Hapkido is a powerful and innovative Korean martial art. Literally translated, the word Hap means coordination or harmony, Ki denotes the essence of power, and Do means the art or the Way. When translated it is described as "The way of coordination and internal power." Hapkido incorporates powerful and precise kicking techniques; fluid and highly effective throwing techniques; and decisive and sharp hand techniques.
The philosophy of Hapkido stems from three basic principles: The first is non-resistance: yield to your opponent by meeting force with minimum force to deflect and not clash with your opponent's power. The second is circular motion: the use of circular, fluid, flowing movements are emphasized rather than linear movements. The third is the water principle: total penetration of an opponent's defenses through continual attack. Instead of opposing force by force, a Hapkidoist completes the opponent's movement by "accepting the flow of energy as he aims it," and defeats them by "borrowing their own force."
