Maybe I should delete this thread before Ubaldo sees it.

Yes, not much was there regarding technique, mostly about legacy and history. But that's a place to start isn't it? I certainly learned a whole bunch of stuff I didn't know before I read that thread.

I would also like to know more regarding the technical links between Aikido and Hapkido, but I am pessimistic about finding quality stuff on the Web. Personally, I'd start with that book you were looking at and go take classes if I wanted to know more.

I will take a look at that site you referred to, though, can't hurt and might help.
