Welcome to Semokwan-Ryu Hapkido Academy

Want an awesome aura and mindful kick-ass moves?

Semokwan-Ryu Hapkido Academy was established in 2002 with the idea of bringing a working self-defence system to the community of Clapham SW4, Battersea SW11 and Balham SW12.

Its growing success is due to the fact that Hapkido is so diverse, with strong elements of Taekwondo, Aikido, Judo and Kung-Fu. So there is always plenty to learn.

The Academy is open six days per week with special events on at the weekend and Summer courses available over the holiday periods.
