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.

In consideration of our members’ privacy, we’ve had to discourage walk-ins coming to watch.

It’s quite understanding that some people would feel uncomfortable with visitors 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 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.

What type of Martial Art is Hapkido?

Hapkido is a Korean Self Defense system that evolved from Japanese Jiu-jitsu.

It is a mixed martial arts discipline that forges effortless takedowns, skilful joint manipulation, with devastating strikes and kicks into a cohesive system of self defense.

If you’ve always been fascinated with martial arts like Judo, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Aikido, or throwing and grappling-type arts in general, you will love our Toronto Self Defense classes.

We designed our classes with you in mind… and have a caring team of couches and instructors at hand to help you each step of the way.

With T.H.A Martial Arts Toronto North York classes you learn self defense skills to face opponents while standing, confined to close-quarters, or on the ground, and without the fear of injury or needing to become a pro fighter 🙂

Our Martial Arts program embraces a progressive and street-smart approach to self protection training.

We also honour traditional values such as humility, kindness, self-control, and respect.

You will enjoy progressively challenging workouts in a mature environment, while learning practical self defense skills safely and responsibly.

3 week trial

What I love most about this martial arts toronto school is how friendly and welcoming all of the instructors are as well and the other members. The workouts are intense and everyone motivates and pushes one another so that everyone can get the best workout possible!

David Tam

I am not originally from Toronto, but in the time that I have been here, everyone at T.H.A Martial Arts has been extremely welcoming and they quickly became my ‘Toronto family’. Having this support system makes it easy to motivate yourself to do class, even on those days when you just want to go home and sleep.

Compared to my experiences at other schools, THA’s classes are always different and creative. So, you won’t get bored repeating the same drill every class. The instructors do an excellent job at making the techniques more interesting by putting context behind it or adding more elements once you understand the basics.

Taisley Isaac

Highly energetic class that will get your physical aptitude going in a serious way! The instructors are professional, fun and motivating.

In 6 months i have lost almost 35 lbs and have gotten down to 15% body fat. Guaranteed you will be hooked!!!!


Great place for everyone! The martial arts toronto classes here are welcoming and exciting. There is always something new to be taught and you are constantly challenged to push your body to obtain great fitness results.

I would recommend this place to anyone who has ever had even the slightest interest or curiosity towards martial arts. This place will really give you a different look of martial arts.

Maria Habib

This is by far one of the best martial arts Toronto schools I have ever trained at. Genuinely nurturing, motivating, and professional people that I have met.

The school embodies the historical martial arts spirit of discipline, respect, and camaraderie with the modern element of fun and humour.

Since the first day I joined, they always greet me by name and they notice when I have been missing for a few days.
