HRCA works exclusively with Highlands Ranch Hapkido, led by Shelly Gruber. Shelly has been practicing American Hapkido karate for over 25 years with Master Sayed Qubadi who is an 8th degree black belt in Mixed Martial Arts and combat Hapkido. Hapkido is a Korean Martial Art that consists of throws, take downs, standing techniques and a few weapons while building confidence, strength and power. Hapkido teaches you how to use your attackers energy or power against themselves. Shelly strives to teach, share and empower our community by building friendships with one another, knowledge in the mind, and strength in the body with honesty in the heart.
