Hapki-Do

Hapki-Do is the art of bringing together energy. It is distinguished by three essential techniques: passivity when opposing force, countering and attacking with circular movements, and absolute penetration of an opponent’s defenses the “wake” (water) principle. For example, if an attack is strong, one must receive it gently. Likewise, if the attack is gentle, one must counter powerfully. This complementary manner of reacting establishes a perpetual liquid rhythm as well as constant mobility – the hallmark of Hapki-Do.
