Hapkido is a fully comprehensive martial art and its practitioners learn a large variety of kicks, strikes, joint locks, throws, pinning techniques, weapons (short sticks, cane, rope) plus use of pressure points. As suggested by the "ki" in HapKido, Hapkido practitioners learn breathing exercises (called danjun hohup) to strengthen their internal energy or "ki". The ki is then used to generate substantial force in performing Hapkido kicks, strikes, and techniques. Hapkido practitioners might use a kick, non-kicking strike, or a pressure point to disable an opponent. Alternatively, these techniques might be used to control an opponent's balance and then use a variety of joint locks or throws to disable an opponent.
Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido is a member of Korea Hapkido Federation.

Jin Jung Kwan Hapkido is a very serious system of self-defense that is
often taught to Military Special Forces as well as local,
state and federal law enforcement agencies. It is not to be
confused with ‘Hapkido’ as a ‘supplementary’
This style of Hapkido is based on
real situations of aggression. Motions are fast and
direct using the straight line and not circular trajectories
contrary to the akido. These techniques are fast and
powerful, for this reason, this style was adopted by
the Korean SWAT TEAM. This style wants to be effective
above all, in the respect of the tradition while keeping
the authenticity of original Hapkido.
Jin Jung Kwan headquarters trains the most professional instructors/masters who then share their knowledge with their students.
