Hapkido is a dynamic and eclectic Korean martial art that could be considered the first “mixed martial art.” Rooted in the devastating Samurai battlefield techniques of Daito-Ryu Jujitsu, Hapkido combines joint locks, throws and chokes with a wide variety of striking techniques.

Our style of Hapkido – known as Hammerhead Hapkido – is an especially progressive and exciting style that blends elements of Southeast Asian martial arts into Hapkido to create an art that is highly effective at dealing with the types of attacks that are common today.

See our Schedule and Location page for up-to-date information on class times and location, then come in and try a class this week! I look forward to meeting you.

  1. Is this something a senior citizen could do?

    • Hi Marvin. The answer is yes. There will be techniques you may not be able to do, but we can work around those. Many of my students are middle aged, and three are over 60. So you won’t be alone.
