Basically its a Korean Art, involves striking along with some other things including weapons. They also use Dan Jun breathing, like using the inner ki/chi and all that

Hapkido is an art which uses Korean strikes and kicks similar to TKD. The grass roots of Hapkido comes from Daito Ryu Aiki Jujitsu, one of the Japanese styles of JJ. From this we use joint manipulation and joint locks. We also use many throws and sweeps and other takedowns. One of the key principles is circular movement. This concept is a constant in the Hapkido curiculum. Hapkido is condidered a soft art as we dont use hard blocks. Hapkido prefers a redirection of power, using an opponents strength and momentum against him. I hope that this helps you to understand a little Moobrack.
