hapkido is practical for learning anatomy and balance. it can help your TKD skills tons, but keep it in the right perspective.

There is practical Hapkido that fights and trains alive. youtube combat Hapkido

But if you are training somewhere that gives you the 10 year line ... then no. The 10 years to practicality bit is a scam and self delusional lie.

"Practical" in what context? What kind of situations are you trying to address?

I certainly agree with the first sentence, but not sure where the recommendation of Combat Hapkido comes from.

Unless this is your idea of live training:

YouTube - Combat Hapkido (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXz1-3cuwWQ)

(The founder of CHKD, John Pelligrini, is a well-known "paper tiger" in the HKD community.)

I think the OP is being a bit impatient. So you might have to put up with getting your ass kicked for 10 years, but after 10 years you might actually win one!

Search "Pro Hapkido" on Google Video. If your Hapkido looks like that you would be alright. I doubt you would be asking the question if that was the case however. Many Hapkido schools overemphasize the more "aikidoish" aspects of the art (single point of contact joint manipulations and throws) while neglecting the more judo like aspects (multiple point of contact throws, chokes and submissions). Schools of both types may or may not use a lot of TKD style kicks that are different than the ones originally found in Hapkido. Any school or style that claims you need to train for ten years before developing proficiency is a huge red flag. Would you pay for swim lessons that took that long? Any good school using good training methods should improve your fighting ability in a few months. From the tone of your OP it seems you already know the answer. Finding another place to train may be imperative but keep an open mind to Hapkido because it can be quite good.

To the OP,
I see that you also train MT and BJJ, if you train your HKD in the same way as MT and BJJ then you will learn to fight, if you train deadpattern drills...run.
Quit HKD, join a Judo club and you'll be better off.

I'd actually like to know what school.

i would agree with the above posters. really, hapkido is as practical as the way you train it.

deadpan drills = anatomy class. alive training with throws, locks, and chokes = good hopkido

My apologies to the OP

bt i am not dissatisfied with hkd....maybe it s too early to understand the value of the art...To early? You really aren't reading what people are typing are you?


Before the Hapkido defenders start in, read what I wrote carefully.

Read post #10 again, then look at the stylefield, know that I started in 1998 until present day.
