In our Self-Defense Xtreme course, students revisit and strengthen all the skills and values learnt from previous training. However, special emphasis is placed on learning self-defense – one of the core values of Hapkido. Students will learn the skills required to defend themselves effectively at all times, regardless of the situation!
To be a member of the Self xtreme club, one must have at least five years of solid Martial Arts to include mixed martial arts (MMA), boxing, Wrestling experience or at minimum first degree black belt in any other Martial arts to be a part of this club. One or more of our highly experienced and skilled master instructors will lead class although most of the learning will come from sharing of knowledge with fellow dedicated Martial artists.
Self defense xtremists will learn a wide range of self-defense techniques and moves present in Hapkido and other Martial Arts such as Brazilian Jujitsu, Judo, Wing Chun Kunfu, Karate, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, etc. The use of traditional weapons is also taught, which includes weapons such as the rope, short stick, knife, sword, middle-length staff and the infamous nunchaku.
First twenty minutes of class will be dedicated to intense fitness conditioning and stretching led by nationally certified personal trainer. The remainder of class will focus on techniques. Since fitness is an essential part of this club, late arrivals may be required to complete their conditioning requirement before joining the rest of the class.
Current meeting times for these classes are 7:45 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.
