This is an advantage for a smaller or weaker defender against a larger, stronger opponent. Hapkido is one of the original Mixed Martial Arts. It combines punching, kicking, throwing, take downs, sweeping, falling, rolling, joint locking, pressure points, restraining, breakaway techniques and weaponry to make it one incredibly complete Self Defence system.

Tae Kwon Do – Tae Kwon Do is the national sport of South Korea and Olympic sport. It is also regarded as one of the world’s most popular martial arts in terms of number of practitioners. Kyeorugi, or sparring, is an official Olympic sporting event and competitors have to be certified by Kukkiwon ( national Headquarters in Seoul Korea). In Korean, Tae Kwon Do is loosely translated as “the way of the foot and fist”. Taekwondo’s popularity has resulted in the varied evolution of the martial art into several domains: as with many other arts, it combines combat techniques, self-defence, sport, exercise, meditation and philosophy. Taekwondo is also used by the South Korean military as part of its training.
