Hapkido Classes for
Teens and Adults
Do you want to learn how to use your opponent's strength against himself? Are you searching for a complete self defense system?
The essence of hapkido is not to overpower an attacker with strength but to utilize techniques that turn an attackers own force on himself. Using hapkido, it is possible for you to defeat a much larger and stronger opponent by focusing on their weakness, and using their strength against them. Teens and adults of any strength or size can learn hapkido and use it as a self defense system.
Hapkido contains both long and close range fighting techniques, utilizing dynamic kicking and percussive hand strikes at longer ranges and pressure point strikes, joint locks, or throws at closer fighting distances. Your hapkido training will emphasize circular motion, non-resisting movements, and control of the opponent. You will also use footwork and body positioning, gain advantage and employ leverage to avoid the use of strength against strength.
This traditional martial art system also focuses on the development of positive personality characteristics (self confidence, self discipline, self-improvement, compassion and respect).
