The real question is what type of training or martial art are you looking for?

Aikido is primarily a style or system that uses proper balance and form, exploiting the poor form and balance of an opponent. Some Aikido practioners have skills in strikes and kicks, but as a rule most schools do not offer these skills as part of the curriculum for Aikido.

Hapkido is very similar is that many joint locks, manipulations, throws, and breaks are taught, but the big difference is in Hapkido the student starts out learning some very powerful kicking and striking techniques.

Both are very worth while endeavors and I'm sure you'll find either very satisfying
