AHA Annual Camp

Australian Hapkido Association
Autumn Camp – 3-5 April 2020


It’s fun, it’s friendly, it’s exhausting and exhilarating, it’s the AHA’s annual Autumn Training Camp! And now is the time to register to attend!

This year’s camp will be held at the NSW State Sport and Rec centre at Point Wolstonecroft – 90 minutes north of Sydney.

The camp is a great mix of training, fitness and fun that will allow you make a huge leap in your understanding of Hapkido and at the same time meet other like-minded martial artists. The focus will be on Hapkido, health, fitness and so the Masters and senior black belts have requested this years camp be alcohol free.


Registering for the camp is a two-step process.

Step one –  register (and pay) via the AHA website.

Step two – Once you have registered you will receive an email containing a link to the NSW Dept of Sport and Rec online Medical and Consent form, which you must complete. Note: a separate form is required for each and every attendee. This is compulsory whether you are training or not – i.e. non-training parents/guardians must complete a form for themselves too. Failure to complete this form (by Friday 13 March 2020) will mean that Point Wolstonecroft will not consider you to have registered, rendering you unable to attend the camp.


Full weekend – training adult (18 years and over) – $255

Full weekend – NON-training adult (18 years and over) – $200

Full weekend – child (5-17 years) – $190

Saturday only – $95*

Sunday only – $75*

(* Note: these day-only prices include your lunch and the Dept’s site access and usage fee of approximately $20)

The full camp price includes all meals and accommodation from Friday evening till Sunday after lunch. Note the last training session of the camp is Sunday morning 9am to 12 noon, followed by lunch and tidy up of the lodges.

Bring a pillow case (mandatory – camp rules) and either (1) a sleeping bag or (2) sheets and a doona, also toiletries. (Pillows are supplied). A suggested packing list will be provided closer to the camp weekend.

Important info for parents/guardians


All children under the age of 15 years must be under the supervision of a parent or guardian for the entire weekend. The AHA does not provide general supervision for unaccompanied children. If you have a child or children under the age of 15 years who wish to attend the camp unaccompanied by you, you will need to discuss this with their instructor BEFORE registering your child/ren. Either your child’s instructor or another adult from their club must agree to act as guardian to your child/ren for that weekend for your child/ren to be able to attend.


Black Belt Training

Black Belt training has been scheduled for the last Sunday of each month, from 8:30-10:30am.

First training session for 2020 is on Sunday 23 February

Held at AHA Headquarters in Brookvale. Unit H, 134-140 Old Pittwater Road , Brookvale.

Cost for each session $25 payable at the time of class.

Similar to last year, we will be hosting various of our senior Instructors each month to impart their knowledge in specific aspects of Hapkido. We will begin this month with Master Geister teaching who will use this session to get through some of the Black Belt Syllabus to  get an indication of where everyone is at regarding their training. Our attendance levels were generally  good throughout last year, but there were still quite a few of you who only got along to only one or two if that. This is your chance to train with higher level Black Belts from all over Australia, and learn from each other to take back to your own schools. I highly recommend you put the dates in your Calendars one year in advance, and try and plan your social life to try and incorporate these sessions into your monthly schedule.

Instructors and the planned content for each session will be available soon.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the mats
