Grandmaster Dr. Ibraham Ahmed began training in the late 60s with his brother, Ali, who had come home from Vietnam and had taken Tang Soo Do lessons with R.O.K. Army instructors in Vietnam. He learned some basics from his brother, who advised him that if he should get to be stationed in Korea to seek out a good master and train very diligently.

As luck would have it, he received orders to go to South Korea with the US Army 2nd Division, and also was fortunate to find himself assigned from infantry to military office on the Freedom Bridge checkpoint. He found a great master to begin training him—now Grandmaster Sang Sup Kil. They trained every day possible at the Compound Gym in the DMZ and in the gym of Kim Yong Soo in Paju, Korea. Grandmaster Ahmed earned his black belt in South Korea. He was awarded a regional award for excellent poomsae from Grandmaster Kim Yong Soo and excelled at his study of Tae Kwon Do with Grandmaster Sang Sup Kil.

S.A.F.E. Course

Self Defense Law

 

The right to self-defense is limited to situations where the immediate threat of violence cannot be prevented by those authorized to do so (in practice, because no police force is present at the moment of the threat). The right to self-defense granted by law to the private citizen is strictly limited. Use of force that goes beyond what is necessary to dispel the immediate threat of violence is known as excessive self-defense (also self-defense with excessive force).

“A defendant is entitled to use reasonable force to protect himself, others for whom he is responsible and his property. It must be reasonable.”

 

The evaluation of whether use of force was excessive in a given case can be a difficult task.

It was a great learning day for all that attended.Martial artists from all over Sweden,Germany, and USA attended including some high ranking Grand Masters and Masters. Just to mention a few from left to right  Grandmaster Keith Saut 9 Dan Kung Fu Jutsu, Master Andreas Larsson 5 Dan Hapkido, Grandmaster Andreas Olofsson 8 Dan Hapkido, Grandmaster Magnus Degéus 9 Dan Hapkido, Grandmaster Jim Kamen 8 Dan Hapkido, Grandmaster Dr. Ibraham Ahmed 10 Dan Tae kwon Do/Hapkido, Master Andreas Tovgard 5 Dan Hapkido, Master Henric Adersjo 6 Dan Hapkido, Grandmaster Tom Peter 8 Dan Kenpo and 7 Dan tae kwon Do, Master Marco Schrader 6 Dan Hapkido
