Grand Master Lee’s Philosophy is that Hapmudo is like our six senses.

For example:

Hapkido is your ESP …Form of pressure point, joint locks, kicking
Tae Kwon Do is your mouth …Hard style of Martial Arts
Tai chi is your nose …Form of breathing exercises
Aikido & Jujitsu are your ears …Circular joint locks
Judo is your skin …Form of throwing
Kung Fu is your eyes …Soft style of Martial Arts
Completing your face and giving you more than one sense of awareness to expand on. Grand Master Lee teaches Martial Arts in the same way, giving you a complete understanding on the Martial Arts and its many techniques.


When you see water, it is very peaceful. When water is calm that is harmony. When water is disturbed it creates, waves, and can flow anywhere. The stronger the disturbance, the stronger the wave, for instance the harder the attack, the greater the resistance. When you hit water hard with your hand, you hurt your hand. If you gently lay your hand in water, it will flow gently. It absorbs the force of any foreign stimulation. You can never sever water, it is always flowing. When heat touches water, it flies (steam). When cold comes, water gets hard (ice). Water is purity, it cleanses everything. Water cleans your life. Whatever you do water can clean it.

AIR THEORY (Dan – Jun breathing)

Air supports life. Deep breathing allows oxygen to flow throughout our body stimulating our nerves much like a massage would stimulate our muscles. Through practicing deep breathing we can control our emotions, if we let our emotions control us, we loose our breathing capacity.

SUN THEORY (Sharing happiness)

The sun gives us life-supporting energy. Its sunshine sets us free from darkness helping us find answers to our problems. It is like the theory of Hapmudo, harmonizing the mind and body to find happiness in daily life. By sharing this happiness we promote world peace.
