    hey guys, i posted this post on the mma discussion forum and got some great responsed, but i wanted to see what you guys had to say. a buddy of mine recently invited me to start to train Hapkido with him. i am kinda new to hapkido and i dont know all of the rules or basics, but it seems pretty cool. i was curious about your thoughts on Hapkido and whether or not it is a worthwhile martial art or if maybe i should keep looking for something else. and feedback would be appreciated

    Kent, if thats your real name. Have you ever wrestled? Hapkido prepares you for guys that come into you with jumping side kicks, and chambered punches. Wrestling is applyable to mma, or if your into that gentle shit take Judo.

    Well thats good you are a wrassler, I was too. To save you time, Hapkido looks good on a movie screen or in Mortal Kombat deadly alliance. (Scorpion has it) It's not worth it in my opinion. One of my friends who's into TMA practices hapkido, he sparred with my friend who takes kyokushin karate and submission wrestling, it was pretty one sided when they sparred. My hapkido practicing friend got pwned, he took lots of hard leg kicks and punches to the body.

    If you want to be good at MMA you have to pick a bit of everything. I suggest Muay Thai mainly for striking (and atleast a few months of boxing, to improve the punches) and wrestling + bjj.

    Hapkido is another style of karate. Good for stunts.

    You are a wrestler... and maybe in need of some stand up... take Muay Thai.
    A knee on the face goes a long way than a jumping triple side kick.

    I do hapkido, and i can say if you want to learn control and restraint, hapkido is for you. It's not matched for sparring, and you can't catch and lock jabs and fast punches, you just end up kickboxing, which hapkido doesn't stress so much, but ever tried to grab a guy who is reasonable at hapkido. You'll be in a lot of pain of you do. Hapkido works very well against Judo.

    Hapkido is excellent in learning how to hop.
