There are and have always been people with more honor and integrity than any of us, who have never raised a fist.
I disagree with Bodhi108 that "It's all Hapkido" Those videos did not even look like hapkido to me, and they looked weak. I know there is some disagreement of what is hapkido and what is not. It has evolved like every martial art has, but that does not even resemble what was taught in my school. The woman practicing judo would probably beat them all, even though that was a demo.
I don't think there is a trademark on Hapkido, and I think people can teach something and call it hapkido, when it is not. It is the same as karate or taekwondo, and other "arts" there are good and bad schools.
Those to me are not good examples. The demo looked completely choreographed, and was not very impressive anyway. Things like that, I can see why hapkido is not a terribly popular art on this site.
Well for one thing, I was busy helping a friend in trouble yesterday and I did not get a chance to read any of this thread, make any responses or replies. Tonight, I picked up where I left off and responded to a few along the way. Now that I'm to the end, I will address those as well

Here's one place. Haven't checked them out, I just finished a gig, and I'm inebriated.
I did not know at first that I had to double space for a paragraph. Usually indentation solves that. I figured that out.
You are what you are, and don't pretend to be anything else. Yes, you are a total asshole, but at least you know and accept it, just as everyone here knows and accepts it. You are not a nice person, OK that's not hard to figure out either.
No, I am not homophobic. It was being called anything that was meant to be a put down that I didn't like. I am not gay either. I don't want to hear about or be involved in what they do. What two consulting adults do with each other in privacy, I really don't give a ****, even though it seems gross to me. I don't care.
Now for back peddling. When I get out of line, I'm willing to admit to it. I should have read more of your posts before calling you a parent's basement jerk off. You are no doubt an asshole, but so be it. I also watched a video of one of your fights, and you can beat me in a match without a doubt. It would take a brick to crack your head. You're not the best, but you are tough.
I am not kissing your ass, asshole, but I will give you respect in the areas that you deserve it.
Not being a total asshole, admitting my mistakes is just part of who I am.
