Hapkido techniques against multiple attackers (SKMA Hapkido London, UK)

Hapkido techniques (Punching Defence, belt Techniques)

We offer self defence and martial arts:

Schools, colleges and universities Adult and Children (from Age 5) Community groups and corporates High performance/competition athletes Students in sports or security related studies Security staff and public service workers (Police & Military) Private lessons


Not only physically will you find yourself being able to “go that extra mile”, but mentally as well. This is the ability to relax and concentrate deeply and more fully for greater lengths of time.


The ability to defend oneself greatly improves self-confidence. Self-confidence combines with better judgment, integrity and overall improvement in lifestyle brings about a positive attitude.


One of the first areas of change. Even touching your toes sets you apart from the majority. Good flexibility promotes good posture and will continue to improve your life physically as you age


Like flexibility, your endurance will show great improvements as you practice, affecting many areas such as becoming less tired while travelling, and a constant increase of energy level.

Dear SKMA Members,

As I have received more requests / inquires on online Hapkido class, I have decided to start an online Hapkido class (45 minutes per class) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from next Monday the 6th April.

  • 3:00 – 3:45: Kids class (5 – 10 years old)
  • 4:15 – 5:00: Junior class (11 – 15 years old)
  • 6:00 – 6:45: Adult class 

I know online Hapkido class is not an ideal but regardless of the age we need something to encourage us to keep active at this difficult time. So I would like to deliver an enjoyable Hapkido fitness programme via online Zoom call.    

Monthly fee

  • GBP 40.00: 2 classes a week
  • GBP 50.00: 3 classes a week

I would like to encourage other family members to join together. As long as you join in the same class, from the 2nd member is free of charge. For example, any siblings join in the same class, you pay for 1 person.

Please let me know if you are interested in our online class. If there are not enough members, we might reduce the number of classes.

Thank you.

Dear SKMA Members,

I hope you and family are well.

Due to the uncertainty of this Coronavirus pandemic lockdown situation, I have decided to provide with an online Hapkido grading via zoom call for whom were ready, especially for those members who scheduled their grading in March.

I would like to do the grading on Tuesday the 7th of April.

  • 3:00 pm: Kids members (5 – 10 years old)
  • 4:30 pm: Junior / Adult members (11 years old or older)

This is only for colour belt members (excluding Black belt mock test). Also, we need a partner (probably one of your family members) who should help for self defence part.

Please let me know if you or your child would like to participate in the grading. Then I will send you a list of techniques for the applicant and a family member to practice.

Anyone who has not applied for the grading but you believe you are ready, please let me know.

Once you pass the test, I will post you a new belt and certificate.

Thank you.  

Dear SKMA Members,

I have cancelled all your direct debit except for the members who told us that they are willing to keep paying their fees. So you don’t need to worry about the fee going out.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the members who keep paying their fees during this difficult time to support our club. When this uncertain situation is over, we will pay you back with credit.

Thank you so much.

Kind Regards

Master Sung
