Aikido is a modern Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy, and religious beliefs. Ueshiba's goal was to create a martial art through which a practitioner could achieve the ability to defend himse lf without injuring his attacker. Aikido emphasizes joining with an attack and redirecting the attacker's energy, as opposed to meeting force with force, and consists primarily of body throws and joint-locking techniques. In addition to physical fitnes s and techniques, mental training, controlled relaxation, and development of "spirit" (ki) are emphasized in aikido training.
Hapkido is a dynamic and somewhat eclectic Korean martial art. Hapkido, which shares the same Chinese characters with aikido, translates literally to joining-energy-way, but it is most often rendered as the way of coordinating energy or the way of coordina ted power. -- from wiki.
