Hapkido / Taekwondo
History of Hapkido

As with most martial arts, the history of Hapkido, is shrouded

in mystery and controversy. Lack of original records, hearsay,
anecdotes, politics, egos, and ravages of time all but ensure
sketchy and biased accounts of the origin of this martial art.

Over the past 2000 years the Korean people have

developed several fighting systems and martial disciplines, which
have evolved into modern TaeKwonDo, Tang Soo Do, Hapkido,
Kook Sook, Hwa Rang Do and others. Hundreds of years of
trade, war, occupation and exchange between Korea and its
neighbors, China and Japan, has resulted in “cross-pollination”,
mutual influence and blending of styles and techniques. It is now
virtually impossible to state with certainty which techniques are
truly Korean, Chinese or Japanese in origin.

Hapkido was founded by Choi Yong Sool (1904-1986).

Reportedly he developed the system by combining native Korean
fighting methods with Japanese Daito Ryu Aiki-Ju Jitsu. Choi had
learned that system from its Headmaster Sokaku Takeda while
living in Japan from 1915-1945. After his return to Korea, Choi
started teaching Self Defense (Yawara) in TaeGue City. He
initially called his system Yu Kwon Sool. One of Choi‟s senior
students, Ji Han-Jae, claims to have been the first to introduce
the name “Hapkido” in Seoul in 1957. However, this is strongly
disputed by Choi‟s first student and mentor, Prof. Suh Bok Sup,
who claims that he and Choi were already using the word
“Hapkido” when they opened their first dojang (school) in 1951.

Some “traditional” instructors claim that Hapkido contains

over 3600 techniques, including as many as 120 different kicks.
However, Prof. Suh Bok Sup, who was Choi‟s first and employer,
disputes this and asserts that the original Hapkido system as

taught by Choi was comprised of only 100 self defense
techniques. Nowadays there are many styles of Hapkido as well
as over a dozen associations / governing bodies. Some styles
have produced forms (Hyung) and require them for advancement;
others emphasize high kicking (including jumping and flying
kicks); still others, heavily influenced by Judo and Aikido,
emphasize throwing skills.

The word Hapkido is made up of three distinct words. As

you will see, each word has a few different meanings.

HAP, which means to coordinate, to combine, to unite, to join;

KI, which means internal power, dynamic energy;
DO, which means the way

The word Taekwondo is made up of three distinct words. As you

will see, each word has a few different meanings.

TAE, which means foot;

KWON, which means fist;
DO, which means the way

Universal Theories of Hapkido

The three universal theories of Hapkido are:

 The Water Principle (Yu), which teaches the student to

penetrate the defenses of the attacker by “flowing” in, over,
around or under.

 The Circular Motion Principle (Won), which teaches the

student how to gain and impart momentum by moving in a
circular manner. By redirecting the attack in a circular
direction the student controls the balance and the kinetic
energy of the attacker.

 The Non-resistance (or Harmony) Principle (Hwa), which

teaches the student to remain relaxed, flexible (not tense)
and not to meet force with force.

The Founder of Combat Hapkido

Grandmaster John Pellegrini is the Founder and President of

the International Combat Hapkido Federation and the
Independent Taekwondo Association. With over 35 years of
Martial Arts study and research in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, he
is recognized as one of the foremost experts and leading authority
on Self Defense. His superior teaching skills and technical
knowledge have earned him the highest reputation worldwide.

Combat Hapkido

In 1990 Grandmaster Pellegrini officially named his style of

Hapkido, “Combat Hapkido” (Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido in Korean).
The name clearly identifies it and sets it apart from other so called
“traditional” styles of Hapkido. It is also referred to as the
“Science of Self-Defense”.

Combat Hapkido is an extremely realistic and versatile

discipline of self protection that includes and extensive variety of
joint locks, kicks, strikes, take downs, pressure points, grappling,
and disarming techniques. The result is a comprehensive Self
Defense system enjoyable to learn, safe to practice and most of
all, totally effective.

Combat Hapkido‟s dynamic concepts are based on scientific

principles of anatomy and biomechanics as well as psychology
and strategy. It is well suited for men and women of all ages and
sizes because physical strength and athletic abilities are not
essential. The emphasis is on redirecting the assailants‟
aggression and power back toward them with little effort and
minimum force on your part.

Combat Hapkido Accreditation

Grandmaster Pellegrini first received unofficial approval for

Combat Hapkido by Grandmaster In Sun Seo while training with
him in Pusan, Korea in 1993. After six years of monitoring and
supervision, Grandmaster In Sun Seo granted Combat Hapkido
official recognition and “Kwan” accreditation in March of 1999.
This unprecedented act established Combat Hapkido as a
legitimate style of Hapkido, registered with the World Ki-Do
Federation and recognized by the Korean Government. The
official Korean name for the system is “Chon-Tu Kwan Hapkido”.
The ceremony of official recognition was held in Boca Raton,
Florida on March 27th of 1999. Grandmaster Pellegrini was
presented with the official certificate of approval by the World Ki-
Do Federation / Korea Ki-Do Association.

The ICHF Logo

The ICHF logo reflects the philosophy of the ICHF by

bringing together the rich heritage of the Orient with that of
Western civilization.

 The red and blue symbol (commonly referred to as the Ying /

Yang) is the Korean Taeguek (Um / Yang) and it represents
the foundation of Oriental thought, wisdom and philosophy.
In the ICHF logo it acknowledges our roots and connection
to Korean martial arts.

 For many centuries, in Western culture, the lion has been

used as a majestic symbol of strength, courage, freedom
and leadership. These attributes are at the core of
everything the ICHF embodies and represents.

 The Oriental symbol at the bottom of the logo is the Korean

character for “Ki” which symbolizes “life energy”, an
indispensable element for understanding Hapkido.

The ITA Logo

The red and blue symbol (commonly referred to as the Ying /

Yang) is the Korean Taeguek (Um / Yang) and it represents the
foundation of Oriental thought, wisdom and philosophy. In the
ITA logo it acknowledges our roots and connection to Korean
martial arts. The Oriental symbols in the middle of the logo is the
Korean characters for Tae Kwon Do.

The Liberty Martial Arts Logo

The red and blue symbol in the center symbolizes our

schools practice and heritage of the Korean martial arts.
The lion head represents the Lion of Judah.

The Korean National Flag

The Korean National Flag, the symbol of the Republic of

Korea South Korea, is named "T'aegukki." The name was
derived from the taeguk circle in the center.

The circle is divided equally and in perfect balance. The red

upper section represents the yang and the blue lower section
stands for the yin. According to traditional Oriental Philosophy, the
two symbolize the great cosmic forces, which oppose each other
but achieve perfect harmony and balance.

The taeguek circle stands for the eternal principle that

everything in the universe is created and develops through the
interaction between yin and yang; thus it symbolizes creation and

The four trigrams surrounding the circle denote the process

of yin and yang going through a spiral of change and growth. The
three unbroken lines at the upper left represent heaven (kun),
the three broken lines at the lower right represent earth (kon),
the two broken lines with an unbroken line in the middle at the
upper right represent water (kam), and the two unbroken lines
with an broken line in the middle at the lower left represent fire

The white background of the flag symbolizes the purity of
the Korean people and their peace-loving spirit. The flag as a
whole is symbolic of the ideal of the Korean people to develop
forever together with the universe.

The American Flag

The American flag is the symbol of the United States of

America. The blue in the flag represents LIBERTY. The red in
the flag represents BLOOD. The white in the flag represents
COURGE. The 13 stripes on the flag represent THE FIRST 13
COLONIES. The 50 stars represent THE STATES IN THE

The Taeguek
Forms (poomse)

Taeguek Il Jang - Symbolizes Heaven

This form represents the source of creation by presenting
the most basic techniques. It, therefore, is the foundation
from which the other forms build.
Taeguek Ee Jang - Symbolizes Joyfulness
This form represents a frame of mind which is serene and
gentle, yet, firm within, the state from which true virtue
smiles. This form consists of movements that are made
softly yet firmly with control.
Taeguek Sam Jang - Symbolizes Fire
This form represents fire and sun, and their characteristics
of warmth, enthusiasm, and hope. Like fire, this form is filled
with changing bursts of power connected with a continuous
flow of motion.
Taeguek Sa Jang - Symbolizes Thunder
Thunder, combined with lightning, evokes fear and trembling
but reminds us that danger, like a thunderstorm, passes as

suddenly as it comes, leaving blue sky, sunshine, and rain
freshened air in its wake. It teaches to act calmly and
bravely in the face of loud and terrifying dangers, real or
imagined, knowing that they, too, shall pass.
Taeguek Oh Jang - Symbolizes Wind
Although there are horrible and destructive winds, such as
the typhoon, hurricane, and tornado, the wind's true nature
is gentle but penetrating. The wind teaches humility and
good-natured actions. Like a gentle breeze, this form is
simple. Yet like a storm, it is strong and powerful.
Taeguek Yuk Jang - Symbolizes Water
Water always flows downward and, in time, can wear away
the hardest granite. We learn that we can overcome every
difficulty if we go forward with self-confidence and
persistence. Like water, this form is gentle yet destructive. It
teaches that man, when faced with a challenge, can
overcome it by persistence and unwavering belief.
Taeguek Chil Jang - Symbolizes Mountain
A mountain is stable and cannot be moved. This form
teaches us to move only when it is necessary to move - and
then move rapidly - and stop suddenly and solidly, standing
like a rock. It teaches commitment to notion and to
immobility, for one must not waver.
Taeguek Pal Jang - Symbolizes Earth
The earth is receptive, gentle and nurturing. It signifies the
infinite concentration of UM energy. (UM is a passive,
receptive force) The Earth hugs and grows everything. It
nurtures in silence and in strength. It teaches us the
importance of the life force within ourselves and to respect
life in all forms.
