Korean Martial Art
At Centenary Martial Arts, the primary Martial Art taught is Hapkido. Hapkido is a Korean Martial Art, founded in the 1960s. It has its parenthood in the Japanese Martial Arts and indigenous Korean styles of Taekkyeon Tang Soo Do. It is considered a combat Martial Art and a true Mixed Martial Art.
Hapkido – excellent self-defence system
Hapkido is an excellent self-defence system and utilises close and long range fighting techniques. It also utilises techniques whilst standing, lying and everything in between. These techniques include punching, kicking, knee strikes, jumping kicks, elbow strikes, percussive hand strikes at longer ranges, pressure point strikes, joint locks, take-downs and throws at closer fighting distances and ground fighting and grappling.
Our classes are relaxed
Our classes are relaxed and less formal than traditional schools. We do that in order to encourage as many people as possible to learn Hapkido or Self-defence. We guarantee you won’t be humiliated, yelled at, looked down upon or made to feel insecure. In fact, our classes are so relaxed, many students don’t wear uniforms to training.
We know how hard it can be to start new things and meet new people, when you know nothing or very little about your new venture. Join us and see for yourself. We are confident you will settle in quickly and become one of us. Before you know it, you won’t be the new person and be well on your way through your Martial arts journey. You will also find that you’ll build confidence, improve self-esteem, and fitness without even realising it. Best of all you will meet some great people, make new friends and learn how to defend yourself.
