Hapkido fighting stance

Hapkido is an eclectic Korean martial art that employs hand and leg strikes at long distance and joint locks and throws at close range, emphasizing circular motion. Fighting advantage is gained by using footwork and body position to increase leverage, avoiding a direct confrontation of strength. Hapkido evolved from jujitsu techniques brought from Japan to Korea following WWII.

Mortal Kombat

Hapkido is used by Scorpion as his primary fighting style in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Deception, Unchained and Armageddon.

It is also used as primary fighting style by Blaze in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and Unchained because of him only having fighting styles from other characters, and by Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition, because he was a palette swap version of Scorpion in that game.

The character Monster also used this fighting style in Deception's Konquest Mode.

Apparently, this fighting style is used in several characters in early development in Deadly Alliance, Deception and Armageddon.
