  • Joint locks

  • A very few simple joint locks have always existed as part of Taekkyon.

    However, approximately 90 to 70 years ago, more were practiced.

    Taekkyon joint lock techniques involve locking of joints, striking of joints, and pressure points.

    These techniques are not dissimilar to those of Hapkido, Jiujitsu, Aikido, AikiJiujitsu, or the modern martial arts of Krav manga and Systema.

    Joint locks of Taekkyon, and any martial arts mentioned above aim to unbalance, subdue, and arrest an opponent.
