Does anyone have any information about the Hapkido Center in Watchung New Jersey? Or Grand Master Chong Min Lee?
I've driven by and thought about checking it out. I thought I'd ask first.

Good Point - I just can't find a decent school nearby. Mostly TKD Mcdojos

The pictures didn't look to promising , except that most the people in them looked fit . You will have to go and check it out to be sure .


The website offers no insight as to the things I want to know :
Do they spar ?
How hard do they spar ?
How often do they spar ?
When do they spar ?
Do they compete ?
What do they compete in ?
How often ?
How does that specific school do ?
Have the instructors competed ?
In What ?
ETC ...

Well FWIW the WHA is the group that puts on the Pro-Hapkido tournaments.

That does not necessarily mean that they are a good school, but it does mean that there is a chance they are at least competing in that event. I would go by and take a look around keeping the above list Backfist posted in mind while doing it.

If I remember correctly, the dojang where I practiced in Conroe, Tx was affiliated with the WHA.

While only in Conroe for a period of 4 months, the time spent under Master Pham was time well spent.

Sadly, sparring was TKD rules with no punches to the head.

what do you want to do? How close does "nearby" need to be?

Do a search on "New Jersey schools" - you should find some threads with good options.
If you're looking for something a little less traditional with an MMA flavor look at -

www.redbearsambo.com (http://www.redbearsambo.com)

its the first off the top of my head that should be pretty close to you.
