What are you doing getting into bar fights?

If you relate that story, most of the hippie New Age Aikido dojo will not take you in. They really prefer non-confrontational students (not the kind who says "uh, I don't think that Kotegaeshi stuff will actually let you catch my fist when I try to punch your face out" - Bam! See, didn't work).

As for the effectiveness of Hapkido kicks and punches, well, I regard them to be about as realistic as Tae Kwon Do kicks and punches.

Checkout a boxer or a Muay Thai fighter and see how their kicks and punches fare compared to Hapkido or Tae Kwon Do (or even Shotokan) kicks and punches.

For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence. Sun Tzu
