Hapkido teaches low kicking strikes aimed at the
shin, knee and thigh area. These kicks are powerful, fast and
destructive. Great care must be taken when practising these
kicks with an opponent, particularly in a sparring
High kicking is also part of
Hapkido, and these kicks are practiced regularly in classes.
These look similar to Taekwondo kicks in style, with hips
turned over in typical Korean style kicking fashion. But there
are a greater variety.
World Koong Joong Hapkido also teaches
special aerial kicking techniques
including butterfly kick, flying side kick, jump spinning
hook kick, kicking while running high up and off walls etc.
This is very dynamic and exciting kicking.
