Haidong Gumdo is a sword-based martial art that is rapidly growing in popularity throughout the US. It trains the body, mind, and spirit while teaching self-defense, self-confidence, character development, patience, concentration, meditation, and etiquette.
The basic sword used in Haidong Gumdo is the traditional Korean long sword, which looks quite similar to a Japanese Katana. However, most training is done with a hard wood (mokgum) or foam sword for safety. We offer Haidong Gumdo for Children (ages 8-13) and Adults (ages 14+). Haidong Gumdo is open to everyone, and you don’t need a martial arts background to start.
