What Is the Difference Between Taekwondo and Hapkido?

What Is the Difference Between Taekwondo and Hapkido?

With it being popular in America to combine the arts of Taekwondo and Hapkido, the question arises “What is the difference between them?” Master Matt provides his thoughts and experiences with each of the arts. I have studied Taekwondo and Hapkido since 2001 under the teachings of Grandmaster Young Seok Kim in the Joong Do Ryu Federation.
