The two-year-anniversary of German Sunmudo school.

Dear martial arts friends – anjonghasejo!

With great joy and filled with thankfulness I send you today some pictures from the two-year-anniversary of our German Sunmudo school.
The school mandala was shown for the first time to the public, and our first student, Oliver, finished his last Kup-test and is now in the one-year-lasting process of preparing himself for the first Dan.
He will be the first German, who learned and trained Sunmudo in Germany and will – hopefully – pass the Dan-test next spring.
There have been also regulary Kup-tests. 12 students managed to pass these tests.
Shifu Serge Seguin from the Shaolin-Kungfu School “Blue dragon”, came to support us with his traditional “Lion-dance”-group from Munich. For the first time the “Shaolin-Lion-dance” was shown in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
We have had many guests and good food, tea, cake and coffee had been served to our guests – among them leaders of other martial-arts-schools.

So, please join our happiness and thankfulness! J

Best wishes from your student and friend Axel / Hae Woal from Germany

Denmark Sunmudo Seminar 2014

The Grandmaster recently held a Sunmudo Seminar in Denmark where he had the opportunity to share Sunmudo and even time to see some sites. A big thank you to Jimmy Nakel and family for their hospitality. He was happy to share Sunmudo with the Danish people who he felt had a warm and beautiful countryside.

Golgulsa Summer Youth Camp 2014 Starts Soon!


During the summer season, we offer Summer Camp to school children. Children are a poignant display of growth and energy, and just having them at the temple is loads of fun!

They have the opportunity to learn horse riding, archery, traditional drumming (nanta), and folk singing. They participate in chanting and 108 bows every morning. Every evening, they take time to reflect on their days and what they have learned. And, of course, they do Sunmudo.
During their stay we update the Korean sunmudo blog daily, so if you want to keep current on the pictures, check often >>>

The camp will run from Sunday 20th July – Sunday 17th August
Price list = 350,000 won (1 week) 700,000 won (2 weeks) and 1,100,000 won (4 weeks)
