Hapki-SunDo brings the balance to your Ki through Zen meditation.

Hapki-sundo brings balance to your life.

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 click here.

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.

We are filled with excitement as we eagerly wait our return to the dojang on Monday 9th November. We warmly thank-you all for your support and will see you soon.
The effort and energy of the past eight (8) months cannot be truly described. In bedrooms, living rooms, sheds, garages or back yards, from the darkest winter’s night to the light of spring, we kept going. Well done all.
