    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I train at a Hapkido club. The instructor lets me ignore the curriculum as much as I want and doesn't make me do gradings. Overall the Hapkido curricula I've been exposed to are ridiculously convoluted, the only good thing is that they include all ranges of fighting, so if you get a group with a good mindset you can train pretty much like MMA. That's roughly how the club works, 1 hour of conditioning, 1 hour of techniques, then we can stay after class for 2-3 hours and train however we like. It's really more a case of the club being good despite the Hapkido, rather than because of it.

    .- Gi/no-gi grappling (stand up and knee grapples)
    .- contact sparring (medium contact)
    .- work partners for any other skills (rolling/falling? Judo-style throw/fitting drills, guard passing, arm/knee-bar practice).

    Details here: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...t=77252&page=5

    If you care to come to the regular class you can also "not find" all of the above as regular training .

    But: also wrist locks.

    If nothing else is available I can see the attraction .

    ... and just to be clear , in my reality it is not the Art that fails as much as the training and teaching methods .

    No.

    I wasted a lot of time figuring this out.

    If you wanna grapple, take BJJ, Judo, Sambo
    If you wanna beat on people, take boxing, kick boxing, muay thai
    If you wanna do both take MMA.

    There are some good things in Hapkido, but the signal to noise ratio is so low just don't bother.

    Fair enough, but we will actually spar or grapple (or both) folks who visit. That should put us a few points ahead of most "come to my gym" responses.

    Not the point. This was a noobietown thread where the kid gloves are supposed to saty on.

    No, "I'll show you real Hapkido."
    No, "It is the practitioner not the style."
    No, " We have the real."


    Yet, that is exactly what we got and why it is now in YMAS.

    Just want to pop back in to remind everyone that it really doesn't matter if your Judo/Sambo/BJJ is taught out of a Taekwondo/hapkido/what have you mcdojo as long as it is legit Judo/Sambo/BJJ. In fact, a lot of good clubs and instructors share or rent space in mcdojos. So, the "avoid any place that teaches TKD" advice is not necessarily good advice.
