offer a self defense system based on a selection of Hapkido methods integrated with modern
weapons tactics to improve your chances in real life attacks.
Hapkido is 100% for self defense.
The IMHF affords it members the opportunity to train at our member’s schools as well as at our seminars
and training camps. We offer testing, promotion and internationally recognized rank and instructor certification. All of these
benefits are open exclusively to IMHF members.
The IMHF fees are very reasonable. There are other associations that
charge much higher fees than the IMHF, and there are those who charge much less.
who charge much more seem to be motivated purely by a profit motive rather than wanting to form life long relationships
based on training together.
Those that charge much less fit the old adage
of “you get what you pay for.”
Many associations that charge much less are small
organizations that cannot offer you any real support, they are selling paper.
IMHF will spend time helping your school and improving your students skills. We work with you on the mat.
The IMHF is recognized internationally. Our representatives rank among the best martial artists in the world.
We ask all of our members to become actively involved in making the IMHF one
of the best Hapkido and self defense arts federation anywhere.
