Info about "Kumdo video"
Kumdo, or Korean Kendo, is a unique Korean sword martial art developed from the ancient elite warrior class who dedicated their lives to the study of martial arts and the protection of their country. Kumdo means “The way of the sword” and its ancient form originated in Korea and Japan nearly two thousand years ago as a form of sword fighting used by warriors to defend their territorial hold over the country. Kumdo is therefore founded on a strong sense of patriotism and loyalty to one’s fellow countrymen and family.
The techniques of Kumdo are a modern adaptation of sword techniques described in a Korean text Mu Yea Do Bo Tong Ji (comprehensive illustrated manual of martial arts) and the amalgamation of techniques from other Korean martial arts. The techniques and movements of Kumdo are beautiful and dynamic, with a balance of speed, power and accuracy and oneness with Body, Mind and Spirit
