I'm gonna say it.
There is nothing wrong with taking jujutsu techniques and putting them into HKD, as HKD is a Korean form of JJ.
Hmmmm ... not exactly. Chili has hamburger in it, but Chili is NOT a hamburger. In this same way, Japanese JJ IS a major ingredient in HKD — but it isn't accurate to say that HKD is a Korean form of JJ.
It has all the throws, locks, chokes, etc of JJ with the lovely and powerful kicks of TKD.
Backwards (unless you mean just front, side and round). MOST of the "lovely and powerful kicks of TKD" came from hapkido. Spinning heel kicks, front straight leg heel kicks, flying kicks — all that stuff came from hapkido.
