Hapkido / Yudo

Hapkido is one of the most popular forms of martial arts in the world. Even though it has Korean roots, itís practiced all over the world. Hapkido stands out from other forms of Korean martial arts, such as Tang Soo Do or Taekwondo, in that the focus of hapkido is to deflect an opponentís attacks.

Hapkido emphasizes the redirection of force, circular motions, and controlling oneís opponent. Through proper footwork and body positioning, students will learn how to use leverage to oneís own advantage, as opposed to fighting strength against strength.
Yudo, jūdō, system of unarmed combat, now primarily a sport. The rules of the sport of judo are complex. The objective is to cleanly throw, to pin, or to master the opponent, the latter being done by applying pressure to arm joints or to the neck to cause the opponent to yield.
