Hapkido    合氣道

"The way of Harmonic energy", Hapkido, a highly sophisticated martial art, is based on mirroring and redirecting ones "Ki" or energy. Joint manipulation, pressure points, and circular motion are the characteristic tools of Hapkido. It is similar to Judo in its principle of bending to an opposing force. It is different in the sense that in Hapkido, when the opponent pushes, one turns; when the opponent pulls, one "enters". The spirit of Hapkido is rooted in a deep sense of responsisbility and compassion. Hapkido teaches that we must protect our opponent as well as ourselves. Ideally we must endeavor to immobilize an act of aggression without injury to the attacker or the attacked.
