MARTIAL ARTS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

 

About Us

 
 

 

We are a family-focused martial arts school in the centre of Upper Hutt.

We offer a range of martial arts classes for children, teens and adults of all ages.

Our Academy culture is relaxed and friendly. Our mission is to help you and your family to achieve your own martial arts/self-defence goals and to realise your own potential.

We have a strong team of experienced Instructors - details of them can be found on our Instructors sub-page on the About Hapkido page. You will find that we offer much more than just martial arts and self-defence training and we would like you to join our family

So come along and try out an Orientation Class for you or your children and begin your own martial arts journey.

All of our classes are run at our modern, owner-occupied martial arts studio in the centre of Upper Hutt. Further information Here.

 

 

Our Core Classes

 
Hapkido for Adults and Teens
Hapkido is self-defence focused but training in Hapkido will also increase your physical abilities - stamina, strength, and flexibility - as well as your mental awareness and self-confidence.

Other Classes
We run several other classes that compliment Hapkido to allow you to go deeper into areas that are only covered lightly in the main Hapkido syllabus. These are "Ground Combatives", "Pressure Point Combatives" and "Principals of the Sword". Once you have attained the relevant grade requirement in Hapkido you may join any of these classes.

Our Academy joined the New Zealand Ju-Jitsu Federation earlier in the year. The Federation covers grappling styles (Ju-Jitsu, Aikido, Judo, Hapkido, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, MMA, etc.) and works closely with Sport New Zealand. Since joining the Federation, the Academy has been working hard to adopt and implement many of the Federation's procedures and policies. As a result of this, our Academy was recently awarded the Federation's GOLD quality award - only one of two martial arts schools with this award in the Wellington City region.
