Black Belt

A black belt is someone who did not give up and completed the foundation of Hapkido martial arts techniques, for a black belt is the beginning of your Hapkido martial arts journey.  A journey to 1st Dan black belt is different for every student, needing at the very least two-to-three years of regular training to achieve that grade. Melbourne Hapkido Academy black belts are awarded by the Korea Moo Moo Kwan Hapkido Association a registered South Korean government institution and the oldest continuous Hapkido school in the world. 

Anyone can award anyone a black belt, and when students embark on their martial arts journey the goal of becoming a black belt is the goal sold to them. Many martial arts instructors align to many other organisations, styles and give away cheap black belts because they can. They sell the black belt goal without the linage and lore, by merging styles, forms, philosophies and personalities, for example: Karate with Arnis or Taekwondo with JuJitSu. 

The true worth of a black belt is in its linage and history, syllabus and depth, instructors and institutions.  Instructors that associate with world class institutions, like the Korea Moo Moo Kwan Hapkido Association, offer genuine martial arts syllabus, linage and lore to their students.  Martial arts training is not easy, borrowing from Kung-fu it is ‘hard work’, and students who achieve their black belt at Melbourne Hapkido Academy earn globally recognised Dan grades.

When grading for first Dan Black Belt students demonstrate over 150 acquired techniques, breathing exercises, patterns, kicks and break-falls to name a few. This is just the start of their journey, for second Dan students learn 150 integrated techniques layered on top of the first 150 techniques. For third Dan over 100 concepts are acquired and on it goes from there. Unlike many others nothing is borrowed, Hapkido is the original integrated system of martial arts skills.

I have recently started training here. I was thinking of joining a gym, but thought i would give Hapkido a go. The Masters are very professional, supportive and knowledgeable. The culture is welcoming and there is a good “vibe” about the place. It’s early days, but highly recommended.

Friendly, supportive and expert Hapkido masters & seniors who have watched my kids grow up. The best testament is now, 7+ years later, they are both still going strong with their commitment to training and are junior black belts. Most importantly, still enjoying and learning heaps.
