  • "For an instructor 7000 miles away, the website has been a tremendous help linking Fiji to theHQ. Having direct access to GM via Mrs P. is an absolute blessing. In addition, the ability to go online and update the ranks of my students via GUP certificates is very easy and user friendlyand professional. In this day and age where martial arts certification is being bought, the websitehelps maintain our standards for ICHF”.

  • The service at DSI is by far the best that I have received from any martial arts association in the
    world. I always get fast responses to any questions I may have. They promptly process and ship
    my orders. The support that Grandmaster Pellegrini and Trina give when arranging a seminar is
    simply amazing. I'm proud to have been a member since 1992.

  • When I moved to Germany in 2005, I noticed an advertisement in the gym calendar. It was for a
    system I had never heard of before. Being a traditional TKD guy I hesitated to join in. Curiosity
    finally got the better of me. I joined class with a friend and he spoke nothing but how CH is a
    family and how they respect you and will encourage you. After a while, I went to my first
    seminar in Valencia Spain and had the great pleasure of meeting Grandmaster Pellegrini. It was
    as if I had been one of his students from the beginning. He talked with me about his style and its
    roots but most importantly its future and how he wanted me and my fellow practitioners to be a
    part of that future. I have been a proud member of the ICHF and ITA ever since and look
    forward to many more years of great study.

  • GM P has been an inspiration to me as a martial artist and I have enjoyed being part of such a
    wonderful supportive organization like the ICHF. It is a great feeling to pick up the phone and be
    able to speak with the owner and founder of the organization about martial arts or business. He is
    even there to offer spiritual guidance in times of need. Thank you for the opportunity to be part
    of such a dynamic, cutting edge martial art/self-defense program. It's no wonder it has grown
    exponentially in popularity with its extensive training and certification programs.
