SUCCESS STORIES FROM MEMBERS
I began training at Canberra Martial Arts (formerly Hapkido Canberra) in late September 2016, after a decade long hiatus from any form of Martial Arts training. After just one trial lesson I immediately fell in love with Hapkido and signed up right there and then – the start of my Hapkido journey. Since then I have acquired new and exciting skills and job-specific crowd control/arrest techniques, participated in several gradings/tests through which I have obtained my Blue 3 stripe belt (4th Gup) currently and will be attempting to grade/test for my Red Belt (3rd Gup) at the end of the year. I also plan to obtain my 1st Dan Black Belt in 2018. Through my time at Canberra Martial Arts, I have met and continue to meet an amazing, diverse group of likeminded people and am developing long-lasting, close friendships. I have begun to see my confidence grow every day and gain a better understanding of myself and what I can achieve if I put the effort in. I am looking forward to the challenges, experiences, and opportunities that lay ahead on my Hapkido path with the new friends and colleagues that I have made here at Canberra Martial Arts.
Awesome course, great to share it with so many other women. The Instructor really layered the learning well so that by the end, I felt like i had an arsenal and had the confidence to use it. I guess even though I’m not into fighting talk, in the context of women’s self defence, that’s a good thing.
Had a bad car accident at 27 years old and was told I’d never do any sport again. 35 years old and I met an amazing doctor who helped me and he help me set up a good support team of physiotherapists and massage therapists. Started taekwondo at 37 years old and at first every lesson meant days of pain and intensive physiotherapy afterwards. But slowly i was getting fitter and stronger through taekwondo. Finally at 41 years old I was strong enough to take on obstacle racing and of course that meant Tough Mudder (21 km obstacle course). I still have physio but it’s now only once a month (and not as intensive as it used to be). Everyday I’m at taekwondo is a massive win for me. I love training. It’s my happy place.
