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.

          Academy Update September 2020

We have seen a big increase in our membership especially since the end of lock down. In particular our Monday and Thursday afternoon Hapkido Tigers classes have recently grown to the point where we can now split these classes to more effectively manage the needs of these students.
From 28th September 2020, the Monday and Tuesday evening Hapkido Tigers Class will be restructired as follows: 
Tigers Foundation Class (4.30 PM to 5.10 PM)
This is for new Tigers students (White Belts) and the Junior grades (Yellow and Blue Belts). This class focuses on developing core martial arts and self-defence skills. The class also caters to the needs of the new student which is mostly building their self-confidence and physical skills. We also cover strategies for dealing with bullying and when it is appropriate to use the self-defence skills that they are being taught.
Tigers Development Class (5.15 PM to 5.55 PM)
This is for established Tigers students (Single Red Tips and above). This class focuses on building on the core martial arts and self-defence skills developed in the Foundation Class to develop the skills required to attain Junior Black Belt. There is also a life-skills component to this class where we cover the meaning behind the martial arts values and how to apply them in everyday life.
If you want to enroll your child or children in the interim you are welcome to and current class times apply until 28th September 2020.
