The Korean martial art of Hapkido is considered by many to be an advanced martial art system because of the vast array of techniques it encompasses. Hapkido, was founded by Korean Grand Master Choi, Yong Sul who, from 1919 to the beginning of World War 2, had studied Daito-Ryu Aiki-jutsu in Japan, one of the arts Morihei Ueshiba synthesized into Aikido. Around 1939-40, Choi combined his knowledge of Aiki-jutsu with native Korean kicking styles to form Hapkido. Hapkido continues to be refined and prosper under the direction of founder Choi, Yong Sul number one disciple 10Th Dan Grand Master Ji, Han Jae.
Along with numerous Korean style punching, blocking and kicking techniques Hapkido also incorporates the throwing techniques of Judo and Aikido along with the joint locking holds of Daito-Ryu Aiki-jutsu to create a formidable fighting style. Hapkido teaches how to redirect your opponents force and use it against him with crippling affect. The redirection of an assailant's force enables a much smaller person to defeat a larger opponent in combat.
Hapkido also teaches the use of angles designed to side step your opponents attack while putting you in a position to counter with devastating strikes, throws, or bone breaking joint locks.
