Students practise their Hapkido skills with light contact sparring which involves kicking, hand striking, throwing, take-downs and techniques.

Fighting techniques (daerien sul) also form part of Hapkido training; students learn a sparring type sequence of moves for each grade.

Hapkido is not a competition style. Many Hapkido moves would result in serious injury to the opponent if they were used in competition. However, aspects of Hapkido are similar to other styles and Hapkido students find that their skills are very transferable to other competition systems.
