Judo, or the way of gentleness, is an
ideal form of physical exercise and a
reliable system of self-defense.
Created by Jigoro Kano for the purpose
of maximizing efficiency with minimal
effort. The aim of Judo is to perfect
oneself by systematic training of the mind and body so that each person works in harmony with themselves and ultimately with all others.
Hapkido is a self-defense art. What
separates the techniques in hapkido
from other forms of self-defense is
the use of ki, or vital energy. Pursing an understanding of ki is important
to master hapkido. Won Moo Hapkido
was created by Grand Master Lee Sang-Yun
for the purpose of self-defense against
other martial art forms.
