Squeeze Page – Haidong Gumdo


Haidong Gumdo is a sword based martial art that is rapidly growing in popularity here in Texas as well as the USA nationwide. Gumdo is also known as Kumdo, or Geomdo. Those words are a translation of the meaning of the word ‘sword art’ in Korean language.The meaning of Gumdo is the same as ‘Kendo’ in Japanese. ‘Haidong’ roughly translated was ‘Land by the Eastern Sea’, and was another name for Korea that had been used by other countries in ancient times.Thus, ‘Haidong Gumdo’ means ‘Korean sword art.’ Haidong Gumdo is different than traditional Kendo or Kumdo in that the focus is on battlefield engagements and the need to defend against multiple attackers rather than a focus on a single death blow.

What you learn? Like other martial arts, Haidong Gumdo trains the body, the mind, and the spirit. It also teaches self- defense, self-confidence, character development, patience, concentration, meditation, and etiquette. If you learn it, you must learn how to respect others, above all. Along with those lessons, you learn two- handed style sword patterns (Ssangsoo Gumbup and Yedo Gumbup, Bonkook Gumbup, etc., ‘gumbup’ means forms), sparring, cutting and many other things.

Who can learn? As you can imagine from the expression “the sword art that can be practiced by 3 generations,” there is no age limit in learning Haidong Gumdo. Starting from around age 8, juniors, teens, adults and even seniors can exercise this sword art. It is not that difficult to see children, parents and grand parents exercise together in Korea. Seeing people of the ages of 50 or 60 who start to learn this sword art is not particular either. You don’t need any martial arts background to start training. In fact, many of our students are the parents of children who have trained in our school, and who wanted to learn a martial art after seeing the benefits of martial art training for their kids. Haidong Gumdo is open to everyone!
