Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ) and mixed martial arts (MMA) are really popular now. But there is more to them than buzz words.
Our core self defense program, Hapkido, sometimes gets mixed up with these two disciplines.
Although hapkido is a Jiujitsu type martial art, the approach to techniques differ a bit in focus and application.
Hapkido is Korean art with roots in Japanese jiujitsu, so it incorporates techniques often seen in mixed martial arts and various forms of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
So, you will be learning striking, takedowns, ground submissions in your classes.
But, to be clear – we are not an “mma school” or a “bjj school” 😉
