Understanding Real Self-Defence For The Modern World
Welcome to Strive Hapkido This academy is the first of its kind, where the emphasis is not just on learning new skills, but on better understanding yourself as a person - YOU cannot change others, only your reaction to them.
Instructor Brendon Markos has over 20 years of Martial Arts experience, has represented Australia in Hapkido Internationally and has worked extensively in the Security Industry. Brendon believes it is better to be the best version of yourself, rather than a second-rate version of someone else. Therefore, once you have learned the basics, your Hapkido training is tailored around your personality.
Hapkido is absolutely suitable for all ages - starting with Kids who want to learn self confidence, danger awareness and how to avoid conflict, through to Adults who want to learn REAL self-defence through techniques that work on both the battlefield and street. In his personal life,
Brendon is fulltime dad to his 3 young kids and 5 teenaged step-kids - helping raise kids who are confident contributors to society is not just his speciality, it's his life!!! Hapkido is learned through feeling and doing, so class sizes are heavily restricted to a maximum of 12 students at a time - QUALITY is better than quantity, ALWAYS!
