About Us

Master Han Jong-Hyung was born in 1966 in Seoul, South Korea. In 1974 he came to Switzerland to live with a couple who gave him the name Bruno Schwaar.

After having a successful squad career with the Zurich Ski Association, he got in touch with Chinese Kung-Fu, Wing Chun at the age of eighteen at a school of Master Austin Goh in Oerlikon. He then moved to Master Chow in Zurich, where he learned Northern Shaolin Kung-Fu, and deepened Wing Chun.

Time later, in search of his Korean roots, he discovered the Hapkido school in Zurich-Wollishofen. At this school he obtained the 2nd Dan and was active for many years as a trainer, also with children and young people. Hapkido remained Master Bruno’s main style, even though he continuously and with great commitment continued his training in various martial arts, including Wing Chun, Kali Eskrima and Arnis, as well as Gracie – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (blue belt), where he also assists Master Franco Vacirca in Basel as an assistant.

During his HKD time, he also came to Haidong Gumdo, the Korean sword fighting, under Master Lee, where he also achieved the black belt. Today, this knowledge also flows into his GHF weapons courses, as part of the complete Korean martial arts.

I love this place. Students and the teacher are welcoming and helpful. The teacher has also a great kids class. I am going to send my kids upcoming semester. You won’t be disappointed if you join or your children join. I just wish I would have started sooner!

Master Jong-Hyung conducts himself with charm and dignity, teaching from a true love of martial arts. His HKD style emphasizes “body power”, not muscle power, and are very effective against opponents of any size or strength.
His way of HKD also benefits health immeasurably. If you are over 50+ you should immediately try his lessons – you will feel and see great results in short time.
