By Scott Shaw

Hapkido, "The Way of Coordination and Internal Power," is one of the three major Korean martial arts. Founded in 1963 by Master Choi Yong-Sul, it is a complete system of self-defense, encompassing striking, kicking, and grappling techniques.

Conceptually, Hapkido techniques more closely parallel those of Aikido than Taekwondo. In fact, as the author describes, there is a parental link between the arts.

In this book, Scott Shaw presents a precise description of the techniques, concepts, and applications of this Korean art of self-defense. Profusely illustrated with 220 clear photographs, this instructional book describes and depicts self-defense techniques against a variety of punches, holds, and kicks. Hapkido has been
utilized by military and law-enforcement agencies worldwide, but until now little has been written> on it.

This book is one of the few in English to present the essential techniques of this fascinating art. Hapkido: Korean Art of Self-Defense is a must for those interested in "soft-style martial arts.Scott Shaw is a master instructor in the Korean martial arts of Hapkido and Taekwondo. He is certified as a 7th degree black belt by the prestigious Korea Hapkido Federation, and frequently travels to Korea to train directly under the art's top masters. Shaw has published articles in a number of international magazines, including Black Belt, Inside Karate, Inside Taekwondo, Karate/Kung-fu Illustrated, Martial Arts Masters, and Taekwondo Times. He is also the star of the four-part instructional video series on Hapkido by Unique Publications.
