"way of united energy"
Fredrick J Gommels
Hapkido means the
"way of harmonious energy"
and is a practical self-defense
art of South Korea.
The techniques consist of blending with the opponent's force to create take downs, throws, joint locks and pinning techniques. Blocks, strikes and kicking techniques are also a part of the art.
The training involves a wide range of defenses against someone assaulting you with strikes, grabs, kicks or even a weapon.
