    I'm sort of kidding. But yeah, Judo would be leaps and bounds better than hapkido.
    No ysc87,there was nothing mentally demanding in it I just didn't like it.

    The quality of hapkido school varies wildly from place to place. If you found one that does full contact, I'd say go for it.

    I like the way Krav maga goes about training; the techniques are simplistic which is good, and they do use the elbows, knees, western style punches, and basic blocks...so it's a good art for the average person. They use high stress application to aid in retaining the trained reaction in a real altercation.

    Now if you're already trained in standup, and train in this sort of way...probably a waste of time for you. I'm itching to go back to BJJ...there's a guy at my gold's gym that is trying to get me to go but is charging like 140 per month on a group rate. Plus the sessions are when I'm at work....so no go for me (right now).

    Judo is a great and proven art, but then again, so is BJJ. One deals with mostly standup grappling, the other mostly ground fighting. Up to you really what you prefer.

    yeah i had the same problem here,the little time i practiced BJJ cost quite a lot,however i think i would rather want to know more about stand up grappling than groung fighting or at least have a good mix of both.

    ON TOPIC

    Seriously check out all the places you are interested in . If you did Muay Thai you will know what good training looks and feels like .

    But I don't think you will find your MT strikes in Krav ... I have heard that it varies school to school as much if not more than Hapkido does .
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Having studied kuksool, a hapkido derivative I can say "skip hapkido".

    Or, what the hell, study both hapkido and Krav and mix them, appoint yourself
    a "grandmaster" of your own hybrid style....

    What are you trying to accomplish - variety? fill some gap in your training? something else?

    Hapkido is (AFAIK) Koreanified aikido (maybe aikijustsu, based on what some TKD folks who do hapkido have shown me). You'll get standing throws/jointlocks/maybe chokes. How resisting are the opponents? I suppose it depends, but I think the average is "not very"

    Krav Maga is a catch all for fighting methods from the Israeli military. There is a huge legal mess between a large Krav organization in California and anyone else who uses the term. I think the best thing you can say is "buyer beware"

    You have an advantage to the average consumer. You likely can recognize good training vs bad. Go and watch. If you like what you see, then you are in good shape.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "Full contact" in the context of Hapkido. In wrists and joint locks you apply force until the opponent taps. If he doesn't tap you break his wrist/elbow/shoulder.
