Hankido is a martial art using circular flowing movements.


The unique aspect of Hankido is that it consists of twelve basic self-defense techniques (ho shin ki) which are connected to 24 breathing techniques: twelve for the defender called 'Techniques of the Sky' (Chun Ki Bub) and twelve techniques for the attacker called 'Techniques of the Earth' (Ji Ki Bub). Heaven and Earth are each other's opposites and thus resemble the Chinese Um (Yin) and Yang.

There is more to Hankido than just these twelve circle techniques, but these form the stable basis for every Hankido practitioner.
