                 Hapkido
  
    This Korean Martial Art borrows many techniques successfully 
from other styles; it is a combination of the Aidido, Jujutsu,
and Karate styles of Japan with the Korean systems of hwang Do
and Taekyon(percursor to Tae Kwan Do). It is a style that 
teaches focus on passivity in opposing force, countering and 
attacking with circular motions, and the absolute penetration of 
an opponent's defenses. A Hapkido practitioner recieves a strong
attack gently and counters a gentle attack powerfully and a 
subtle rythym of attacks and counters develops in the combat. 
This perpetual and fluid rythym, as well as constant mobility, 
are hallmarks of the style.
