Taekwondo (or tae kwon do) literally means ‘the way of the hand and foot’. ‘Tae’ stands for jumping or flying, to kick or smash with the foot.‘Kwon’ means punch or to destroy with the hand or fist. ‘Do’ is simply the way. Taekwondo is more than a martial art, it is a way of life. It is a version of unarmed combat designed for self-defense. Taekwondo has for centuries been an integral part of Korean society. The art’s effectiveness comes from the development of body flexibility and fluid movements as well as pure strength. Techniques are based on the physics of movement in conjunction with an understanding of the body. Through intensive physical and mental training, students can gain ultimate use of the body’s facilities. Taekwondo has no equal in either power or technique. Taekwondo has gained world-wide popularity for its simple and effective self-defense applications as well as a means of keeping fit, staying healthy and controlling weight.

Hapkido is a Korean martial art characterized by joint locks, throws, and dynamic kicking techniques. It is unique among Korean martial arts in its emphasis on deflecting an opponent’s attacks instead of forceful blocking.

Hapkido is the “anti-martial art”. It was designed as a way to defend against and overcome an attacker with skill in many forms of martial combat. With roots in Aiki-jujitsu, Hapkido adds striking and punching to joint-locks, throws, and grappling, making it one of the original mixed martial arts. However, unlike modern MMA training, Hapkido gives the student a solid base in different forms of defense, and roots the strategy of that defense in the principles of water, circle, and harmony. This gives the student a solid framework on which to develop their skill so that they are not caught off-guard when in real defense situations.

It is designed to allow a martial artist to rapidly subdue an opponent and render any attacker completely incapable of causing harm. Since Hapkido affords total control over a physical confrontation and emphasizes precision over brute strength, the hapkido practitioner can localize any damage dealt to an opponent and avoid creating unintended injury.
