Why did you choose HKD as your martial art? What did/do you expect out of the art? What are your goals in the art? Has it met your expectations and/or would you change anything about the art if you could?
well, I learned and still am learning Hapkido at Taekwondo school though self defense sessions I didn't know I was learning Hapkido till much later, one of masters explained to me what "Hapkido" is and [FONT=Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] emphasizes circular motion, redirection of force, and control of the opponent that was little before I became black belt. I love it, i kinda put [/FONT][FONT=Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]puzzle[/FONT][FONT=Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif] together and just not "one after one" techniques. only thing I'd add "hapkido free sparring" at dojang. If i ever truly want to tone my throwing,grapping, jointlocks. i will just go to "pure" hapkido school which is not around my area. better than nothing I guess. [/FONT]
