    Hapkido is a pretty good style to learn from. Although there kicks may not be too useful on the streets. I mean those high kicks. But overall its a pretty good art. Its based on Aiki-jujitsu.

    It's not my primary study but we include some in our training. It's pretty good but I'm not a big fan of joint locks (specificly wrist locks) or pressure points too much. They are pretty inefective against me. Maybe I'm just a freak with flexible joints and my pressure points are located in odd places but I tend to think that there is enough variety between people that as often as it will work it will fail.

    Technically I've done Hapkido, I just chose never to ranked in it. Hapkido is a more self-defense approach to Taekwondo in my book. Like any other system it depends upon the instructor. I usually use the wristlocks when I have to secure somebody during security work (did that sound redundant?)

    I do hapkido. It is a good art as long as you can think outside of the box and use learn to adapt the techniques to different scenarios.

    I hear there is a lot of backstabbing in the Hapkido community. But, basically it's a darn good self-defense system. Haven't you ever heard of the infamous BILLY JACK! He kicks ass!

    I practice it and have been very impressed with the techniques . I think there are a fair amount of McDojangs out there though. A lot of TKD schools claim to teach HKD as part of their cirriculum but they are different arts.
    If you want an ecletic art with a fair amount of striking and throws its going to be a good fit.
    Some schools seem to be more Judo oriented and others Aikido in some of their techniques so this is something to look into as a personal preference.

    As with any other MA I'd say the biggest tip would be to be serious about stretching outside of class. This will yield the biggest and earliest benefits
