Hapkido has a lot of striking in it - derived from taekwondo, if i'm not mistaken...?
It also seems a lot more violent, and less considerate of the well-being of training partners than aikido.

I wouldn't have thought there are many hapkido schools in the UK/Wales, though...?
Both Aikido & Hapkido share the same Kanji. So they both should mean the same thing, Hapkido being the Korean version of Aikido with influences from Korean Taekwon. It is this Korean Taekwon influence that makes Hapkido much more brutal than Japanese Aikido.
