Hapkido Hap = Harmony or Coordination, Ki = Energy or Inter Power, Do = Art . 

​                        Hapkido means "The Art of Coordinated Energy"

Hapkido is a complete self-defense system which incorporates the redirection of force found in Aikido and Jujitsu, the devastating joint locks and throws found in Chinese systems, and the awesome kicking techniques of Taewkondo.
