This ground-breaking work is the first to comprehensively document the traditions, philosophy, and techniques of one of the world’ss most varied, exciting, and practical martial arts – Hapkido. More than 9,000 (!) photographs introduce over 2,000 martial techniques, including strikes, kicks, blocks, avoiding movements, holds, joint locks, chokes, throws, falls, tumbling, ground fighting, and weapons. Numerous close-ups show precise grips, leverage methods, pressure points, hitting surfaces, and direction of force. In addition to self-defense techniques, chapters are included on East Asian philosophy, martial arts history, anatomy, meditation, healing, and pressure point fighting, as well as in-depth, previously unpublished interviews with the world’ss pre-eminent Hapkido Grandmasters and renowned Grandmasters of related martial arts. This superbly organized work of exceptional quality is the definitive text on Hapkido, and destined to become a classic of martial arts literature. There is however one big problem with the book: it is so large and heavy that you’sll need a firm table on which to read it!
