Grand Master  Cairney

Branch Owner & Grand Master

Training, teaching, developing and growing Korean martial arts since 1979

Melbourne Hapkido Academy unofficial journey started in 1979 when Grand Master Cairney started his martial arts training at a young age in Wollongong NSW with Judo.

Moving to Taekwondo in 1979 he achieved 2nd Dan as well establishing a branch in the area in the 1980’s. 

Grand Master Cairney started his Hapkido journey when he moved to Melbourne in 1993 and eight years later established Melbourne Hapkido Academy in 2001 at the Holy Trinity in Kew. 

In 2005 Melbourne Hapkido Academy moved into its’ first full-time permanent training centre. Then in 2013 Grand Master Cairney established Melbourne Hapkido Academy’s current permanent purpose built training centre, the first Hapkido school to do so in Melbourne. 

In addition to Hapkido, 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, bringing the Zen in to martial arts training, giving students a more complete picture of Korean martial arts traditions and training.

Grand Master Cairney has a dedicated team of skilled and qualified instructors and black belts at Melbourne Hapkido Academy.  Grand Master Cairney would like to invite you to train with him and everyone at Melbourne Hapkido Academy in learning the ultimate martial art – Hapkido. Grand Master Cairney started his journey in 1975, it is never to late to start, begin your complete martial arts journey today (click here).
