Calgary School of Haidong Gumdo
Haidong Gumdo is a Korean Sword art based on several older Korean sytles. It is a complex, beautiful sword martial art that blends power and speed with smooth fluid motion. Haidong Gumdo is focused on combat versus multiple opponents using large, circular cuts as opposed to some other sword arts which employ techniques geared towards one-on-one or individual combat.
Haidong Gumdo focuses exclusively on training with the sword. Students begin using a wooden practise sword (mokgum) to learn basic techniques, then move on to blunt metal practise swords. Advanced students (2nd Dan Black Belts and above) learn cutting techniques with live swords. Combat sparring
is a limited part of the training with the majority of the time spent practising sword patterns and cutting techniques.
