Hapkido

Hapkido – (Korea) “The way of coordinated power” Blends striking and grappling styles, and is adapted from Aiki Jujitsu (Aikido’s predecessor), to include throws, joint locks, and pressure points as well as strikes and blocks. Hapkido is intended to immobilize the attacker as quickly as possible by countering in the opposite manner of an attack such as by countering a linear attack with a circular technique and vice-versa.
