What do we teach?

We teach a style called Hapkido which orignally came from Korea. It is known as an 'eclectic' martial art, because it combines a bit of everything: kicking & punching, use of weapons, throws, joint-locks and grappling.

When & where are the classes?

The adult classes are on Monday & Wednesday night at 7:30pm at Kowhai Intermediate School hall. They run for 90 minutes. (see map).

How much does the class cost?

The first class is free, after which we expect you to join on a monthly subscription basis. Monthly fees range from $30 - $50. Here's how to pay.

When will I earn my first colour belt?

We normally do two gradings per year, about six months apart, along with occasional gradings inbetween to accomodate those that can't make it to the scheduled tests. It takes around 4 years to earn your blackbelt with regular training.

How do I get a uniform?

You can order them online from several places. Try Auckland Martial Arts Supplies ( or Zenjo (, or feel free to ask us to put in an order on your behalf.
