In the 1980's, Master Jino Kang incorporated American Boxing into the repertoire of traditional "Karate Style" strikes used in Hapkido. The traditional strikes are powerful and devastating as you can see in the Grand Master's demonstrations. However, with the fluidity and unlimited combinations of Boxing is certainly a welcomed adjunct to traditional strikes.
The grappling aspects of Judo, Jujitsu (Japanese style) and Aikido are also inherent in Contemporary Hapkido. However, Master Jino Kang
has incorporated the ground fighting system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Gracie system) into Hapkido creating the most complete Martial Art, known as Hapki-Jitsu.
Hapkido has every imaginable type of self-defense technique including weapons training, such as Bo (Staff), Sword (Wood and Live Blade),
Dan Bong (Short stick), Knife Defense, Gun Retention and Stick Fighting (Kali/Arnis/Escrima). The weapons are generally taught after a
few years of empty hand combat training to ensure the necessary skills for handling weaponry in a responsible manner.
