Hapkido for Adults and Teens
At the Upper Hutt Hapkido Academy we offer martial arts classes for all ages, fitnss and skill levels. Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality of martial arts instruction so that you receive the greatest value for your time and effort.
Our core classes are our Hapkido classes which will not only help you become proficient in self-defence but will also increase your physical abilities - stamina, strength, and flexibility - as well as your mental awareness and confidence. Martial arts training can also help you manage stress which can be so prevalent in the daily lives of teens and adults.

Ground Combatives and Kyusho-Jitsu
These are two new standalone systems that we are introducing to the Academy in April 2019. Hapkido employs self-defence techniques on and from the ground and also pressure points to assist with the application of self defence techniques. We find that in our mainstream Hapkido classes that we don't have time to give either aspect consistent attention. Ground Combatives will add to a Hapkido student's ground game while Kyusho-Jitsu will cover the use of anatomical weal points - including pressure points to enhance Hapkido self-defence techniques. These are two martial arts in their own rights so students enrolled in Hapkido will be able to study for 3 black belts at our Academy (Hapkido, Ground Combatives and Kyusho-Jitsu).
Sword Fighting skills for both children and adults is also offered as a stand-alone class or to compliment your Hapkido training. Further Information Here.
