Grand Master Cairney, since 1995, has been studying and practising Sundo – Korean Zen Buddhist meditation, philosophy and exercise.  20 years later in 2015 Grand Master Cairney introduced HapKi-Sundo. Grand Master Cairney has been training, teaching, developing and growing Korean martial arts since 1975.

You can experience the flexibility and good health that can be derived from the fundamental stretches, breathing exercises and postures that form the basis of Hapkido (Korean martial arts).  Both Hapkido and HapKi-SunDo have as a goal the union of the body and mind, but for different purposes.  Whilst Hapkido is a self-defense subject, the best self-defense is to achieve good physical health, which is connected to the ability to achieve good mental health, Hapki-SunDo focuses on the stretching, breathing, mindfulness and balance. 

Take a moment to be still

Through Hapki-SunDo you can take control of your health through your own effort, whilst at the same time stepping into another cultural perspective.  Trainees can enjoy the increased vitality that results from deep breathing exercises (via enhanced intake of oxygen by the lungs), improved posture and flexibility.

“Achieve mindfulness”

Classes are also conducted in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Everyone begins with whatever condition they are in at the time. The goal is to incrementally improve your ability to embrace the movements and exercises.  Those who already enjoy good health and fitness can take on a whole new regime to enhance what they already have achieved. 

Hapki-SunDo is suitable for teenagers and adults of any age and fitness level. Bring balance, vitality and strength back in to your life.

“Co-ordination of energy”

Hap Ki Sun Do – Way  [‘do’] of coordinating [‘hap’] energy [‘ki’] wth Zen [‘sun’] . More details below.

Become more flexible, develop a stronger more balanced body with improved posture. Restore the balance that we all seek in a busy modern life.

Beginners welcome, every class allows everyone to benefit immediately.

HapKi-Sundo

Ki is the word for universal that is known in Korea and Japan.  It is also known as Chi in China, Prana in India (Sanskrit). An acceptance of the existence of Ki is fundamental to the Asian philosophical concepts, such as Yin-Yang and Taoism and Seon/Zen.  Martial arts (including Hapkido), creative arts (such as painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, calligraphy, music and dance), medicine, and all practices that emphasise the connection between mind, body and spirit, such as SunDo, all rely on and utilise Ki energy. 

Ki is energy that is the basis of everything in the universe. It is therefore sometimes described as universal energy. 

Hapkido, literally translates to the way of unifying with/harmonising with/joining with Ki energy, Hapki-Sundo is an extension of Hapkido:

  • Hap – unify/join/harmonise/coordinate
  • Ki – Vital Energy/ Energy of the universe
  • Sun – Korean for ‘Zen’ or ‘Chan’, simplicity and meditation
  • Do – the way/ the discipline/ the art

Specifically, Hapkido training seeks to understand and access the power of Ki (energy) to maximise the potential for survival in a threatening situation where physical techniques can be used to overcome an aggressor.

However, our greatest enemy is ourselves.    

Fundamentally, when we are born we inherit an original amount of life force that we must use throughout our life.  Additionally, we gain energy through food and through breathing.   

Through Hapki-SunDo we seek to sense and enhance our natural ability to experience the flow of energy within our bodies, removing blockages. The basis of energy flow throughout our bodies is understood in the same manner as in oriental therapy systems.  There are twelve meridians or rivers of energy (Kyung Rak) that flow through our body, with specific points that can be accessed to provide treatment such as in acupuncture, acupressure or Ji-Ap (Shiatsu). These meridians are linked to the major organ systems.  Theoretically, a body that is free of blockages in these meridians can achieve optimal health. 

Some areas along theses energy lines are referred to as chakras.   These are energy centres that can be focussed on in training.  The main energy centres for training in Hapki-SunDo are located on the centreline of the body ( see diagram below) .  These are widely understood by the term “chakra”. The most important chakra in Hapki-SunDo is located just below the navel and is called the Hadan-DanJeon (lower level energy centre). It is here that we aim to focus our mind and bring fresh energy into our bodies and accumulate it.  

By attaining flexibility in our body we can reduce blockages in the energy pathways and achieve better energy flow, leading to natural balance.

Training consists of:

  • Warm up and loosening exercises
  • Stretches
  • Postures
  • Deep breathing exercises
  • Slow movements
  • Meditation
  • Exploration of oriental thought systems including Taosim, Seon (Zen/Chan) and Buddhism that have influenced the development of Hapkido historically.

Introductory Workshops are offered to enable students to understand the basic concepts and nature of the subject.
