Hapkido is a traditional Korean martial art and a dynamic form of self-defense derived from traditional Japanese Jiujitsu but with a twist… literally.
In Hapkido, you do not practice for sport, instead, you learn to use your opponent’s energy against them. This is accomplished through flowing & circular movements(the aforementioned “twist”) not previously taught in the root art of Jiujitsu, making it more effective against larger opponents without the need to be stronger or faster.
Hapkido encompasses elements from almost every martial art including: Striking. Blocking. Throwing. Locking. Grappling. Defensive Weapons and the tactics and training needed to apply everything you’ve learned effectively if you were ever in a defense situation.
New students are always welcome to come try out 2 weeks of training, essentially “test driving” the program, to make sure it’s the right fit for you. To register for your trial please fill in the form below.
Now that you know more about the “art” here’s a bit about myself:
