Yes, Hapkido techniques were incorporated as part of the Hoshinsul (self defense) aspect of Taekwondo from its earliest development, however many modern-day schools are lacking in qualified teachers who have been properly instructed in this area.

Keep in mind that while the same kind of anatomical joint manipulation, pressure points, throws and projections assimilated from Korean Hapkido into Taekwondo are taught the same, Hapkido has maintained its own identity separate from Taekwondo and is a stand-alone art with a unique approach to self defense that differs from the tactics and strategy of Taekwondo. One is not inherently better than the other, but they each have a different approach to application and priority of techniques.
