Being Korean and having researched it, I have an idea of what Hapkido is. However, I still have some questions.

I'm not trying to incite some sort of controversy. But in your opinions, would you say it's an effective form of fighting?

I know it has throwing techniques like judo. Are there a lot of these in hapkido and are there a wide variety of throw moves?

What about groundwork? Does hapkido teach groundfighting, joint locks, submissions etc etc?

Moosulman -

You are on thin ice with all the "effectiveness" questions about Korean arts. Stop asking these questions and do some MORE research!

Fine let's take out effectiveness. I just want to know though.

Are there a lot of throws? They varied?

What about groudnwork? Please stop getting angry and read the question

I HAVE read many of your so-called questions, that is why I am warning you.

Having studied hapkido for 10 years now. I would like to tell you that as a fighting art it is one of the most complete. It has striking,joint locks,strikes,throws, groundfighting, it doesnt purely focus on one thing but teaches you alot of everything. At advanced levels they have techniques where you can use your instep and knee to break your enemies knee. It is a very good system!!

Hapkido is considered by many the Korean version of Japanese Jujitsu. Some stand up, holds, bars, ground fighting, sweeps, throws, etc. It really is a good martial art ... just like all of the others. All have something to offer if you look for it.

Its connection to Aiki-Jujits makes it look like Japanese Jujitsu or more like Aiki-do. But Hapkido likeness ends there Hapkido has as many hand and feet techniques as Tang-soo-do or Old style TKD.

It concentration is on Its Aiki-Jujits but it also emphasises kicks, I am particular impressed by their use of power kicks to the back and spine area this is usually totally a off limits in competition arts. And for good reason but its a valid target on the street.

I’m sure we’ve been through this before, but broad questions about the effectiveness of an art are near meangingless. It depends on so many factors, from the quality of the school and instructor to the student’s own experience and mindset. Hapkido is a very comprehensive martial art, focused on practical fighting and self-defence and providing its practioners with a wide range of skills. Whether they would be any use of the street depends if they’ve been practiced correctly. A lot of traditional martial arts have a weakness in that regard – the students spend too much of their time doing set moves on willing opponents (some make up for that with a sporting aspect, but then students get too used to fighting by rules, so it's a bit of a nowin situation). Still, I do Hapkido, and taught and practiced correctly, I would be willing to put a lot of faith in it.
