About YAKMA

YAKMA was founded by Dave Marriott in 1998. Our syllabus is YAKMA Hapkido.

The aim of our lessons is help people become the best they can be both physically and mentally at the same time. as providing a friendly and caring atmosphere for students to learn in.

We believe that martial arts is as much about perfecting the charachter as learning techniques.

All our classses develop key life skills such as Confidence, Respect and Mental Strength. These skills are particularly important in junior members as they will help them to develop into strong independent adults free from pier pressure. Physical benefits of all our courses include increased fitness, weight loss and muscle toning. After a hard day at work or school stress release is yet another important benefit of our classes.
