Instructor Klaas Barends of the World Hankimuye Federation explains the ABC of Hankido Self defense at a seminar in Lohja, Finland.
The A stands (in Finnish) for Asema. Asema can be translated as position, in English we use ‘Advantageous postion’. The B and C stand for Balance and Control. According to Klaas you should first take care of your position, after which you can break your opponent’s balance and only we you break his balance can you seize control.
