Hapkido is a Korean martial art with the primary emphasis on realistic self-defence applications rather than sports related competition. It is a comprehensive system which combines practical techniques designed to subdue or control an attacker, more typically associated with Japanese arts such as Aikido or Jujutsu, with the dynamic kicks and hand strikes normally associated with the Korean martial arts of Taekkyon and Taekwondo.
At Jeongsin Martial Arts we teach the syllabus of Hapkido Moo Hak Kwan, one of the oldest ?Kwans? of the Korea Hapkido Federation (the largest, wholly Hapkido, governing body for the Korean martial art of Hapkido, in the world).
Students will learn to avoid conflict but, if necessary, be able to react quickly, efficiently and effectively to protect themselves. The skills and techniques of Hapkido are taught gradually and progressively and include:-
Basic body positioning, movement and evasion skills.
Dealing with close contact situations.
Defending against grabs, holds and chokes.
Blocking and defending against strikes and kicks.
Counter attacking, including striking, kicking and throwing.
Control and restraint techniques.
Grappling and ground techniques.
Defending against armed and multiple attackers.
Hapkido is used extensively by police and prison services, the security and personal protection industry and military units around the world.
Classes are available to men/women/youths (age 14 - 17) and juniors (age 10 - 13) to learn this powerful and effective martial art and become part of a dedicated group.
Whilst learning how to protect yourself you''ll increase fitness, reduce stress and gain increased confidence in a safe and relaxed environment. Students are encouraged to advance at their own pace.
Come and try a free introductory class or just come along and watch. We''ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
