Short answer: Hapkido is an ecclectic martial arts discipline with a coheasive set of principles that explores the relationship of human physiology and self defense.
It incorporates striking, kicking, throwing, joint locks, take-downs, chokes, traditional weapons, etc; as tools in exploring this relationship.
Self defense is simply one of the many by-products of martial arts training and is not the only focus in Hapkido. At its core, the art embodies a holistic approach to mind-body fitness, personal growth, and self protection.
We offer daily beginner-friendly classes 5 times a week.

Recently, in consideration of our members’ privacy, we’ve had to discourage walk-ins coming simply to “watch classes”.
Understandably some people felt uncomfortable with strangers sitting in to watch them sweating their butts off in class 🙂
We are happy to schedule a visit to check out the school or meet with a member of our staff. If you are perhaps simply curious about martial arts training, we have lots of class footage on our social media channels – #TorontoHapkido.
We are all about service, and do not believe in long-term contracts.
As professionals we hold ourselves to high standards of committment to offering the best possible experience for our members at all times.
In return, we also ask for a small level of committment from you that we feel is fair. We use a billing company with short-term membership agreements that allow to cancel with a 30-day notice. No questions asked.
Yes there are. Women make up a good size of our staff and instructor team.
We also have lots of amazing female martial artists in our classes.
It is part of our core values to offer a workout environment that is inclusive and not gender dominated.
Although Hapkido is a Korean form of Jiu Jitsu (originated in Japan), and shares many components of mixed martial arts – striking, takedowns, submissions, ground-fighting, etc – we are not a Toronto mma school 🙂
