Re: Aikido and Hapkido

The "harder style" issue well it depends which style of aikido you practice.

I have not seen a lot of Hapkido but from what I have it's similar to aikido, I agree with that.

What do you mean when you said that they do more strikes?, do you mean atemi or attacks? I ask this because if you are talking about atemis, well that also depends on the style of aikido you practice.

As far as I now, aikido is kind of a "healing" art to because it helps your body in a lot of things, what I did not knew is that Hapkido is a healing art (from that I understood that it may be similar to Shiatsu or Reiki, please correct me if I'm wrong).

Just my 2 cents.
