Higher Mind or Spirit
Sinmoo is the foundational philosophy taught by Dojunim upon his creation of Sinmoo Hapkido. Hapkido can be translated as 'the process of bringing the mind and body into harmony.' Sinmoo is not only the style, but shows the emphasis on the internal training where it roughly translates to 'the martial art of the higher mind.'
In Sinmoo Hapkido techniques are trained not just to be practical and effective in self-defense, but also to strengthen and balance the mind and the body through challenging and focused training.
