WELCOME TO MANAWATU HAPKIDO
Manawatu Hapkido was founded by Malcolm Wright in 1992. Hapkido is a dynamic Korean martial art of self defence. It incorporates joint locks, strikes, throws, basic ground defence, weapons and everyday items. It is not a sport, it is a martial art that is effective against common street attacks. It is suitable children and adults of all ages and sizes. Anthony Dyer (3rd dan) started in 1996 and is our chief instructor. We are a small club that prides itself on having a friendly atmosphere for both adults and children, providing quality martial arts training. Please come and see what we have to offer.
We seek to improve ourselves through the study of self-defence. Hapkido develops confidence, endurance, power and heightened awareness. Attacks on Hapkido practitioners are very rare.
