Hapkido Joint Locks

Hapkido is well-known for its effective and extensive use of joint locks during training. Therefore, this page attempts to examine a wide variety of Hapkido joint locks. In Hapkido, joint locks are categorized by the joints that they attack. For the upper body, there are wrist locks, elbow locks, shoulder locks, finger locks as well as arm-bars. Leg locks and ankle locks are also practiced in Hapkido.

When applying joint locks in Hapkido, it is important to keep your balance and to use your strength against your opponent’s weakness. A person has an optimal area of control that forms a box in front of their body. This box ranges from your shoulders to the hanging elbows and is approximately the length of your forearms and hands plus 15 cm (6 inches). When applying joint locks, you want to apply locks in this area of control. Ideally, you want your opponent to have their hands outside their area of control and you have disrupted their balance. To keep yourself “centered” requires more than keeping your center of balance over feet, it also requires a good breathing technique in order to apply your locks smoothly and accurately.
