Join our
weapons class!

Currently every 2nd THURSDAY 7:00pm-8:30pm (Alternating with Sparring Class)

Hapkido incorporates training in some of the traditional martial arts weapons. Our Hapkido syllabus is fairly extensive so it is difficult to cover everything in our standard classes.
We are pleased to announce that Master David Beneke 5th Degree has agreed to head up this class. He boasts more than 40 years of Martial Arts experience and is sure to leave you richer in wisdom and skills in this often under-practiced component of Hapkido..

About the class

Training with weapons not only teaches you dexterity and co-ordination, but it also improves your timing and self-defence skills.

Most traditional weapons are just an extension of your own body, and use of these incorporates a deeper understanding of the underlying Hapkido principles of circular motion, relaxing and tensing at the correct time, levers and fulcrums as well as footwork and focus.

This class is open to green belts and above, from ages 12 and over.  Come along and see what it is all about.

Class numbers are limited, sign up today to confirm your spot.

How do I join up?

We always recommend taking advantage of the 3-Session Trial Pass before you commit to joining our club. This pass will provide a temporary insurance cover and training for 3 separate classes. This is another good opportunity for you to experience what Northern Beaches Hapkido has to offer.

What to do for your first class?

Come down at least 15 mins before start of class to meet the Instructor who will give you the relevant paperwork and explain what to do.

Wear comfortable loose clothing, shorts/tights/yoga pants and T-Shirt

If you already have a martial arts uniform or pants (black is preferred but white pants OK) feel free to wear that with T-Shirt.

Bring a drink bottle and small towel

It is always nerve racking trying something new. No need to be, our Instructors and students will make you feel welcome and explain how the class will be run. You won’t be expected to do anything out of your comfort zone , and your Instructor will give you plenty of rest breaks if needed. Beginners and white belts are strategically placed towards the back of the class.

Classes are usually structured so that students mix around and get to train with each other, at times grouped within their levels of experience, other times learning from more senior levels. There will always be someone to train with, but especially for children feel free to bring a friend along to share the experience with.

If on the other hand you have had previous Martial Arts experience or already have a good level of fitness, your Instructor will recognise this and assure you are challenged to an enjoyable class.
