I was in tae kwon do for about ten years, but I got to the point i couldn't go any further due to age restrictions. I could continue now, but I don't have the time.

I had a friend that was confined to a wheelchair. He did lots of Hop Ki Do (sp). Dude could lock his wheels and have anyone on the floor in no time! It helped that he could also bench almost 400 lbs. That's what great about martial arts, there's a style for everyone!

ITF style Tae Kwon Do with a dabble in boxing, Jujistsu etc...

Course now that I'm old, I rely on Gun-Fu

Korean Hapkido is a combo of the Korean kicking/striking art of Tae Kyun which was the forerunner to modern day Tae Kwon Do and Tang Soo Do and the Japanese art of Aiki-Jujitsu. It is an awesome self defense system that employs kicks, strikes, joint locks and throws.
Bong Soo Han is probably the most famous Hapkido-ist. He was the stunt double/martial artist for Tom Laughlin in the Billy Jack series of movies in the 1970's.
Just thought you might like to know.

Thanks, I obviously have the style wrong. It was a Korean style that used hand control and close in punching and pressure points, kicking was not an option.

A lot of people have the idea that Korean systems rely solely on their flamboyant kicking techniques for effectiveness. While, depending on the style, kicks make-up 60-80% of the offensive/defensive techniques. The other 20-40% is comprised of hand strikes, joint manipulation, pressure point strikes, throws/take downs and weapons systems.
Throughout my years of training, I have come to know a number of handicapped/wheel chair bound persons who studied my arts for their "other" defensive applications.
