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.

“If you are tired you’re not strong, if you are tired you’re not fast, if you’re tired you don’t have good technique, and if you’re tired you’re not even smart".
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?
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.
