Haidong Gumdo is a dynamic and exciting Sword art based on battle field techniques which along with its origins and evolution may be traced back through 2,000 years of Korean history.
Haidong Gumdo is the traditional martial art of the ancient Koguryo Kingdom that ruled over the eastern Asia, including the Korean peninsula and Manchuria. The true purpose of Haidong Gumdo is to execute justice with the light of the sword that is as majestic and brilliant as the morning sunlight on the Eastern Sea.
