Korean Hapkido Academy

In 1990 it was decided by brothers David & Paul Hastings to change the name of the Leamington Spa club from the Korean Hapkido Institute to the Korean Hapkido Academy to reflect that it was a place of learning and knowledge.

At that time many people found that the name “Institute” did not resonate well with them and tended to be associate with a place for the mentally ill.

The Korean Hapkido Academy is often referred to as the KHA for short.
