Traditional vs Combat Hapkido

I was watching a video on youtube, and realized there are two different styles of Hapkido the traditional style and combat style, and I was wondering what is the difference?

Combat Hapkido is a modern variation of Hapkido. It removes a lot of excess things and tries to simplify the style to make it easier to appply and learn. I believe it is more of a reality based self-defense.

i dont see much difference between combat and traditional hapkido other than making combat hapkido more simplified so people in large groups can learn it in a fast paced amount of time.

but the same thing is done with traditional hapkido. in some aspects "combat" in hapkido comes off as a marketing gimmick IMO

thats cool. the reason i think they the same is i did hapkido for a little bit, nothing really extensive just a few months worth of classes. but my current tkd GM is also a HKD GM


for the Korea HKD assosiation, the techniques and the way ive seen him teach is just about the same as GM Pellegrini's combat Hapkido system that he occasionally teaches to US troops.

thats why i dont think theres much of a difference besides perhaps dojang ettiquette but then again im also starting to consider the different lineages of the traditional side of HKD

as others have said, they took out the fluff to make it more of a self defense art. i took a few classes of combat hapkido 2 years ago to try it out. i soon learned most of the instructors in the art are TKD instructors who got a black belt in combat hapkido after a few seminars and from watching video tapes. i also learned they didnt spar at all because 'it was too dangerous' so i quit.

I agree, it seems like more of a gimmick than anything else. A way for GM Pelligrini to get paid.
