Hapkido for Adults and Teens
At the Upper Hutt Hapkido Academy we offer fun, low, medium and high intensity, technical and non-intimidating martial arts classes for all skill levels. Our goal is to teach the highest quality of martial arts instruction to our members so that you receive the greatest value for your time and effort.
Our Teen and Adult classes will increase your physical abilities - stamina, strength, and flexibility - as well as your mental awareness and confidence. Martial arts classes also lower stress levels which can be so prevalent in the daily lives of teens and adults.

Hapkido Tigers for Children aged 7 to 12
The Upper Hutt Hapkido Academy's Tigers program is more than kicking, punching, and self-defense. Your child will learn important life and leadership skills, how to focus on maximum achievement, and build the unshakable confidence and self-discipline required to reach their full potential. They will learn how to set goals and acquire the perseverance to achieve them because we have crafted a sophisticated reward system that systematically encourages and motivates children to aspire to excellence.

Hapkido Ground Combatives and Hapkido Pressure Point Combatives
These are two new standalone systems that we are introducing to the Academy in late 2018. 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 proper attention. Hapkido Ground Combatives will add to a Hapkido student's ground game while Hapkido Pressure Point Combatives will cover the use of pressure points to enhance Hapkido techniques. These are two martial arts in their own rights so from later this year Hapkido students will be able to study for 3 black belts at our Academy (Hapkido, Hapkido Ground Combatvies and Hapkido Pressure Point Combatives).
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.
