What you’ll learn in
Beginner-friendly, safe fun fitness and self-defense for teens and adults in Cooper City & Davie FL.
Hapkido is a Korean martial art best known for utilizing joint manipulation and locks to escape from grabs and defend against an attacker. It also teaches a variety of kicks and strikes to provide the practitioner with a wide and varied toolset for self-defense. Our program combines these traditional aspects of Hapkido with effective kicking and striking found in boxing, kickboxing and mma training.
The class starts with a traditional bow to greet instructors and students. The first 10 minutes or so are spent warming up and stretching. We then practice some traditional deep breathing techniques found in hapkido then start working on kicks and striking. For the second half we move into joint lock techniques practiced against grabs, holds, punches and kicks. We like to finish with some strength and fitness training with pushups, squats and other drills. A nice stretch at the end of class is also a great way to finish and improve the student’s flexibility. We bow and say goodnight until the next class.
