Three principles of hapkido techniques:

  • Nonresistance "Hwa", 화 - non-resistance, is simply the act of remaining relaxed and not directly opposing an opponent's strength.
  • Circle principle "Won", 원 - the circular principle, is a way to gain momentum for executing the techniques in a natural and free-flowing manner.
