About Hapkido

Hapkido is a Korean martial arts form practiced the world over. It is characterized by joint locks, throws, dynamic kicking techniques, and unique among Korean martial arts (Taekwondo, Tang Soo Do), emphasizing deflecting an opponent’s attacks instead of forceful blocking.

Hapkido can be called “anti-martial art.” It was designed as a way to defend against and overcome an attacker with skill in various forms of martial combat.
