Summer Holidays Fast Approaching!

Are you wondering how to keep the kids busy during the school holidays? 

Why not book them into a super fun day in which they will learn new skills, build self confidence and make a bunch of great new friends. At our program your kids will be busy all day, exercising and playing games, practicing social skills.  Detoxing from devices, connecting with peers, and moving with meaningful activities and challenges do wonders for children's mental, emotional and physical well-being. 

At the end of the day, they all go home tired but happy, with many fun memories made. 


The holiday fun days are facilitated by Absolute Self Defence's Founder and Leader, Ma'am Gaye Terzioglu,

and her amazing team of Jidoja young leaders who have years of experience supporting younger students, making their journey fun with creative ideas! We have 2 air conditioned rooms to cool down, in summer! 

New to hapkido? You do not have to be a member or have any hapkido skills to book into our Fun Days and feel welcome and comfortable. In fact, a Holiday Fun Day is the perfect opportunity to experience learning hapkido with us! Each day of the came we hold a self defence class and safety awareness interactive session.

Hapkido Summer Camp dates are:

December 18, 19, 22 January 8, 9, 12,  15, 16, 19,  22 and 23. 

If you are interested in private group play dates for your children and friends, we can book them in for 4 hour or 8 hour increments on the dates other than above on offer.

We can entertain them and you can rest or work in peace!


Places fill quickly as we limit numbers.

Dec 2023 - Jan 2024 Hapkido Fun Day Flyer.png


Absolute Self Defence was created out of a strong passion, a shared vision and a ceaseless commitment to making martial arts learning easy and accessible in a safe, nurturing and welcoming environment.

Since 2018, we’ve had the opportunity to help countless students acquire self defence skills, develop safety awareness and improve health, fitness, well-being, confidence, balance and coordination. For younger students we focus on school preparation with emphasis on gross motor skills and core strength development, social skills and self-regulation/control.


End of 2020, we have moved to bigger and better full time Dojang in Mt Kuring-Gai, as part of our commitment to our students. 

Absolute Self Defence focuses on teaching Kwan Nyom Hapkido, as a proud member of the International Hapkido Alliance (IHA) and Australian Hapkido group, both founded and led by Grandmaster Geoff Booth. 


Our reputation grows each day as an excellent Martial Arts School in the Mount Kuring-Gai area and surrounds, focusing on Self-Defence and overall well-being of each individual student and our community. We provide a wide range of age appropriate programs and events, to support our students in their martial arts journey.
