FOUNDER OF URBAN COMBAT HAPKIDO
Grand Master Magnus Degéus is from Kristianstad, Sweden and along with Andreas Olofsson founded Urban Combat Hapkido Federation (UCHF) in 1996 in Sweden. It is an open system which encourages the students to seek knowledge and skills from everywhere they can. All students are free to integrate previous knowledge in their training, learn from each other as well as the Instructor. UCHF has now grown international and we are represented in Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, England and Italy. Due to Grand Master Magnus and his friend co-founder Olofssons previous Martial arts backgrounds the system has been praised for being easy to understand and learn for beginners but can be very complicated and hard to master at higher levels taking many years of dedication and practice.
