on the Caspian Sea with GM Cushing

During the time of a moderate government in Iran I was invited to visit Iran and train a group of Iranian martial artists who wanted to improve their skill in Hapkido with an emphsis on self-defense.

Governments can make what decisions they choose.

The students and Masters I met there elected to adopt Modern Hapkido as their primary art due to its self defense orientation as well as my open attitude towards their culture.

The clips shown below were directed by Chief Master Reza Valinezhad.
