The way of Korean Martial Arts, a comprehensive Adult martial arts system comprised of the study of empty hand techniques, weapons, internal energy, martial arts philosophy.


The purely physical benefits of Hanmudo training in our adult martial arts are Power, speed, agility, flexibility, and core strength. For sure weight loss and cardiovascular fitness are all easily achieved through the martial arts.


You will learn kicks, punches, blocks, sweeps, throwing techniques, joint locking techniques, pressure point techniques, holding, and choking techniques.


Hanmudo teaches you how to use your opponent’s power against himself. In some of the adult martial arts programs, smaller person would face some major difficulties when they are against a bigger size person. But because we have Hanmudo as our adult martial arts program, then our smaller size students have a better chance against a bigger size person.


You will learn about the Ki (internal energy) which is a vital component of the Han Mu Do System. You will learn breathing exercises to stimulate the flow of Ki through the body.

This will help you to learn how to cultivate and accumulate Ki energy and also to control the circulation of Ki through the body.
You will also gain life-changing mental skills including discipline, perseverance, and confidence. In all areas of life, success depends upon the ability to set a goal, believe in yourself, and then work hard under difficult circumstances. It is precisely these abilities that we focus on in our Hanmudo training programs. A person trained in Hanmudo is one who faces life’s challenges with poise and energy. This is an empowered person who plays an active role in shaping their own destiny.


Hanmudo training is not just a fitness routine. It is a path toward comprehensive health–healthy body, healthy mind, healthy spirit, healthy life. That’s what makes Hanmudo classes a workout unlike any other.


Han means Korea (nation of optimism) and Mu Do means Martial Arts. Therefore, Han Mu Do translates to Korean Martial Arts. This system was founded by Grandmaster He-Young Kimm in 1989. Han Mu Do is registered to the Korean Government as a recognised style of Korean martial arts. (Registered Number 534)

Please check out the following Q & A

Will I fight anyone?

What we have is called sparring and it is not a fight. Sparring is for those who want to try it. You don’t have to try it if you don’t want to. Sparring is controlled and we don’t let anyone try it if we think he/she doesn’t have control.

Will I get hurt?

As you know injuries can happen in any physical activity, but our injury rate at Family Self Defence is very low. We have seen people get injured more at playing sports like Soccer, Netball, and Football.

Does it matter if I’m a slow learner or uncoordinated?

You should consider this program as a journey not a race. This is an individual program not a team sport. Everyone will learn at their pace. So it doesn’t matter if you are slow as your speed of learning won’t stop anyone’s progress. Just have fun and learn as much as you can.

What if I have a medical condition?

You need to ask your doctor if you have a medical condition. If your doctor says it is ok to train martial arts, then you need to also let your instructor know about your condition.
