Aussie Sports Resort provides a range of self-defense training classes based on Hapkido and Taekwondo for all ages and genders. With this expansion, the USA School of Self-Defense will offer a version of this training tailored to the needs of children.
Hapkido and Taekwondo are traditional martial arts disciplines with deep Korean roots. Taekwondo is an Olympic sport and martial art that combines self-defense skills with enhanced control of the mind and body, while Hapkido emphasizes self-defense principles that teach practitioners how to deflect an opponent’s attack.
The self-defense classes focus on helping participants be more aware of their surroundings and ensure their safety from physical attacks. During their training, students learn safety and awareness strategies, defensive techniques, assertiveness, managing bullies, and more. The school provides weekday and weekend classes, which can be attended as a group or individually.
Students start with verbal education to understand the tenets of their training and the psychological elements needed to attain proficiency. These sessions are followed by physical training and exercises where they can put all learned skills to practice.
