What makes Haidong Gumdo unique?
Unlike Kendo and its Korean equivalent, Kumdo, the focus in Haidong Gumdo is not dueling but on the tactics of outdoor, pitched battles. Ultimately, Haidong Gumdo does have dueling in it, but it is much more dynamic than in Kumdo. It focuses on multiple attackers and uses a much broader range of techniques and attacks. Haidong Gumdo can be practiced by people of all ages and physical conditions. It is perfect for those who want to study martial arts, but don't want all of the normal kicking and punching motions. Haidong Gumdo is much softer in style compared to other martial art forms, such as Tae Kwon Do or Karate.
Mental benefits of Haidong Gumdo
Students of Haidong Gumdo will learn meditation and proper breathing exercises that will relieve stress and promote a healthy body and mind. However, don't let the grace of this martial art fool you. Although the many forms in Haidong Gumdo are elegant and beautiful, they all have an underlying background of strength and ferocity.
Powerful, complex and beautiful, Haidong Gumdo is a wonderful martial arts style that can be pursued throughout a person's life.
