Hapkido Techniques vs. Front Kicks From Multiple Ranges

The front kick might just be the most common kick in the world, so not knowing how to counter it leaves you extremely vulnerable. Han Woong Kim helps remedy this problem in these exclusive videos!

In all likelihood, the front kick was the first leg technique you learned when you took up the martial arts. Now you know it like the back of your hand. So does everybody else. Reality-based translation: Because the front kick requires very little training to pull off — it doesn't have to be precise to do damage — it just might be the most common kick in the world. Therefore, if you don't know how to counter it efficiently and effectively, you're leaving yourself vulnerable to defeat in a tournament or to injury on the street. Enter sixth-degree black-belt Han Woong Kim, who teaches Jang Mu Won hapkido, the fighting system founded by his father, Black Belt Hall of Fame inductee Chong S. Kim. Like all Jang Mu Won black belts, the junior Kim is a master of kick defense. In these hapkido technique videos, he teaches his art's responses to a front kick delivered from four different distances.
