Haidong Gumdo - Korean Sword
Haidong Gumdo’s combination of graceful movements and powerful techniques make this Korean sword art truly dynamic. As a new student to the art you will begin your training with a wooden practice sword known as a mokgum. This is to teach the student to respect the art and the weapon in their hands and ensure the safety of all students; no live blades are used until students reach black belt level.
All classes begin with a warm up followed by a series of basic movements intended to aid in perfecting the commonly used techniques. You will then move on to cutting drills and forms. These drills are intended to help students increase their strength and agility. We end the class with sparring using foam swords and protective equipment, putting into practice what you have learned.
Join us and see how truly amazing this art is.
