comment Why are firearms not part of the martial arts world?
@dmckee: To clarify, it was muskets that were introduced at that time. The hand-held cannon was introduced by the Chinese earlier. Basically a big lacquered vase held in the unenviable position between the legs and fired (as one technique), or braced in the arms... They had a nasty habit of blowing up after a couple of shots.

Added an answer based on what I managed to find. I can not be sure, but based on your information it's the best I can do. Perhaps if you can take a look and give me corrections as to what you're intending, then I can give you a better answer.

Unfortunately, I've only seen english descriptive names for anything in Hapkido. Perhaps I can track down something in Korean... Let me see...

comment How can I respectful​ly raise concerns about class difficulty level/teac​hing style at my club?
@RSid: I do understand; there's a lot of disingenuous behavior that goes along with being part of hierarchical social structures. Your rank, without being named an instructor, still puts you at a lower rank than they are; being self-effacing means you're offering them a way to save face, which can be ingratiating. There is always the other option used in the military: "Permission to speak freely, Sir?" This, however, is immediately confrontational. There is not an easy answer; ultimately, whatever path you take, you'll be making a compromise between your feelings and theirs.

comment What is a good push-up routine to build punch strength?
Science is an oft-under-appreciated virtue in the martial arts world (except when it can be exploited and misinterpreted for television shows).

I don't know precisely how useful this is, but there are two books here (Hapkido Bible and Hapkido II) that are often referenced as "must haves" of the Hapkido world, and would likely be able to answer your questions: hanmudo.com/merchandise
