Testimonial Dr. Gerry Hearn: 

“In the summer of 2002, I had the privilege of spending two weeks at the International Hapkido Federation in Korea. I quickly learned that we are extremely blessed at the
U. S. Hapkido Association to have a highly ranked and highly regarded master instructor in Grand Master Marshall P. Gagne. I am a student of Hapkido, Hankido and Hankumdo (sword). Without hesitation, I attest to the fact that the quality of our instruction is second to none. Thank you and congratulations on being inducted into the
Martial Arts World Hall of Fame in 2006.”

Dr. Gerry K. Hearn

Learning Hapkido at Master Gagne’s school is lot more useful and can be used in

everyday life right after the first class. Karate takes six month plus training or even

longer to apply in everyday life. I have more confidence in protect myself

because I don’t need physical strength.

You don’t have to be big and strong, and everyone learns at their own pace. What’s really great about the adult class is that you don’t have to do all the sophisticated moves to earn your Black Belt.
It’s safe for all ages...

Marshall Gagne’s Hapkido is a cardiovascular workout that
combines kick boxing and self-defense.

- I saw your website and just wanted to say hi. I am currently in Italy and just wanted to wish you, and your wife a Merry Christmas. I think of you both often and hope you are doing well. Even though it's been many years, your influence and guidance have meant a great deal to me and I have been using many of your teachings for years on how to treat people as human beings while respecting them as individuals. It is amazing how such a simple touch can be a positive influence on ones life for many years to come. Now that I am the "older guy" and I have many younger people that work with me I thought you might like to know that influences are and can be contagious and if these influences are positive everyone wins....Thanks for your positive influences.
