Hapkido is a unique martial art from Korea. Practitioners use a variety of striking techniques to attack opponents, but are also trained in throwing techniques, joint locks and grappling techniques. For long range fighting, there are jumping kicks to cut the distance. Students also learn how to target pressure points and neutralize a threat.
Weapons training is a major focus of students. Some of the weapons used include swords, ropes, canes staffs and guns. All movement is centered on the circle. It teaches students how to redirect force and use that redirection to control an opponent. Using leverage is extremely important to a Hapkido practitioner and allows a student to take on an opponent of a larger size.
