Re: Aikido v.s. Hapkido

Hapkido has a lot of the joint locks and take downs, but also has a lot of the kicks and strikes found in arts like Tae kwon Do. I had a couple of chances to train with a hapkido master and his son at a couple of their seminars, and was very impressed. It isn't as "gentle" as aikido. The stuff we were learning was to do the most damage to your attacker as possible.
