Authentic Korean martial arts
Great, safe and respectful environment for martial artists of all levels. Delivered by highly skilled and experienced Hapkido instructors, this class offers a great insight into the Korean culture and etiquette within fun, but challenging classes. I was really surprised how much I learnt in a short amount of time. I'd thoroughly recommend for anyone wanting to take up martial arts for the first time or for veteran martial artists looking to add another string to their bow.
Run by to great instructors Darren and Paul always making laugh while helping me with my kicks or holds. If your looking to gain confidence or help get fit I say come along and give Hapkido a chance. I think your be very happy with your choice.
I honestly have to say that the level of experience here is amazing. Darren Beer has amazing knowledge and makes it all so simple to pick up. The class themselves are full of friendly and really helpful people. This class is perfect if your just starting out, or been at it for years.
For anyone wanting to learn practical self defence
After having gained a 1st dan blackbelt in the Korean martial art of Taekwondo I wanted to compliment my acquired skills by learning a 'practical' martial art without having to significantly alter my Korean based style of kicking. After some research I came across Master Sung's SKMA dojo and my time and investment thus far has been worth every penny! You have some martial art schools that are 'mickey mouse' outfits but Master Sung's SKMA Hapkido club is the real deal! It is well organised, professionally run with a great team of blackbelts to assist beginners as well as intermediates. More over you are taught a well balanced, practical martial art that doesn't focus solely on one particular area such as kicks or throws etc but is well rounded to give the user an option for many scenarios where survival through unarmed combat is a possibility. I would recommend anyone wanting to learning practical self defence to get in contact with Master Sung

Best Hapkido School
My three kids have now been attending this school for more than 4 years - there is no better school and no better master around!! It is always fun, innovative and there is a constant drive that keeps you going. Whether kids or adults - if you want to learn Hapkido on any level this is the place to go!
The best Martial Arts school in the area easily, from 5 yr olds upwards..they teach very practical and useful life skills not only realistic self defence taught as a Korean art form from a original Korean Master.
So professional and so much fun!
Although I haven't heard about this art before I never looked back - I am so glad I chose Hapkido! Both my son and myself are training with Master Sung and the SKMA is a highly professionally organised and run martial arts school with assistant teachers and senior black belts always ready to help. Classes are fun, there is a lot to learn at any level, it trains not only your body and mind but develops memory and discipline, and social skills as well, to name just a few benefits! There are extra activities organised on a regular basis such as workshops, seminars, trips, retreats - you will never be bored! Highly recommended. So sophisticated. And could save your life if you ever need to defend yourself, God forbid! But it's of course better to avoid or prevent conflicts. And Hapkido also helps to boost your confidence and be street-wise.
Simply the best martial arts school I have trained with, Master Sung is a kind, humorous and very knowledgeable teacher who likes to improve and build up every member of his school. I have greatly enjoyed training there and will continue when I am back in London.
A very practical martial art
Wanting to take my martial arts expertise to a high level I came to Master Sung's Hapkido school. I must say that Hapkido is the most practical martial art I have ever come across and Master Sung is one of the most skilled martial artists I have had the pleasure of personally knowing. His school is professionally run and highly organised and he has a great team of senior students that are always there to assist the coloured belts and juniors with their techniques. Since I started training in January this year each syllabus has techniques that are practical in a real life situation if you were forced to defend yourself against a punch, kick, grab to wrist etc. I highly recommend anyone interested in learning self defence to join this school!
In the class of its own
Highly recommended Korean Martial Arts school in London. I would go as far as to say it is probably the best self-defense art, taught by a very humble and knowledgeable Master.
Best place to enjoy learning martial arts
No matter how useful or practical a martial art is, you don't want to learn it unless it is fun and enjoyable.
Master Sung knows very well how to teach martial arts in practical and enjoyable ways.
At the SKMA, I've learned the most practical art to defend with great fun.
The programme involves basic stretching, kicking practice, breakfall techniques and joint-lock skills at least one of which you will find suitable for yourself.
