KUMDO SWORD SKILLS

Kummooyeh, or Kumdo for short, is composed of meditation, basic movements, sword patterns, cutting, sparring techniques and Korean traditional archery. Each type has a different purpose for developing Kumdo students.

The techniques and movements of Kumdo are beautiful and dynamic, with a balance of speed, power and accuracy, but have a clear deadly purpose.

Kumdo requires discipline and a dedication to training. A new student begins with learning the basics such as etiquette, different postures and footwork, and how to properly swing and cut with a sword. We are the Pennsylvania Headquarters for the World Kummooyeh Federation.

  • Waza - you’ll learn over 40 solo techniques
  • Katachi - wood swords known as 'bokken' help you learn patterns safely
  • Tameshigiri - test cutting using a real sword on rolled mats

Integral observance and practice of sincere etiquette make up the core curriculum of our dojo as well.

Gain Speed, Strength,
And Laser-Like Focus.

To handle the sword with such grace requires a certain level of physical fitness.

That's why, in these classes, you'll train in strength, agility, focus, and coordination in order to reach this point. And along the way, you'll have powerful inner-transformations as well.

It's More Than The Way of The
sword. It's a Way of Life.

Through the training you’ll become more in touch with yourself, and your mind will become clearer, sharper, and more focused. The ultimate goal of Korean Sword is not to help you become a master of the sword - but to live a better, more well-rounded life.

  • Making the right decision in any situation becomes easier.
  • Dignity and calmness replace fear in dangerous situations.
