Seon-Kwan-Moo (禪觀武; 선관무) is the name of a Korean "Seon (Zen)", Buddhist cultivation method for enlightenment, employing a martial arts training regimen and meditations.

Modern history

By the end of World War II, the art of Seon-Gwan-Moo (also Sun-Kwan-Moo, Korean: 선관무; 禪觀武) was almost lost. In the years following the war, Yang-Ik (양익 대선사; 兩翼大禪師) reassembled the remains of an old Vajrayana tradition - Keum–Kang-Yeong-Kwan (금강영관; 金剛靈觀) and developed its current style.

In the 1960s, Yang-Ik began to teach at the Bom-Oh (also Pomo,Korean – 범어사) Temple, the Korean equivalent of the famous Shaolin Temple of Chinese martial arts.[citation needed] One of his most outstanding disciples, Won-Uk Seunim (원욱스님) continue teaching his master's art by the name Seon-Gwan-Moo (or Sunkwanmoo), and a couple of other prominent monks (such as Jeok-Un Seunim) teach other forms of the original art, as well. Kim Ji-Woong (김지웅) is the head of the Sun-Kwan-Moo Headquarters in Seoul, and Kim Yeon-Sam (김연삼) is the head of the Seong-Nam branch in South Korea,outside Korea the only club currently operating is situated in Israel.
