Hapkido by Scott Shaw

Book Description

Hapkido, "The Way of Coordination and Internal Power, " is one of the three major Korean martial arts. Founded in 1963 by Master Choi Young-Sul, it is a complete system of self-defense, encompassing, striking, kicking, and grappling techniques. Conceptually, Hapkido techniques more closely parallel those of Aikido than Taekwondo. In fact, as the author describes, these is a parental link between the arts. In this book, Scott Shaw presents a precise description of the techniques, concepts, and applications of this Korean art of self-defense. Profusely illustrated with 220 clear photographs, this instructional book describes and depicts self-defense techniques against in variety of punches, holds, and kicks.
