The Complete Art of Self-Defence
The Korean martial art of Hapkido is becoming increasingly popular. Hapkido is primarily defensive in nature, however it can be very offensive when the need arises as most of its techniques are based on an opponent’s attack and once the attack has been nullified, a soft or hard counterattack is launched, depending on the severity of the attack.
Hapkido combines punching, kicking, throwing, takedowns, sweeping, falling, rolling, joint locking, pressure points, restraining, breakaway techniques and weaponry to make it one incredibly complete martial art system.
The name Hapkido translates as ‘The Art of Co-Ordinated Power’ – Hap meaning co-ordination, Ki meaning power and Do meaning art.
