Short answer: Hapkido is a Korean form of Jiu-jitus that teaches how to forge effortless takedowns, skilful joint manipulation, with devastating strikes and kicks into a cohesive system of 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.

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.
