The throwing techniques taught in the
Hapkido system comprise of sweeps, trips, throws using clothing or throws
using the body or limbs.
Hapkido also uses joint
attacks to the wrist, elbow, neck and head as a defence against
grab attacks and follows throws with further techniques.
Hapkido techniques are not restricted to
the rules of a sport.
Hapkido methods do not extend to ground fighting, but instead
aim to utilize an opponents energy during an initial attack
and transform it into a throw or a technique.
