Have you ever seen in the movies where a master swordsman instantly draws his sword from its sheath, performs fast slashes, then calmly places the sword back in its sheath?
Haidong Gumdo is a Korean Sword Art that draws from battlefield techniques and tactics to build a curriculum for mental, physical and spiritual development. Students learn forms, step drills, sparring, sitting and moving meditation. Adult Black Belts learn bamboo and straw cutting. Unlike Kumdo (Kendo), the focus in Haidong Gumdo is not on dueling but on the tactics of outdoor, pitched battles. Powerful, complex and beautiful, Haidong Gumdo is a wonderful style which can be pursued throughout your life.
But it's more than just "sword tactics". Haidong Gumdo is also about self-reflection, and becoming a better, more confident, more peaceful person.
To handle the sword with such grace requires a certain level of physical fitness.
That's why, in these classes, you'll train in strength, agility, focus, and coordination in order to reach this point. And along the way, you'll have powerful inner-transformations as well.
Through the training you’ll become more in touch with yourself, and your mind will become clearer, sharper, and more focused. The ultimate goal of Haidong Gumdo is not to help you become a master with the sword - but to live a better, more peaceful life.
This is the true way of the warrior. The end result:
If this turns out to not be the right program for you-we'll give you your money back so you can invest in another program to help you with your fitness and health goals.
