What is hapkido
“The dedicated practitioner of a martial art acquires a mental dexterity that combined with fitness and training provides for a calm and confident response in a wide variety of circumstances”
- Anonymous, 1949.
The learning of Hapkido is suitable to men, women, and children from the age of 6.
Wellington Hapkido Academy teaches the traditional style of Hapkido. We run a relaxed and friendly class where serious learning takes place with little formality.
We operate out of a dedicated martial arts centre off Adelaide Road, Mt Cook, Wellington. The facilities include 200m2 of padded mats, changing rooms, kick bags, and other equipment specific to martial arts.
We are a non-profit club with all instruction and administration provided voluntarily by our members.
We teach practical self-defence in a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. Each student is encouraged to learn and understand self-defence as a means to enable fitness, encourage well-being and gain confidence.
We offer FITNESS
We offer SELF-DEFENCE
We offer CONFIDENCE and WELL-BEING
I have learned to use Hapkido breathing, posture and concentration techniques at work – particularly before meetings.
A couple of weeks ago I stumbled in on your classes. The instructor was awesome and I'd like to come back Saturday.
