History
Combat Hopak (Ukrainian: Бойовий Гопак, Boyovyy Hopak) is a martial art, based on the Ukrainian traditional dance Hopak. It was created by Volodymyr Pylat in the 1980s.
Pylat analyzed both the fighting and dancing tradition of Ukraine. Together with Myroslav Shukh, a specialist in Ukrainian folk dance, he created the Experimental School for the Study and Research of Ukrainian Fighting Culture in 1985.
Volodymyr Pylat has written several books on Combat Hopak, created in 2001, and now heads the International Federation of Combat Hopak.
Ukrainian fight clubs now operate in Lviv, Kyiv, Ternopil, Chernivtsi, Khmelnytskyi, Kamianets-Podilskyi, Kirovohrad, Kharkiv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lutsk, Vorokhta, Dnipropetrovsk, Dniprodzerzhynsk, Odessa, Pavlohrad, Rovno, Chicago (USA), Toronto (Canada) and in many other Ukrainian and USA cities.
