The True meaning of the word Hapkido
Transcription of the Video
You know Hapkido is – the word Hap means “together. Body and Mind and Spirit three “hap”. The three together make one.
Your body inside has three you – regular body you, regular mind you, regular spirit you and these three make one. You have three and three make one.
This is SinMoo Hapkido. Regular Hapkido – together but it is very difficult to make one so one have three and three make one.
This is Sam il Shingo philosophy. So I’m teaching you regular body you, regular mind you, regular spirit you, make together. How make together? that is the point.
You know your meditation – what kind of meditation do you have? how much meditation? Concentration Meditation, Physical Body Power Meditation and Spirit Meditation.
So this is the concept of one have three and three make one. then count to 2000 every day, Power Meditation and count to 2000 meditation makes the spirit charge. You understand right. so this is my teaching. my philosophy is very important.
