Wellington To Offer Self- Defense Classes

Let the master instructors of Wellington’s Parks & Recreation Department teach you how to defend yourself, at your own speed, in a safe and positive environment.

HapKiDo self-defense training not only helps you lose weight and stay in shape, but it’s safe, practical and effective. Participants ages 12 and up learn an extensive variety of joint locks, kicks, strikes, take downs and disarming techniques. No previous experience is necessary.

HapKiDo will be offered throughout the summer on Mondays from 8 to 9 p.m., Thursdays from 7 to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m. Registration is $70 per month for residents, and $88 for non-residents. Participants must have a membership with the International HapKiDo Federation, which carries a $40 initial fee and $30 annual renewal.
