Grandmaster Ties Martial Arts to Modern Life

Sunmudo Grandmaster Jeog-Un Seol and his two assistants demonstrated Sunmudo, the Buddhist practice of Zen martial arts, as a part of his speech on Tuesday. Seol lectured on Sunmudo and the role that harmony of mind, body and breath could have in an industrial culture. Grandmaster Jeog-Un Seol discussed Sunmudo’s history, philosophy and usefulness in fast-paced industrialized societies and followed with a demonstration of the Buddhist practice of Zen martial arts in an event in Cannon Chapel on Tuesday.

Seol, who is also the chief executive administrator of the Golgul Temple and chief director of the Institute of International Sunmudo Association and Sunmudo College in Korea, gave the demonstration as the kickoff event of the Emory Friends of Korean Studies program. The event was sponsored by the Korean studies program in the department of Russian and East Asian Languages and Culture, the East Asian studies program and Jeondeungsa Temple.

Speaking between the glow of two candles and dim overhead lights, Seol lectured for just under an hour to approximately 60 Emory students and faculty. Seol lectured through translator Bae Myungsook, visiting associate professor of Korean studies.

He explained that Korea used a Sunmudo-based monk-soldier system to defend against various invaders such as the Mongols and the Japanese until the system was abandoned in 1894.

Sunmudo was revived in Korea in the 1960s, and by the 1980s, the Sunmudo method had regained wide popularity.

“A sound body and a sound mind,” Seol said, “were essential to Korean defense.”

He explained that the three intended impacts of Sunmudo in the modern world include mental peace, sound bodily health and positive social effects. The grandmaster said that these results are achieved through harmony of mind, body and breath.

“In an industrialized world,” Seol said, “people’s minds need peacefulness.”

Following the lecture, Seol and his two assistants demonstrated Sunmudo, a system that is at times meditation and at other times fast-paced martial arts.

A PowerPoint presentation ran behind the martial artists during the performance, featuring scenes of nature, Buddhist temples and music that fit the style of the show.

After the performance, audience members were encouraged to participate, and the assistants taught basic Sunmudo moves to approximately 17 students and faculty.

College Freshman Hyekyung Kim was impressed after watching the demonstration.

“It was cool when he balanced on one foot,” Kim said.
In addition to the event’s visual aspects, the performance also provided a perspective on Korean culture. College Freshman Kari Black found it good preparation for her studies abroad.

“I plan to go to Yonsei” she said, referring to a university in Korea. “I had no idea about Sunmudo, so it was a good introduction.”

The event did not end with the lecture and demonstration. After the show, the audience filtered downstairs for a reception with Korean food and a chance to chat with Seol.
