Don't say "Oss" when you walk into a Korean Hapkido Dojang....it's a Japanese expression.

Thanks for the Advice, I can't amend it as its part of my signature, I was also told not to where a Black GI when going into a Jujitsu Dojo either, I did grade to 4th Gup in Tang Soo Do Moo Duk Kwan so I hopefully wont be to sore thumbish WHEN I find an Hap Ki Do Dojang

Dobbersky -

Have you looked into finding a Japanese Jujitsu school? If you can't find Hapkido, then you would probably find JJJ a very suitable alternative.

Agreed, I couldn't find any Hapkido there, but there are a few Jujutsu schools to check out:

thankyou guys for you help, Unfortunately JJJ isn't what I am looking for, I have tried Atemi Kempo Jujitsu and this didn't seem to fit the 'bill', Hapkido is where I wanna be, this is a complete art and understands the ethos of balance when striking unlike in some arts

cheers

Hi mate.

Don't give up! I'm from NI, and I know first hand that there is a derth of Hapkido in UK & Ireland.

I know it may not exactly be local, but would it be tricky for you to get to Skelmersdale? There is a Kuk Sool Won class on there.

Dobbersky

Would you be so kind to answer some questions about what Atemi kempo jujtsu is like?

Is this style japanese, okinawan, both japanese and chinese or both japanese and okinawen?

What kind of combt does it emphasize? Does it prefer striking over grapppling, bone breaking, vital point or pressure point striking?

What is a typical response to an attack? For instance a typical bjj response to an attack is to block the attack then step forward and smother the assialant with their own body to get the clinch, and eventually either a submission or a throw to the ground where they go into ground grappling.

A kempo/kenpo person would usually block an attack and follow through with several strikes of his own, breaking the attack down and following through with a submission or a take down.

My questions are rather vague and they tend to stereo type the arts, but I feel when describing one art to a person that you can ctegorize them, even though every art has a common techniques. For instance is someone where to ask me what does TKD emphasize, I would say kicks. If they asked me what is kenpo like, I would say rapid hand attacks, if they would ask me what bjj emphasize I would say ground grappling, what does judo emphaize I would say sweeps an throws, whats aiki jutsu emphasize I would say bone breaking what does small circle jujutsu empahsize I wold say small joint maniupulation, vital point strikiing. While some other clasical style of jujutsu might say bone breaking and pressure poin striking. Get it?

Atemi Ju Jitsu, along with the World Ju Jitsu Federation and Tai Jutsu Association, are all part of the whole Rod Sacharnoski/ Robert Clark crowd. They but the Mc in McDojo.

Its not like me to talk ill of someone, but with my experience with the WJJF and Robert Clark taught me that essentially it is Judo with strikes taken from Kung Fu and Muay Thai, with some Krav stuff thrown in to boot.

These orginizations all operate under the pretense of being "Jiu Jitsu" as a marketing ploy. All their marketing material states that Jiu Jitsu was the art of the Samuari. "Come study Jiu Jitsu with us". Essentially they are inferring they are teaching the fighting techniques and principles of the Samuari without actually saying it out loud.

Here is the WJJF homepage. Basically consists of merchandise and how to franchise:

Robert Clark is the self-proclaimed "soke" of the WJJF. Bob Cowan, of International Atemi Ju Jitsu, use to have links with him I believe. Robert Clark in turn, use to be associated with Rod Sacharnoski. They cooked up something called "Juko JuJitsu", which is a title which lends itself to a pseudo traditional style of Jiu Jitsu. Again, a marketing thing.

The fact of the matter is, there is no evidence to suggest that anyone under the WJJF, IAJJ, Juko Ryu or Tai Jutsu Association (please note this is a UK based off shoot of Juko Ryu, not Bujinkan) has ever studied traditional Ju Jutsu. They are basically strip mining the image of the Samauri to line their pockets.

There is a some more stuff about messers Rod Sacharnoski & Robert Clark on E-Budo. Dodgy people.

Mercen

Thankyou and Welcome to Fighting Arts, I first saw Hapkido in the 'Game of Death' with Bruce Lee and Ji Han Jae, I thought the Art was complete as it involves Strikes, takedowns and groundwork. I am a practicing Martial artist in many styles including Muay Thai (Westernized version), Atemi Jujitsu, Tang Soo Do (Mo Duk Kwan) Aikido for 6 months and Wado Ryu. Currently I practice Teach Ashihara Karate, and was looking at Cross training in Hapkido as I believe they would complement each other.

Unfortunately I have drawn a blank in my quest to find an instructor in Manchester - Mmmmmmm - No Hapkido Instructors in Manchester UK, I wonder if there's a chance some one might see a opening for moving to manchester and opening a Dojang.

many thanks

Dobber

I also practiced Muay Thai and Wing Chun except for Hapkido, but this system, in my oppininon, gives the widest opportunity for self development. The problem is that many students give up trainings because it is rather hard. What is your altitude to knifefighting?

I have not looked at knife fighting although I do find it spectacular especial watching silat and other similar styles. The average Joe on the street wouldn't handle a knife the way MA's use them. lol

I also searched the internet for you but couldn't find any. Perhaps some of your current Martial Arts instructors might know of somebody if they are all 'in the trade', so to speak. How long did it take you to get to 4th gup in Tang Soo Do and did you feel it was worth it? Are tang soo do and Hapkido similiar in their striking?

I don't know if they teach hapkido, but I believe they teach jujutsu-style techniques as part of their curriculum:

I watched the video. Do they teach anything other than jab, cross, and a roundhouse kick? I didn't see anything there that even hinted at HKD or JJ of any kind. (and ripping your hand out of someone else's and countering with a backfist does not a Hapkido technique make. My 3 yr old niece does that with no training whatsoever) Sorry to be so negative, but as a standard practice, you usually try to put your best foot forward in advertising clips. Or at least a good cross section of what you do...or is it just me?

Does anybody know where to find an article titled: If you want to get real, Hapkido's the thing? It looks like it's from a newspaper called Healthy Life and has a picture of Jackie Chan on it. I can only find an image of it (unreadable) but I can't find the actual article anywhere.

Hi guys,

Came across this post and thought I'd offer to help. I'm based in Manchester and looking for somewhere to train. Im a 2nd Dan Black Belt in Hapkido Korean Hapkido Federation.

I trained under Master Kim Duk Moo Hapkido, I've been been working in Manchester for a few months now and really looking for a place to train and practice. Would be more than happy to teach Hapkido if anyone is interested.

If you have any questions about Hapkido or in general please let me know.
Kind regards
Lee
