Training catered for individuals
Having had a passing interest in martial arts over the years this piqued my interest and I attended a few classes to see how I would go. Some 5+ years later the rest as they say is history.
The great thing about this martial art discipline, and this club, is that they are more than willing to adjust techniques etc to suit the individual’s physical limitations. They certainly expect that you be the best that you can be and strive for perfection, but if one is physically unable to master certain techniques they will work out an alternative for you that will achieve the same result. For me with the limitations placed on me by my knee this has been a godsend.
Real Life Approach
I had visited several martial art schools before finally finding Eagle Martial Arts. The first thing I noticed was how friendly everyone was, no one was there to judge my capabilities but rather take time out from their own training and help me with any of my weaknesses. Training under Greg and Scott Walters has been the best decision for me because while they maintain all the traditional aspects of Hapkido there’s very much a “real life approach” angle to their training. I have found with a lot of other martial art schools you can go through belts quickly but you never really learn to defend yourself. That’s what separates Eagle Martial Arts from other schools. Their instructors are constantly drilling us, helping us and turning us into more confident students in and outside the school. There is a strong community feeling in the club and many of us have become friends outside of the club too.
Support and guidance
I have Hapkido to thank for making me the person I am today. Through it, I have learnt not only how to protect myself but also how to better myself. It has no doubt improved my respect, discipline, confidence and also fitness over the 4 years I have been training. My instructors have always been there to support me and provide guidance both in training and outside, they have are role models to me and I look up to them not only as martial artists but as the person I strive to become. Training for Hapkido doesn’t stop when I’m outside the Dojang because it’s found in everything I do and I appreciate this aspect of Hapkido the most”
Rounded martial arts
I did Tae Kwon Do for several years, reaching black belt level. After a long break I decided to get back into martial arts. I wanted to do a martial art that was based on self defence rather than sport or competition so I chose Hapkido. Hapkido is a much more rounded martial art compared to Tae Kwon Do and while training at this club I have learned a range of useful techniques.
Self defence and fitness
I started at Eagle Martial Arts as I was looking for a martial art that more about self defence than competition. After training for a few weeks, I also found myself getting fit. It’s good for self defence and for fitness.
