Finally, a way to Shed Pounds, Tone Muscles, and Blow off Stress that is Safe, Effective, and FUN!
You’ll be AMAZED at how GOOD you FEEL after your
FREE Martial Arts Classes at our school in Temple.
Read on to find out how!!
If you’re like me, you know that the current research says exercise not only helps us look and feel our best, it helps us stay a lot healthier.
We all know that we SHOULD exercise, but the problem with most exercise programs is that they are just too BORING! Running or even walking mile after mile, or lifting the same weight 10 – 20 – 30 times just gets old fast . . . AND it usually hurts!
Our Innovative Martial Arts program is totally different. Every movement has a purpose – a purpose that might one day save your life! Some of our students have actually been able to defend themselves from dangerous attacks, while most are grateful just knowing how to avoid trouble.
my name is Master David Shadden. I’m very proud to say that HUNDREDS of adults in the Temple area have a BLAST in every class while learning awesome skills and watching the pounds melt away.
Central Texas Tae Kwon Do students from 18 to 80 also tell us they use the benefits of improved concentration, self-discipline, and confidence every day at home, at work, and in social situations.
I’d like to show you how you can experience all of this, and more . . . with NO RISK!!

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.
What type of swords do you learn to use?
The basic sword used in Haidong Gumdo is the traditional Korean long sword, which looks quite similar to a Japanese Katana. The blade is slightly curved and only one side is sharp. Most training is done with a hard wood sword (mokgum). After black belt the student regularly receives training with a real sword (jingum) for cutting and forms. For safety reasons the mokgum or kagum (blunt metal sword) are used in group classes.
The good news is that you can reverse the ravages of age with a consistent exercise program. Martial arts training will help you develop remarkable skills while increasing your STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, and FLEXIBILITY. Imagine feeling young again, with all the strength and confidence you had at 18 . . . but with today’s wisdom!

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!
What is a normal class like?
A normal class runs around 50 minutes depending on the level of practitioners and the size of the class. All classes begin and end formally with respect being paid to the flag, the instructor and one’s fellow students. At the beginning, the instructor leads stretching and warm-up exercises. The second stage of a class involves executing basic cuts and stances. These basics are used as part of the warm-up drill in every class to develop the students’ understanding, fitness, endurance and technique. Practice of the basic techniques can become a meditative aid for some students. The third stage of class is determined by level, but can involve instruction on the basic patterns, Sang Soo Gumbup, or engagement techniques such as Gyuk Gum. The class will also typically spend a few minutes in meditation working on Dan Juan breathing. At the final stage, students line up according to their rank and the instructor concludes the class with final instructions and comments.
What are you waiting for?
Haidong Gumdo above all else is fun. Whether you are middle aged and looking for a source of exercise and tension release, or are young and wanting to learn to swing a light saber for your upcoming movie role we know you will be glad.
