ABOUT OUR STYLE
Hapkido was adapted from Daito Ryu Aiki Ju-Jutsu as it was taught by it's founder Choi Yong-Sool.
Choi was trafficked to Japan as a child where he later learned martial arts from his instructor Taekeda Sokaku. Upon returning to Korea after the second world war he began teaching Hapkido.
His students later combined the system with kicking and striking techniques of indigenous and contemporary arts such as Taekkyeon, and Tang Soo Do; as well as various throwing techniques and ground fighting from Judo.
Hapkido is an eclectic form of martial arts. Each school has its own variations of technique and training methods. Here at HILTZ HAPKIDO our style has been further influenced by:
Modern Exercise Science - we do padwork drills using metabolic conditioning protocols proven to tone, build lean muscle mass and burn fat.
Small Circle Jiu-Jitsu and Kosho Shorei Ryu Kenpo - We utilize principles from these styles to simplify the process of learning joint locks while enabling effective manipulation and pain compliance of the opponent through universal principles.
Kyusho Jitsu - Pressure point techniques that deliver a effective and predictable result by disrupting the normal function of the body's nervous system..
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu - Select components and principles from the system are preferred as they address the issue of striking that often gets overlooked during grappling.
Modern Arnis - Principles and flow drills from Modern Arnis have been adapted as they seamlessly transition between hand-to-hand and weapon drills.
