    Life Lessons from a Great Trainer

    08-10-2014 by Ben Arnot

    My name is Ben Arnot, I have known Master Tom Adam for six years now and have trained in Hapkido both with him, and under his instruction. I have found him to be skilled, knowledgeable, patient, supportive and motivational. I have no hesitation recommending Master Tom to anybody who is interested in improving their lives through Martial Arts training. Had he not moved to Canberra, my son would be training in his Kid's Classes right now.

    Answer from Canberra Martial Arts Centre on 17-04-2017:
    Thanks Ben. HapKi!

    My kids love it, my 6 year old goes to every available class, even getting a friend's mum to take her to extra classes. The classes are loud and exuberant and my kids are learning a lot. Hubby has just joined the family classes.

    Answer from Canberra Martial Arts Centre on 17-04-2017:

    Family friendly

    07-10-2014 by Chele

    Our daughter started here last term. We were encouraging her to do this to help with confidence and of course benefit from discipline, core strength, physical fitness, self defence techniques, make new friends and so much more. The teachers are fabulous, very understanding of young kids and their limited abilities to get it right first go, they help with technique to ensure no one hurts themselves. Our daughter thoroughly enjoys these classes and will no doubt continue for many years to come. Thank you to the teachers for making our daughter feel so welcome.

    Answer from Canberra Martial Arts Centre on 17-04-2017:
    Thanks for the review! We love making the kids feel comfortable, have fun - then learn Hapkido.

    Great Atmosphere

    07-10-2014 by Luke

    My son has been going for 9 months and counting and I have been so impressed that I started training also. The 'instructor' is patient and understanding when students are learning new techniques yet requires a level of discipline that is to be expected when practicing a martial art. At no time have I witnessed SaBomNim make fun of a student big or small. Fees are what would be expected but for one fee a student can train multiple times a week and even better family discounts apply. My 6 year old wants to keep going back and enjoys every class. Love it

    Fun and friendly

    07-10-2014 by Kerrie

    Hapkido Canberra has been fantastic for my children and me. We have been members for over 2 years. It has a wonderful community of people behind it and the instructors are friendly and always encouraging especially to the younger students. The review by "anonymous" is absolutely false! The instructor has children of his own who often join in the classes and would never treat a child in that manner. If you want the real information about Hapkido Canberra check out the website or drop in and attend a class.
