Hwa Rang Do was developed by some among the same group of "masters" who came up with Hapkido.

It claims to be the system used by medieval Hwa Rang (flower youth) of the Shilla Kingdom, who were a medieval Korean version of the Hitler Jugend.

That claim, of course, is completely non-sensical. The system was developed during the post-colonial period (1945 and on).

There is no such thing as "Combat Hapkido" unless you count a recent "development" that attempts to take advantage of recent popularity of combatives and grappling arts.

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
