Hapkido is a Korean martial art and self-defence system. It includes punches and kicks, joint locks and throws, falling techniques, and defence techniques for a variety of situations. It also includes weapons such as belt, knife, cane, staff, and sword. The focus is on gaining control over the opponent through dynamic and fluid movements, often by combing multiple techniques into a single coherent technique. The videos below show some of the techniques taught in Hapkido. See this Wikipedia article for more information.
