Hapkido is a Korean martial art whose name is sometimes translated as “the way of co-ordinated power.” It consists of thousands of techniques encompassing all forms of martial skills; extensive joint locking techniques, throws, takedowns, ground-fighting, dynamic kicking techniques, strikes and punches similar to Taekwondo, and both hard and soft style blocking techniques. The goal is not to meet an opponents force with direct force, but to redirect it using a circular motion, and then counter attacking with a powerful circular combination of techniques. It is an art, which can be put into action from any distance making it compatible with many other styles and personalities. In the art of Hapkido, a 110 lb. person with the proper technique is able to bring someone three times their weight to their knees. If you are looking to learn self defense techniques that will enable you to overpower your opponent with one swift move, Hapkido is for you.
