Kids and families

Hapkido is a martial art that instils into children a confidence to stand tall in the face of adversity.

Hapkido does not teach simple kicking and punching as the only way to get out of a situation,

Hapkido teaches control and restraint.   

Kids learn the same techniques as adults for the simple reason these techniques work regardless of size, age, gender or strength.  Because the syllabus is structured and detailed kids learn to concentrate on the subject being taught, translating to enhanced concentration skills at school. Taught in a traditional manner it is about building their confidence, abilities, self esteem and character.

Melbourne Hapkido Academy trains kids from ages 7 plus (grade 1 plus).

Kids and parents can train together. Why just sit and watch the kids when you too can keep fit and learn self defence. Click here for joining.

    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.
