At Sudbury Hapkido you will learn much more than just punches, kicks and choreographed self-defence techniques.
Students will learn to avoid conflict but, if necessary, be able to react quickly, efficiently and effectively to protect themselves. The physical self-defence 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
We teach Hapkido as a holistic system of personal development for self-protection, personal safety, physical self-defence, fitness, self-improvement and wellbeing.
