Hapkido is a Korean martial arts system that incorporates striking, kicking, throwing, joint locks, take-downs, chokes, and traditional weapons.

It teaches a coheasive set of principles that explores the relationship of human physiology and self defense.

At its core, the art embodies a holistic approach to mind-body fitness, personal growth, and self protection.

Not quite.

BJJ and MMA are common terms many think of when discribing Toronto self defense schools.

Although Hapkido is a Jiu Jitsu type martial art that is Korean, the techniques differ in focus. It has its roots from Japan, and shares similar techniques to what is seen in today’s mixed martial arts training.

To be clear –  we are not an mma school 🙂

Certainly. We would love to have you.

However, in consideration of our members’ privacy, we’ve recently had to discourage people coming simply to “watch our classes”.

Some people felt, understandably, uncomfortable with strange faces coming everytime to watch them sweating their butts off in class 🙂

None-the-less, 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.


Women make up a good size of membership also our instructor team.

T.H.A Martial Arts is committed to offer a training environment that is family-like, inclusive, and gender neutral.
