WHAT IS HAPKIDO

Hapkido employs the philosophy of using minimal force to overcome a stronger opponent. Therefore, great strength is not needed to apply the techniques effectively. In addition, Hapkido uses pressure points to assist in controlling the opponent and a good Hapkidoist has the ability to adapt his or her fighting style according to their opponent’s strength or weaknesses.

Hapkido has a powerful arsenal of spinning kicks, thrusts and sweeps combined with hard and soft fist attacks and defences. As well as the use of kicks and punches, Hapkido uses nerve and pressure point attacks, wrist and joint locks, and many twisting and throwing techniques.

Hapkido has become increasingly popular due to the fact that anyone, young or old, male or female can practice this form of self-defence regardless of physical weight or strength.

The AHA is a professional Association representing 19 clubs Australia wide.

What are the benefits of Hapkido?

Self defence is not the only benefit of Hapkido. Hapkido’s traditional values reinforce discipline, respect and self fulfilment in a friendly training environment.
Health is improved through systematic training and exercise. Development of muscles and muscle tone, correct posture, control of weight, a sense of self-confidence, self-control of both mind and body, and spiritual fulfilment are just some of the other benefits of studying Hapkido.

Building Self Confidence.

Building Self Control.

Building Resilience.

Building Friendships.
