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.
